A Positive Look at Change
22 February 2017 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Comic strip artists discuss the state and future of the art form with the decline of the newspaper medium.

What I really appreciate about this film is how it takes a positive look at the comics industry. The story of newspapers dying and comics dying with it is an easy story to tell, but as this film points out, that is only half the story. It's not a "death", it's a change.

Just as with the news, some papers will die, others will evolve, and new sources will spring up... the idea of news does not die. Certain models float to the top. With the Internet moving in where newspaper was, will some strips fade away? Yes. And it is truly a sad story for those who lose their jobs, but unfortunately it is always this way in all industries.
