What did you think of STRIPPED?

The Dave Kellett and Frederick Schroeder joint Stripped! hit Kickstarter donators last month. The video was made available last week on iTunes, with the option of getting it on DVD. The movie is filmed in interview style, with a bunch of sit-down chats with comic strip and webcomic luminaries. The narrative takes viewers from the history of comic strips to the newspaper crisis, and provides different viewpoints as to the future of comic strips. Also, Bill Watterson totally drew the poster for it.

But I’ve spoiled too much. What do you, the viewers at home, think of STRIPPED?

About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.

  1. I just watched the trailer, and I get the impression it’s about the juxtaposition between newspaper comics and webcomics, with a bit of antagonism between the two. It actually kind of turned me off both. Plainly put, newspaper comics are a very narrow genre compared to webcomics. The one thing about webcomics is that they’re influenced by all sorts of print comics. So you can find things that resemble Euro and American long form comics, you can find gag comics about a variety of subjects, you can find manga, and everything in between those types. Newspaper comics are… newspaper comics.

    The focus of the documentary seems very narrow, and I don’t think I’ll pay $15 for that. The two subjects taken seperately would probably make for a more interesting documentary.
