Oscar-nominated filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, TV producer and cult hero Joss Whedon, comic book legend Stan Lee, online film guru Harry Knowles, and producer Thomas Tull are the brains behind Comic-Con Episode Four: A Fan’s Hope, the feature-length documentary film on the ever-growing influence Comic-Con has over comics, film, television, and pop culture as a whole.
This companion book offers an in-depth look at the experience of Comic-Con: what it is, what goes on, and how it became the quintessential center of American pop culture. With an insider’s view of panels, exhibitions, workshops, and celebrity encounters, as well as awards ceremonies and parties, this book provides a unique experience of attending one of the most important events in the entertainment industry as a whole. Including photos and interviews collected at San Diego Comic-Con 2010, and featuring celebrities such as Kevin Smith, Seth Green, Todd McFarlane, Guillermo del Toro, Ellen Page, Bryan Singer, Eli Roth, Kenneth Branagh, Seth Rogen, Matt Groening, Ron Perlman, Nathan Fillion, Gerard Way, and Frank Miller, this book is packed with timeless stories about the Comic-Con experience from the very people who love Comic-Con-and attend year after year. Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope is a must-have for anyone who is interested in the Comic-Con experience or pop culture.
Morgan Spurlock also tweeted this yesterday about a special version of this book:
“There will be an original Limited Ed Comic Con Doc Book (only numbered 5000 copies) going on sale just before CC 2011. The current plan is to pre sell some and make the rest available on preview night @ CC”
It’s scheduled to release on July 4th and you can pre-order it at Amazon for only $16.49! This will no doubt be the autograph book of choice at this year’s Con!
