Additional Information

STRIPPED is a feature-length documentary on comic strips, featuring the first-ever recorded interview with Bill Watterson of Calvin & Hobbes. The film sits down with world's best and brightest cartoonists, to hear their opinions on the art and business of comic strips, and what happens to the art form as newspapers die. STRIPPED hears from Jim Davis (Garfield), Cathy Guisewite (Cathy), Mort Walker (Beetle Bailey), Mike & Jerry (Penny Arcade), Matt Inman (The Oatmeal), Jeff Keane (The Family Circus), Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics), Lynn Johnston (FBOFW), Stephan Pastis (Pearls Before Swine), Bill Amend (Foxtrot), Kate Beaton (Hark! A Vagrant) and over 50 more. The doc surveys the history and impact of comic strips on modern life, then turns to the critical question: What happens to comics in the shift from print to pixels? Set to an original score by Stefan Lessard of Dave Matthews Band, STRIPPED is the ultimate love-letter to comic strips. Accompanied on the DVD by the bonus full-length interview with Jim Davis of Garfield, this film is a must-see for any comics fan.

This documentary is a wildly entertaining —and stunningly accurate — discussion of how the comic strip has evolved from its newspaper roots to its Internet renaissance. Calling upon a veritable Who's Who of cartoonists from across the spectrum — syndicated cartoonists, webcartoonists, independents and others... who create strips, gags, graphic novels, and more —this is a captivating look at a uniquely American art form.

And, of course, with the first recorded interview with "Calvin & Hobbes" creator Bill Watterson, this is a movie that the true fan of comics and cartooning MUST watch.

I'll be honest. I've watched this movie —opening sequence to end credits — well over two dozen times. As a creator, it's inspiring as heck. As a fan, it's start-to-finish happiness.
The moment I heard about this project, I knew I was going to love it. When my copy arrived in the mail, it was everything I had hoped for and more! Collecting an incredible range of creators from all realms of the industry, it explores the history of comics, the creative process, and ponders what will come next for the strips we love in our increasingly digital world.

The inspiration and insight I've received from this documentary are boundless. On my first viewing (okay, if I'm 100% honest it's been EVERY viewing), the moment I heard Bill Watterson's voice I immediately teared up. To hear the thoughts of the man that created Calvin and Hobbes, whose work so completely captivated me ever since I was a child, was nothing short of magical. And that's only the tip of the iceberg! There are so many great perspectives shared by the 50+ creators featured. Whether it's finding new ways to access the creative spark and "shoot down" the muse, or finally having the... Read more
Stripped is a must-have for anyone who is, or has ever been, a fan of comics. The movie is well produced, paced and scored, presenting you with the past and present of comics in a way that leaves you wanting more and more. The interviews were well selected, with titans of the old order as well as the new represented. When it was over, I watched it again immediately, wishing that it could continue on for hours longer.

I cannot recommend this movie enough.
