The first trailer and poster for a documentary on Comic-Con have been released this week, opening up a world that not many of us, especially here in the UK, get to experience.

Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope is directed by Morgan Spurlock with executive producers Stan Lee and Joss Whedon.

Filmed at San Diego Comic-Con 2010, the documentary follows the lives of five attendees and explores this amazing cultural phenomenon which, starting out as a convention for a mere 500 comic book fans, is now attended by over 140,000 wizards, vampires and wookies alike.

I think it looks great, and it is definitely something I intend to see whenever it is released. For now, you can see the trailer on iTunes.
