    Shutter #1 – It’s All Perspective, Poppet

    I remember when Shutter was announced for the first time. I was sitting first row in the Novellus Theater of San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts during Image Comics’ 3rd annual Image Expo. I...

    The Weekly Pull List – April 22nd, 2014

    And lo, it was a Tuesday. The day before the true deliverance of comic books unto the world. And lo, comic books were to be delivered the following day. The people sat with anticipation. The fervor...

    Stray Bullets: Killers #2 – Sweet Jane

    There’s something unsettling about David Lapham’s comics. That may be an understatement due to the themes of crime and debauchery that run through many of his stories, but there’s something about his style that suffuses...

    X-Men #12 – Why I’m Dropping X-Men

    So, I’m dropping X-Men. It seems like DC isn’t the only one with crossover-fever. Perhaps more guilty of crossovers that readers are not hugely excited about, Marvel seems to have done it again with Battle...

    Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol

    Dinosaurs. Time travel. World War 2. These three things make for a story not often heard/seen/read in todays media. At least, that’s what I thought until recently.  In the last month, I got my hands...

B-Movie Breakdown: Dead Before Dawn

April 23, 2014 | 0 Comments

Hello, dear readers, this week I give you a movie with a title that lead me to believe it was another one of those parody flicks that takes every horror cult classic and shoves it together like some kind of high school lunch leftover meatloaf. This week’s movie is, Dead Before Dawn, and even though...

Shutter #1 – It’s All Perspective, Poppet

April 22, 2014 | 0 Comments

I remember when Shutter was announced for the first time. I was sitting first row in the Novellus Theater of San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts during Image Comics’ 3rd annual Image Expo. I was clutching my camera, taking shots here and there, and writing notes hurriedly when Joe Keatinge came out to make...

And lo, it was a Tuesday. The day before the true deliverance of comic books unto the world. And lo, comic books were to be delivered the following day. The people sat with anticipation. The fervor of the wait was a mighty one. And the comic books gods looked down upon the world and spoke: What’s...

A good eye and a great attitude–attributes necessary for many jobs, but especially important for a director making her way up in the business. For award-winning screenwriter and director Kim Garland, they’re inherent. We spoke via Skype in mid-February–during the height of the cold snap hitting her home in New York City–she told me afterward she...

There’s something unsettling about David Lapham’s comics. That may be an understatement due to the themes of crime and debauchery that run through many of his stories, but there’s something about his style that suffuses them with a sense of ominous foreboding: no matter what happens, there’s a good chance the story will not end...

The Both – The Both

April 18, 2014 | 0 Comments

One time I had a really bad election cycle and the remedy for this was obviously a trip with a very good friend to see Ted Leo and Aimee Mann in Royal Oak.  I’m a big fan of both — Aimee Mann is my homegirl who composed the soundtrack to my favorite movie, “Magnolia“, as...

X-Men #12 – Why I’m Dropping X-Men

April 17, 2014 | 0 Comments

So, I’m dropping X-Men. It seems like DC isn’t the only one with crossover-fever. Perhaps more guilty of crossovers that readers are not hugely excited about, Marvel seems to have done it again with Battle of the Atom. While by no means terrible, it disrupted other ongoing series while simultaneously achieving almost nothing in the...

Hell yes! This was the album I didn’t even know I was waiting for. True down to the bones rock ‘n roll that isn’t produced, polished, and calculated into a sparkling radio friendly sheen. Too much rock music these days has that sparkle. However, Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell has a diamond in the rough in...

Nickel Creek – A Dotted Line

April 11, 2014 | 0 Comments

In February of this year, pretty much out of the blue, Nickel Creek announced it would be releasing a new album title A Dotted Line on April 1st.  They also announced a limited run of concert dates starting in April through the summer.  They are doing this to celebrate their 25th anniversary as a band....
