Final update: An unknown party has released an official statement on this.
“Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, the COMIC-CON EPISODE 4 tour has been cancelled. However, the film will be released April 6 in theaters and on VOD and the good news is that it will now be in theaters in many more cities. Morgan will be making special appearances in many of these theaters and you can check the website closer to April 6 for updates.“
Update: A single small piece of news has been released about this stating that “the multi-city tour has been cancelled” No reason was given. More as it comes.*
The documentary film-maker Morgan Spurlock most famous for Super-Size Me, is taking his crew to comic-con to document the comic-con experience from a variety of angles. Spurlock made an appearance on a recent Doug Loves Movies where he stated that a mini-con event will be organized at each city this movie screens. It’s a very cool idea. The trailer is not cut in such a way that I’m feeling particularly compelled to see the flick, but this film-maker obviously has chops, so this could be worth a look.
The documentary is called: “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope” the screening tour begins April 5th in Atlanta. Watch the trailer and see the full touring schedule here.

P.S: Please, can we stop with the goofy and clichéd bursts, panels, dot gain effects and “hero horns” for every stinking project relating to comics? It’s all starting to look the same.
