Guatemala just got its first comics shop.
And filmmaker George Clipp made a short film about it. (you can watch a larger version here.) Apparently the shop has an uphill climb, as half of the population isn’t literate. Hopefully comics can help change that. You can watch the whole film above and there is more about the movie here, including links to more material on YouTube.
