Morgan Spurlock Focuses On Comic-Con in Book & Film

Morgan Spurlock, the Academy Award-nominated director of Super Size Me, has a new documentary film and companion coffee table book out about Comic-Con.

In Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope, the filmmaker explores the iconic nerd fest through the eyes of seven dedicated fans. The film comes out in theaters this fall, but the book is on shelves now.

Spurlock explained the idea in an interview with Entertainment Weekly: “The idea of it was we were going to find different people who represented Comic-Con — an artist, a writer, a comic-book shop owner, a collector, someone who is competing in the masquerade. The guts of the film is us following these people and telling the story of Comic-Con through their experiences.”

Our Media Beat video show interviewed Spurlock last year. Follow these links to watch the three-part series.
