A 90-minute Documentary Film

for Theatrical & TV Distribution


Created by Robert Lemieux & Leo Eaton


Life In The Comics is a 90-minute theatrical documentary film that highlights one of America’s most unique art forms and reveals how the “funny pages” capture the essence of American culture. The film’s story approach is thematic, with a focus on core themes evident in every age of American history: immigration and poverty in the early 20th century and today; wars from WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam, to Iraq and Afghanistan; racial injustice during Jim Crow and the 1960s Civil Rights era to the present; feminism from 1920s Suffrage to the 1970s ERA movement, to the 2017 Women’s March; family life, with its emphasis on humor and realism in family dynamics.
