“I always thought comics were the most brutal, tedious thing you could do with a crowquill pen, but I was wrong,” says artist Molly Crabapple after collaborating with musician Kim Boekbinder and animator Jim Batt on “I Have Your Heart.” Now watch the beautiful product of painstaking labor — a frame by frame by frame stop-animated and hand-drawned spectacle unfold to “an accordion sing‐a‐long song about love, loss, and open‐heart surgery.” It starts off cutesy and archaic, then someone’s heart gets cut out and then… Romance. With a cat. It’s [a little of] what you think it is.
