Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Robert Kirkman, SECRET HISTORY OF COMICS is a six-part documentary series that explores the stories, people, and events that have transformed the world of comic books. The series takes a deep dive into the most accessible and often subversive modern popular art form and will cover topics ranging from origin stories to the untold history behind iconic characters. "At the end of the day I am a comic fan first and foremost. I am a lover of the medium and the stories it enables people to tell," said Kirkman. "I'm excited to partner with AMC once again to bring the stories of some the most influential people in comics to a television audience." Featuring interviews with icons such as Stan Lee, Patty Jenkins, Lynda Carter, Kevin Smith, Famke Janssen, J.K. Simmons, Michelle Rodriguez, and Todd McFarlane, among many others, this series tackles a different theme in each one-hour episode, including: "The Mighty Misfits Who Made Marvel," which explores how Jack Kirby and Stan Lee changed comics by inventing Marvel's most beloved characters, combining their artwork and writing to start a cultural revolution; "The Truth About Wonder Woman," which chronicles how one man created a feminist superhero while male superheroes were rising to stardom; "The Trials of Superman," documenting the story of how the world's first superhero came to be and how Superman's creators fought for credit; and more.
On Monday, December 11, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, AMC premiered "Image Comics: Declaration of Independents," the season finale of SECRET HISTORY OF COMICS. Seven renegade artists shock the comic-book industry by starting their own company, Image Comics, to rival giants Marvel and DC.
