“Who Is The Question?” Documentary Is Fantastic!

The Question
Thanks to Joseph Hughes over at Comics Alliance for giving us the heads up on this fantastic short documentary exploring what is hands down one of my favorite DC Comics characters.

The documentary by Gary Lobstein briefly covers the Question’s creator, Steve Ditko, as well as presenting interviews with the various talented artists who have brought the character to life throughout the years in comic books and the Justice League Unlimited animated series.

So watch the documentary below to hear from the likes of Denny O’Neil, Greg Rucka, Rick Burchett and none other than the man who gave Vic Sage/The Question his voice in the animated series, the legendary Jeffrey Combs!

  1. Gary, we thank you for making such a fantastic documentary! Looking forward to your next project.
    @Sam – that is why the readership of the Retroist is so fantastic! Nostalgia is a heady drug and one that none of us want to see ruined by focusing on a single subject matter. As for my posts I can assure that I’ll continue to spread the love among video games, movies, and toys….and comic books when the need arises. :)

  2. Hey Vic, did you catch the episodes of Justice League Unlimited that featured the Question? I’m guessing you probably did, but if not you gotta check those out – they were great.

  3. MadPlanet – “A is A. And no matter what reality he calls home, Luthor is Luthor.” I certainly have caught those Justice League Unlimited episodes and you are quite correct that they are great. I also loved that little nod to Steve Ditko with the A is A comment…like in Ditko’s Mr. A character!

  4. You are most welcome, Charlton Hero! I won’t lie…when I saw Gary’s documentary for the first time I thought you would dig it the most. :)

  5. You werent kidding man. The information on Steve Ditko and his characters is so limited in scope, its so rare to see new informed sources to read or watch! Appreciate it very much Vic!
