Kaboom! How Comics Changed America

Development of three, sixty-minute films exploring the history of comics in American culture.

A three-part series that looks at the history of comics in America, and how a lowbrow art form rose to the heights of legitimacy. The series explores how outsiders and outcasts have used the medium tell their versions of the American story. We present a broad and inclusive treatment of the many genres that have defined American comics, with a particular emphasis on the lesser-known underground and alternative traditions, and the current wave of creator-owned, creator-driven content.
