SPOILER ALERT

Feels good, man. The Pepe the Frog comic and meme is explored in Arthur Jones' excellent debut documentary about the creator Matt Furie and how his comic book creation became a sensation as intended—including how he lost creative control. Some years ago, he was not pleased when other people took his work and used it for their purposes. Pepe’s use as a meme was widespread and got more attention than from his self-published comic book, Boys Club #1. After appearing on the Internet, that’s when problems surfaced. It isn’t easy being green.
