You've read the report, now watch the movie!

Our friends at iFanboy have provided CBR News with their exclusive footage of superstar writers Brian Michael Bendis ("Ultimate Spider-Man," "Secret Invasion") and Robert Kirkman's ("The Walking Dead," "Invincible") lively debate at last weekend's Baltimore Comic-Con. Two of comics' most outspoken talents, the pair have been engaged in an ongoing discussion since Kirkman released his bold mission statement in August here on CBR, and argued in Baltimore as to the natures of work-for-hire and creator-owned comics, and what respective places those business models should take in shaping the industry's future, particularly with regard to Hollywood.

When you're through checking out this great video from iFanboy, don't forget to visit CBR's Community forum to discuss the Bendis-Kirkman debate with fellow comics readers.
