Comic Book Independents

I can’t remember exactly where I picked this DVD up last week at Comic-Con. All I know it was somewhere in the Artist Alley. Honestly, I feel it was worth the $10 I paid for it (’cause every-fucking-thing else there was at least $20…). It’s called Comic Book Independents, and it’s a interview style documentary on creating indy/underground comics. I’ve watched it four times already since last Friday, and even have it playing behind me right now. Some of the creatives interviewed are Kevin Eastman (TMNT), Scott McCloud (Understanding Comics & Making Comics), Eric Larsen (Savage Dragon), Wendy Pini (Elf Quest), and Eric Powell (The Goon). Honestly if you’re interested in creating your own comic, and going the self-publishing route, you should check this out. Trog and I are always talking about ideas for our own comics, and I’m glad to see that he’s actually working on one right now. After watching this I feel a little inspired to start working up one of my own… maybe of a masked super-powered cow… I dunno. Anyhow, check out the trailer below. I’m off to find some dinner (hopefully something that use to have a face and a mother). Later!
