COMIC STRIP demonstration video
COMIC STRIP is a 90-minute theatrical documentary film, in development by two-time Emmy® award winning producer/director Leo Eaton and Communication & Cinemas Professor Robert Lemieux, that reveals how the 'funny pages' – and their evolving form of comic books and graphic novels – captured the essence of American culture and left a dynamic cultural imprint on America from the 1890s to the present day. Comic strip artist & scholar Brian Walker is executive producer.
