Movie Reviews

Informative, encouraging, fantastic!

"For anyone with ANY interest (AT ALL) in breaking into the comic book industry as an artist, or writer this should be in your library. Put it on, take notes and learn how the comic book world REALLY works from the people who make it turn.
This was far more forthcoming than I expected. I expect a lot of cryptic answers to the question of how to get your foot in the door, I've become so used to people and publishers at conventions saying stuff like "Persevere, persevere, persevere!" Yeah thanks Yoda, care to be more specific?Well these guys are! And the whole thing starts with STAN LEE saying, "If you're a creative person, you can't stop yourself from being creative!" This whole DVD gives me hope for the future! They tell you exactly what people in the comic world want to know about you, if you're a writer or an artist. They take you down the line from, writing, to inking, to backgrounds. I've paid hundreds of dollars on clinics, workshops, etc. to hear what these guys have to say for less than the cost of this dvd, and the whole tone of the DVD as you learn is to "Go for it!"This is a great learning reference from the masters."
DVD inspired me to publish my own comic on the web

"This one has some great tips. However I have to say...why work for Marvel? Where you can be replaced by the next "flavor of the month artist"; who will take all your ideas. Wendy Pini and her husband published Elfquest. Dave Sim did his Cerebus thing. Kevin Eastman and Laird made Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...all without the help of Marvel or DC! I would keep learning how to put down fantastic images by going to classes. Don't work for a major publisher'll be sorry when they make that hit feature film. The company will tell you it didn't make a profit.
Just ask Stan Lee when the grosses started coming in for Spiderman."
A Must!

"I'm a huge fan with even bigger dreams of breaking in. This DVD had some of my heroes (Stan the Man!) talking about what it takes. Don't hit the "play all" feature - it was much better surfing through the chapters."
