Stripped is a 2014 documentary film about comic strips and their transition from the failing newspaper industry to the web. Work on Stripped began in 2010. The film's original concept was to make a documentary about cartoonists in their studios.
Stripped features interviews with over 70 comic creators, who discuss their trade and its prospects in the 21st century. Interviewee Bill Watterson created the poster for Stripped, his first published art since ending Calvin and Hobbes in 1995. The film was crowdfunded through Kickstarter, and was released on the iTunes Store on April 1, 2014.
