Italy-Based School of Comic Art Making Superheroes in Chicago

On the eve of the big C2E2 comic convention, Chicago Tonight goes behind-the-scenes at a school of comic book and sequential art that started in Italy in 1979. The Scuola Internazionale di Comics -- the International School of Comics -- is based in Rome and runs nine art schools in Italy. Their trade school approach includes teachers who are also successful working artists.
