HOOKED ON COMIX - Volume 2
HOOKED ON COMIX Volume 2 offers a rare glimpse at six cutting-edge cartoonists talking about their lives, their work, and the comics scene in Chicago, IL. HOOKED ON COMIX is an entertaining documentary that delves into the dedicated and creative minds behind some of the best work in contemporary comics. HOOKED ON COMIX takes an over the shoulder look into the back breaking, sometimes mysterious world of cartooning, where one person's vision comes to life on paper.
"Boy! My favorite city (Chicago) and my favorite subject (squirming, self-conscious, pasty-faced cartoon geniuses) all in one movie! This is what we in the business call 'filmmaking magic.'"
- Daniel Clowes, Creator of Eightball
"HOOKED ON COMIX and HOOKED ON COMIX Vol. 2 are at long last available on DVD. I highly recommend these documentaries ... They feature revealing and often hilarious interviews with a ton of great artists, including (in Vol. 1) Daniel Clowes, Los Bros. Hernandez, Julie Doucet, Jim Woodring, J.R. Williams, Pat Moriarity and even includes footage from some classic Fantagraphics warehouse parties, including some live Beat Happening footage. Vol. 2, focuses on the Chicago scene, includes Chris Ware, Ivan Brunetti, Charise Mericle, Archer Prewitt, Jessica Abel, and Terry LaBan."
