THE BEAT GOES ON: SOME MORE GREAT REVIEWS

"...This is a documentary ahead of its time...CARTOON COLLEGE is poised to make a big difference in the way that comics creating, and even pursuing an education in comics, is perceived. It gives all due stature to comic art as a craft, as a passion, and as a struggle, but also highlights the turning tide right now as indie comics are increasingly in the public gaze and suggests that this is a crucial, frenetic time for the future of comic art."

Read Hannah Means-Shannon's complete review at The Beat.

Other recent reviews and mentions at:

  • Moviebox.net: "...Time to break out the blue pencils and gum erasers, folks!"
  • App Store Arcade: "Our overall verdict: Great"
  • The Comic Pusher: "...For any audience it's especially exciting to see in-the-flesh interviews with the likes of Ware, Mouly, Feiffer, Sikoryak, Spiegelman, and many more..."
