Congratulations to Ms. Gail Simone, who (I believe) made not only her comic-book documentary debut with this special, but also the first appearance of a female comic-book writer in one of these things, period. Other comics pros included Mark Waid, Paul Levitz, Stan Lee, Dan DiDio, Denny O’Neil, Art Thibert, Gerard Jones, and Elliot S! Maggin (who revealed that he and Cary Bates spent a couple of afternoons smoking cigars with Mario Puzo when the latter was researching the Superman screenplay). Pretty comprehensive, although the only pro involved in what felt like the last half-hour was Dan DiDio. Also, why not interview Kurt Busiek and/or Geoff Johns, who actually write the things today?
Anyway, off to sleep now. Last week’s comics tomorrow, I hope.
