My great comics friend Dave Kellett and his buddy Fred Schroeder have released a documentary on comics called “Stripped”. It’s a big wonderful hug to newspaper comics past and present featuring interviews with old school creators such as Jim Davis (Garfield) and Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes) and the new generation of creators like Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics) and Zach Weinersmith (SMBC).

Check out the trailer below and then go to http://www.strippedfilm.com/ to get it on DVD or iTunes or your other favorite movie source! You’re gonna love it!
