**** A good Overview of the Actual Canadian Comic Book Scene ****
I have the chance to watch this documentary during the GeekFest 2017 and I was engaged with the pace of the film, the movie covers a lot of what the current comic book scene is all about. There was a few extra appearances of celebs in the film that feel too much but not to the point that it feel that was over done.
The film also cover a variety of different artist from Canada like Ty Templeton and Richard Comelly however the real deal of the film is the participation of Alfonso a Canadian-Mexican comic book artist publisher and great supporter of the industry with his own publishing company named Studio Comics, he added a great piece in the doc making it feel real and you can truly see the reason of his success in the comic book scene. At times it feels incomplete and wanting to see more about what Alphonso does.
Also the participation of Ty templeton to the doc adds a nice touch of experience.
over all is a nice educational and "want to see more" film.
