Prepare For Comic Book: The Movie

Face front, true believers, and keep your DVD players handy. Creative Light Entertainment has given us a quick sneak peak at their upcoming direct-to-video release through Miramax, the hotly anticipated (by fanboys, at least) Comic Book: The Movie.

Filmed over the four days of the 2002 San Diego International Comic Convention, this largely improvised comedy brings together some of the best and the brightest of the cartoon voice-over industry to get some face time. As director Mark Hamill calls them, they're some of the best actors you've never seen before.

In addition to leads like Billy West, Tom Kenny, Jess Harnell (Wakko Warner), Daran Norris (Cosmo on The Fairly Oddparents), and Donna D'errico, a bevy of fanboy favorites make cameo appearances. Kevin Smith has a bit that will send comics collectors into apoplectic fits. The grandfathers we all wish we had, Stan Lee and Hugh Hefner, weigh in. But most importantly, if you were at the Con in 2002, you just might be in it, too.

The two-disc DVD will be released on January 27, 2004, and here's what it includes above and beyond a celebration of what we love most. (I'm talking about comics, guys. Don't tell the wife.)

  • Audio Commentary with Mark Hamill & Cast
  • "Four Color Frenzy" - The Making Of Comic Book The Movie
  • "Behind The Voices" featurette with the top voices in animation.
  • Don Swan In-Depth With Kevin Smith
  • Commander Courage Radio Show (you can preview it here on Fanboy Planet)
  • Stan Lee On Comic Book Movies
  • Don Swan's Complete Bruce Campbell Interview (we have an excerpt here, too)
  • Hugh Hefner On Comics And Women
  • Commander Courage Art Gallery
  • Deleted Scenes & Bloopers
  • Cast & Crew Biographies

    That's January 27. But you can pre-order it now through Creative Light here.
