The Comic Strip Hits 100

A film by Diane Perelsztejn

The Comic Strip Hits 100 is a marvellous celebration of the art of the comic strip. Narrated by the American novelist Jerome Charyn, and featuring rare interviews with some of the masters of the art form including Moebius, Schuiten and Franck Pé, The Comic Strip Hits 100 traces the evolution of the comic strip and its largely unacknowledged relationship with painting, sculpture, literature and the cinema.
