Stripped: The Comics Documentary DVD


Select Quantity!

STRIPPED is a feature-length documentary on comic strips, featuring the first-ever recorded interview with Bill Watterson of Calvin & Hobbes. The film sits down with world's best and brightest cartoonists, to hear their opinions on the art and business of comic strips, and what happens to the art form as newspapers die. STRIPPED hears from Jim Davis (Garfield), Cathy Guisewite (Cathy), Mort Walker (Beetle Bailey), Mike & Jerry (Penny Arcade), Matt Inman (The Oatmeal), Jeff Keane (The Family Circus), Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics), Lynn Johnston (FBOFW), Stephan Pastis (Pearls Before Swine), Bill Amend (Foxtrot), Kate Beaton (Hark! A Vagrant) and over 50 more. The doc surveys the history and impact of comic strips on modern life, then turns to the critical question: What happens to comics in the shift from print to pixels? Set to an original score by Stefan Lessard of Dave Matthews Band, STRIPPED is the ultimate love-letter to comic strips.

Accompanied on the DVD by the bonus full-length interview with Jim Davis of Garfield, this film is a must-see for any comics fan.
