Comic Art Meets Animation
Comic book art and animation often work the same side of the street. Both use drawings to capture and portray motion. Both often make very inventive uses of the "frame" their images are contained within. And both are seriously misunderstood by the wider public. Some of these films pick up the classic comic book visual style. Others are made by animators who are also accomplished comic book artists. And others are animated adaptations of comics or graphic novels. But the bottom line is to showcase the wild, vibrant, sometimes violent - but enormously fun & entertaining - crossroads at which these two amazing artforms meet.
