The Stuff You Can’t Find Anywhere 
Popular media is filled with images of the conventionally beautiful, able-bodied, wealthy, straight, & white. It is no wonder that independent comics have been growing in popularity over the past few decades. Here, individual artists provide readers with intimate experiences through stories of anxiety, police brutality, racial tension, sexuality, motherhood, & more. This short documentary looks at the artists of the indie comics community & the narratives they introduce into popular culture.
