The Masters of Comic Books

This is an old 1987 documentary interviewing some famous comic book artist.  They share their philosophy and creative process behind some of their finest characters, stories, and series.  I still have a VHS copy of the it.  Harlan Ellison introduces each segment and there are interviews with Will Eisner who created The Spirit, Jack Kirby, who created and co-created many of the Marvel super heroes like Captain America, Fantastic Four, and many others.  Also on it is Steve Ditko, noted for co-creating The Amazing Spider-Man, Berni Wrightson, the horror artist noted for Swamp Thing, and  Frank Miller, and many more.
