A likable bunch
13 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Cartoon College' is a documentary about a small cartooning school in Vermont (perhaps the more-famous Joe Kubert School in New Jersey wouldn't play ball). Famous (to a comic book fan like your humble reviewer) faces appearing include Stephen R Bissett, Scott McCloud and Art Spiegleman (still tagged as "the author of 'Maus'" a couple of decades after that graphic novel's publication - hasn't he done anything else?) The students include a Mormon who is working on a comic about how his older brother used to torture him shortly before discovering he (the brother) was terminally ill; the school's oldest student, a 61 year-old deaf janitor; and the young woman who in her work occasionally references her 'lesbionic' experiences but usually contents herself with writing about menstruation (yes - one of *those*, but she's such a dear somehow you don't mind). Many of the professionals and students reminisce about how wanting to draw made them outcasts at school (one lad sporting a Farrah Fawcett hairstyle says he was often mistaken for 'gay... or British'). It is very enjoyable and the students come across as really likable - far too many sport baseball caps and awful facial hair, though!
