New Kickstarter: documentary on comics in the modern age.

Well, put me in overshoes and call me a duck.

It’s a Kickstarter to get some of the final digital rights for various images and video clips for Stripped (a documentary about the comics industry, and how it’s getting weird in the modern era). You may or may not care about that: but you probably do care that the documentary includes a voice-only interview with Bill Watterson.

Yes. The Bill Watterson, of Calvin & Hobbes fame.  I gotta think about this one…

    They are still unable to understand webcomic success? Wasn’t this argument settled like, 10+ years ago? Really? Are we sure this wasn’t shot a long time ago and has been sitting on someone’s shelf?

      I’d almost buy that argument, except that they have a phone interview with Bill Watterson. You got one of those, you don’t sit on it. :)

    Unless they have Bill Watterson saying “I’m sorry,” I don’t think I would be interested in even SEEING this thing. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fan of Calvin and Hobbes. However Bill Watterson is a huge jerk when it comes to the fans of the comic. I wouldn’t go so far to say that there is a unique pit in Hell for Watterson, but honest Calvin and Hobbes’ fans will not line up to shake his hand in Heaven.

    The thing I like about webcomics is that you are usually able to read from the beginning. Take Schlock for example, I started reading it because of Moe, now I am back in 2002 catching up on all the old story lines
