The Image Revolution is the latest documentary from Sequart/Patrick Meaney and it covers the whole story of how seven of the most popular Marvvel artists broke uot and started something crazy…and lasting. Latino Review has a new clip in which Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane and Marc Silvestri talk about the fateful days when they announced they were leaving Marvel. The film lsand a glowing review from El Mayimbe. Disclosure: I’m in the movie, but I can’t wait to see the rest of it.
The Image Revolution is an absolute MUST WATCH for comic book fans, and in my opinion one of the best documentaries of the year. Long overdue, the Image story is FINALLY told with the cooperation of the seven founding members. There was a book a few years back called Image Comics: The Road To Independence that tried to tell the story, but it didn’t have the cooperation of Rob Liefeld. That is like trying to tell the story of The Beatles without having the cooperation of Paul McCartney. Then there was last year’s book Marvel Comics: The Untold Story which had nothing more than an excerpt about the formation of Image.
