Marvel 616 Documentary Series

Marvel 616 is a collection of eight self-contained documentaries, each averaging roughly an hour in length, produced by different directors on different aspects of geekdom as they relate to the ever-expanding Marvel empire. So, we get a fascinating look at the history of the legendary Japanese Spider-Man, a brilliant examination of the key role of women as creative forces in the comic book industry, a study of behind-the-scenes work that goes into cosplay (featuring, among others, CutiePieSensei), a look at the world of action figures and Funko Pops, the emotional story of a school putting on a pair of Marvel superhero plays, and so on.

Once again the Hero Press get's all the important pop cultural news to me before anyone else. Always first. Always right up my alley.
