This 25-page companion booklet includes: my thoughts on Scorsese and Coppola saying that Marvel movies are “not cinema,” character mini-bios, the story of how George Lucas made the student film (Electronic Labyrinth: THX 1138 4EB) that gave him the opportunity to change the film industry forever, as well as my responses to some interesting comments from Episode 1.
