Superman-The Comic Strip Hero

This 1981 BBC documentary (from the TV series ARENA) on the Man of Steel may well be the best ever comic book documentary. It features all the usual history already so familiar to fanboys and pop geeks alike but also presents then-new, exclusive interviews with Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (together!), Trina Robbins (on lingering sexism in the Superman storyline), Will Eisner, DC's Sol Harrison, serial Superman Kirk Alyn and Doctor Fredric freakin' WERTHAM himself! After Part 1 you should be offered a chance to click on Part 2. There are a total of 5 parts, all highly recommended!
