Michael Valentine is the Director of the feature length award-winning documentary COMIX: Beyond the Comic Book Pages. Valentine has more than twenty years of experience in film/video production and media asset management, and is an avid comic book fan.
Since he was 8 years old, all Valentine wanted to do was draw comic book characters like Spiderman and Batman. He became a devoted follower of the creators of Image Comics and comic books like Kingdom Come, Goon, and Alan Moore’s Watchmen.
More than a decade ago, Valentine had a vision to make a comic book which morphed into a feature-length movie about the world of comic books told through the thoughts and images of the creators, artists, writers, collectors, store owners, independent publishers, and especially, the passionate fans.
COMIX has won the Award of Excellence from the Indie FEST Film Awards and the Los Angeles Independent Film Award.
Valentine lives in Los Angeles with his wife Lou and is currently working on a new documentary series, Comic Books and Beyond.
