In April, Chicago Tonight got a behind-the-scenes look at a school of comic book and sequential art that started in Italy in 1979. When Italy's International School of Comics opened its first North American location, they chose a quiet block of Hubbard Street on the near West Side.  We revisit that story.


The International School of Comics' first North American school is in Chicago. We talk to their talented teachers, including courtroom artist Tom Gianni, and see aspiring artists in action.
