Reviews:
"A fine documentary film dealing with the alternative comics scene..." - Harvey Pekar, creator of American Splendor

"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".
