Keep with this one. Even thought it might be too nice, it does show you where comic strips are headed in the future.
12 May 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While I have a few complaints about this documentary, much of it is my own personal issue. As for the quality of the film, it's quite good and well worth seeing.

During the first portion of this documentary about comic strips, I was enjoying myself seeing a lot of artists in the flesh...but I was also annoyed at some of this old guard complaining about how comic strips are a dying breed now that newspapers are folding. I think this is nonsense for two reasons. First, many GOOD and ORIGINAL artists have made their mark using the internet and I doubt if comics are going to die anytime soon. Second, a lot of the strips in newspapers SHOULD die--particularly unfunny strips that are barely alive and/or their original artists have long since died!! Despite the likes of Ernie Bushmiller ("Nancy"), Charles Schulz ("Peanuts") and many others assuming room temperature long, long ago, their strips are either being reprinted again and again or are being done by entirely new artists...artists bereft of ideas.

Fortunately, the first issue is dealt with later in the show--and you learn about the many artists who are bypassing newspapers entirely or doing both online and newspapers to make their livings. So, you get to see clever folks who are NOT whining about the deaths of papers simply because they are putting out a product that people want.

As for the second issue, I think the documentary was a bit too nice. It was loathe to complain about these moribund strips and folks who just stopped being funny decades ago. Perhaps I am just a bit more caustic in my sentiments than these folks, but I wish they'd been a bit more confrontational about this aspect of the comic strip world. After all, in a given newspaper, about half (or more) of the strips are by dead folks--and how can talented newcomers ever hope to do anything but go to the internet?

By the way, if you do see this nice film, don't be prepared to see all your favorites. While many, many folks do appear, many others do not. Oddly, Bill Watterson ("Calvin and Hobbes") provides his voice...but you never see this illusive guy!!
