The book entitled, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope, includes photographs and dozen’s of interviews with celebrities and attendees.
In a recent interview with EW, Spurlock was asked about how the idea for the documentary happened. “It came out of a conversation I had with Stan Lee two years ago at Comic-Con. I met Stan at a party, and I went over to thank the guy. I said, “As a kid, reading your comic books gave me so much courage to want to write and be creative.” And Stan goes, ‘Morgan, I love your movies. We should make a movie together. We can make a documentary about Comic-Con!’ ” And that’s the way the cookie crumbs my friends. So who’s as excited about this as I am? Comment away!
