Description
									Kings of the Pages is a documentary short that highlights the Golden Age of the  American comic strip.  In the early to mid 20th century, comic strips were,  perhaps, the most popular form of mediated entertainment.  Many of the  characters and their creators were household names and enjoyed considerable  success beyond the Sunday newspaper.  With their artistry, humor, and  relevance, comic strips became an integral part of America’s  cultural/historical fabric.
