Anyone watching Robert Kirkman's Secret History of Comics?

The first episode was about Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Second episode was about William Marston, his wife Elisabeth, and Olive Byrne. So far its pretty good. The first episode did a good job of showing how Kirby kinda got over shadowed by Stan without making Stan look like the bad guy. Second episode really got into the kink behind Wonder Woman.

Isn't this a three parter?  Hmm, ok.  I was about to say we'd talked about this before.  I see its something else. I'm gonna have to check this out.  Thanks for the heads up.  The Marston thing wasn't something I knew about previously in connection to him and the writing of Wonder Woman.

I've got it recorded but likely wont see it for a while, i'm way behind on weekly shows, so this on the back burner.
As a Stan Lee fan (and i know he's no Saint) i'm glad to hear he was treated fairly though.

Did it explain how he stole the idea of Spiderman from its original creator?

Ruh?  Maybe I forgot about that one.

No, DLB, it was at 46:22 in the first ep.

Letters, check it.

And a thousand feminists howled.  :P

The first episode was informative and enjoyable. The Kirby style art and moving figures was a nice touch. Seems like a good series to keep an eye on. Looking forward to watching revealing Wonder Woman soon too.

The Superman ep was good but its a story any real comic fan knows by now. I hope they do an episode of Captain Marvel.

Not really. I knew the basic of what happen but the why and how it was resolved I wasn't sure of and I consider myself a true comic fan.  But a Captain Marvel one would be good I know very little about him.

There was so many different legal issues with Captain Marvel. From Dc suing Fawcett which caused the merger to them not doing anything with Captain Marvel allowing Marvel to step in and make their own.

Yeah like with the Superman one I know the basic but not the details.  Captain Marvel was outselling superman so DC sued and won.  And like you said DC didn't do anything with him letting Marvel create a Captain Marvel creating a new problem.  Think they settle the whole thing outta court about the name.

That would be an interesting ep. if done.
I mean, i know the story, but seeing it retold, there are always little things i might learn, even after all this time, or just opinions from different sources i havent seen cited.
