I highly recommend it for the interviews with legendary cartoonists Hy Eisman (one of my teachers at the Kubert School) and Russ Heath (the last Heath interview before he died) – both of them having had their art swiped by Lichtenstein.

You can now watch WHAAM! BLAM! on multiple platforms, including Amazon Prime, Apple TV, YouTube, Vudu, Vimeo, and more.

If interested, here’s the link…
