The Art of Richard Thompson

In the realm of comics, my son started with Calvin and Hobbes at five years old, then went deep into Garfield, took a left and held tight to Foxtrot, and now, at nine, is dedicated to Pearls Before Swine and Cul de Sac. We've followed the Richard Thompson story for some time, but it was only tonight that we finally got around to watching the documentary short "The Art of Richard Thompson", and man oh man... what a talent. If you have about 22 minutes to spare, I suggest giving it a go. One of the best things you'll see all year.
