In depth personal account of creative process as told by top Graphic Novel Artists.
2 June 2008 | by j_e_guernseySee all my reviews

This is the most complete and authoritative documentary on graphic novel and comic book artists and their process. I found that by listening to the artistic experiences of others I could gain insight into my own. This is a good video to relieve writers block or inspire other types of creative output. This isn't a commercial for comic books. It's an honest exploration as any good doc should be. It's funny when you get to watch the people behind the art. It becomes clear that it's impossible to really create without tapping into oneself in an honest way. That's why it's so difficult. It should be watched for the interview with the ninja turtle guy alone. (That's what it feels like.)
