Abstract
“The Cartoonist: Jeff Smith, BONE and the Changing Face of Comics” tells the story of one of the most successful journeys in independent comics. In his acclaimed graphic novel BONE, described as “Bugs Bunny meets The Lord of The Rings,” Jeff Smith set out to write and draw the kind of book he had always dreamed of reading. Inspired by the work of Walt Kelly, Carl Barks and others, Jeff’s dream of telling a spellbinding adventure story with wall-to-wall humor and brilliant drawing began in the earliest imaginings of his childhood. “The Cartoonist” takes us down that road with Jeff and his characters, through his early years, college comic strips, detours into animation and attempted syndication, and finally toward the decision to self-publish.
Through interviews with cartoonists and experts, including Scott McCloud, Colleen Doran, Paul Pope, Terry Moore, Harvey Pekar and others, “The Cartoonist” provides an inside look into the art and commerce of creating comics independently.
