If you love comic strips, especially the good old-fashioned ones like Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes, Cathy, Beetle Bailey and the like, you might find this interesting.
Sequential Films is producing a documentary called STRIPPED.
Described as a love-letter to comic strips, it brings together the world’s best cartoonists to talk about the art form they love, and what happens to it as newsprint fades away.
They’ve interviewed over 90 cartoonists, including the ever-elusive Bill Watterson!
If you want to know more, check out their Kickstarter project:
This is the first Kickstarter project that I’ve backed, and I cannot wait to see this film.
Long live comic strips!

That sounds very interesting. What a fun documentary to do. My husband and I were always big fans of “The Far Side” and as a kid, I loved the Peanuts and Garfield.
I grew up reading/watching Garfield, and I still love the Peanuts. Comics have evolved with the technological changes, but those old newspaper strips are to be cherished forever. I can’t wait to see what this film brings. From what it looks like, they have done an impressive amount of work on it.
