“The Rise of Web Comics” by PBS Arts: Off Book explores the ever-growing popularity of web comics and how each individual artist tries to connect to their readers through serious, funny and sometimes off-the-wall stories.
The internet has given birth to yet another new medium: web comics. Moving beyond the restrictions of print, web comic artists interact directly with audiences who share their own unique worldview, and create stories that are often embedded in innovative formats only possible online. Sometimes funny, sometimes personal, and almost always weird, web comic creators have taken the comic strip form to new, mature, and artistic heights.
