This chapter featured a critical interview with filmmaker/cartoonist Terry Gilliam, and took in his work on 'Help!' Magazine, his influences from the American underground comix tradition (especially Robert Crumb) and his admiration for the Francophone comics scene. The interview also probed Gilliam’s politics in relation to the 1960s counterculture.
