"We went to interview Scott McCloud with the idea that he would be a quick talking head in a feature documentary we were working on.
"In an effort to ease him into the interview we asked him about his 1980’s comic Zot.
"Later when we watched the footage we realized Scott painted an intriguing portrait of himself, his relationship to comics, and a wonderful and overlooked time in comics history all through the lens of a mostly forgotten comic book.
"We wouldn’t be able to use any of that for the film we interviewed him for, so we used that footage to make this film.
"You don’t have to know anything about comics or comics history, but the more you do the more layers you’ll find.
"Like its subject, this film lies at the balance point of esoteric comic book subject matter, and universal human experiences."
Understanding Scott McCloud's Zot! won GeekFest Best Documentary at Los Angeles Comic Con 2022.I shared some of my love for Zot! back in 2015 when writing about the four comic book covers that were most important to me.
