The Cartoonist: Jeff Smith, Bone and the Changing Face of Comics

2009 Rated NR 1hr 16m

Jeff Smith, a dedicated cartoonist from the age of 5, finally received broad acclaim with the publication of his graphic novel Bone. Interviews with fellow cartoonists and Smith's other friends trace his long evolution as an artist. The film also shines a light on sweeping changes in the comics universe -- a largely closed world with its own celebrities. Among the artists interviewed are Paul Pope, Terry Moore and Harvey Pekar.
