Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope

Morgan Spurlock investigates the comics mecca in San Diego

While the queue for the Stone Roses’ Spike Island gig probably didn’t look much like the average line-up for San Diego comic-con, this loving tribute to the latter functions a lot like Shane Meadows’ fond-to-a-fault roses doc Made Of Stone

Director Morgan Spurlock doesn’t delve far into the phenomenon of the geek mecca or the emotions behind it, and you’re unlikely to come away having learnt anything new. 

But his five subjects – including aspiring illustrators and a veteran comic seller – are interesting enough, and Kevin Smith and the like give predictably solid soundbite.
