‘Masters of Comic Book Art’ Documentary is on YouTube

29 02 2012

I vaguely remember this documentary from 1987, and I could be hallucinating or remembering things incorrectly, but I think it may have been shown on PBS at some point. Rescued from the oblivion that is the aging VHS tape, ‘Masters of Comic Book Art’ features such legends as Will Eisner, Frank Miller, Jack Kirby, Dave Sim, Moebius, Neal Adams, Bernie Wrightson, and Steve Ditko talking about their craft.

I’m looking forward to watching this one tonight, for the first time in probably 20 years or more. Thanks to the folks at Comics Alliance for bringing it to my attention. They have a nice article with some highlights of the film here:
