More on Slugfest: 

Executive produced by Anthony Russo and Joseph Russo, Slugfest is inspired by the book Slugfest: Inside the Epic, 50-year Battle between Marvel and DC, by Reed Tucker.

The documentary series chronicles the rise of two groundbreaking publishing powerhouses, Marvel and DC, highlighting their rivalrous yet symbiotic relationship.   Slugfest features the behind-the-scenes endeavors and achievements that defined these industry titans, from the secret crossover inspired by the Halloween parades of a small town in Vermont, to the history behind the first official crossover, a bone-crushing handshake between Superman and Spider-man.  Each story is a gold nugget for fans of both DC and Marvel — helping enthusiasts dive deeper into the history of their favorite publishers.
