Hooked on Comix

This fascinating 1994 video documentary by David P. Moore profiles a half-dozen eccentric comic-book and comic-strip artists based in Chicago: Jessica Abel (Artbabe), Ivan Brunetti (Schizo), Terry LaBan (Eno and Plum), Cherise Mericle (Eye Spy), Archer Prewitt (Sof' Boy), and Chris Ware (Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth). Each claims to enjoy the anonymity of the profession, and all share a rather bleak and ironic view of the world. Moore divulges some of the tricks of their trade as he visits their wonderfully peculiar studios, discovering that Ware plays ragtime and Mericle collects miniature sets. 60 min.
