History of Comics On Film kicks off with the Adventures of Captain Marvel!

In this first part of an ongoing series that focuses on the History of Comic Books, producer Derek Crabbe views comics history through the lens of those comic book characters that are lucky enough to be adapted for both movies and television.
If you enjoy the musings of James Rolfe or Doug Walker, you'll probably enjoy this vast project which begins with the 1941 Republic Film Serial "The Adventures of Captain Marvel."

Very cool Derek. Knew he was an early one but didn't know Captain Marvel was the first CBM character to film.
