Update #4

Video Update

Comment

With huge, huge thanks for your continued support...and to encourage you to keep spreading word of the film to fellow comics-lovers, we wanted to share four more "rough cuts" (no sound correction, no color correction) from our interviews...including:

Jeff Smith (Bone) On the minimalist, essential nature of cartoons
Scott Kurtz (PvP) On childhood aspirations of being a cartoonist
Darrin Bell (Candorville) On the lack of inclusive role models in comics
Scott McCloud (Understanding Comics) On inventiveness in the digital age, and the dominance (so far) of strips
