Giant Days Special Tackling Holiday, London Cliches

Boom! Studios has announced that they will be releasing in November the Giant Days 2017 Special. Creator/writer John Allison is putting together, in his words, “a tribute to the films of Richard Curtis, and the Bridget Jones movies, by someone who has seen those movies perhaps once, and maybe not all the way through.” Artist Jenn St-Onge (Jem: The Misfits) chimes in: “Readers can expect some holiday hijinx from our main ladies (with only the best intentions, of course), some […]

Titan Comics Seizes on Current Events to Promote Fighting American Launch

On July 4, Titan Comics (a British company, interestingly) released the following teaser poster to promote the October launch of Fighting American, a property created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1954. It’s clearly intended to tweak Marvel Comics, whose big summer event is titled “Secret Empire” and features Captain America brainwashed into being part of a Nazi-inspired group. Fighting American was created by the men who originally created Captain America because they no longer owned their first idea. […]

Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun Volumes 7-8

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun because volume 6 wasn’t quite as funny as I hoped, but I’m glad to see that these recent installments bring back the balance and comedy I was looking for. The series is a collection of four-koma (panel) strips, grouped into chapters of 12 or so pages around the same subject. The premise is a high schooler, Nozaki, who is a professional manga-ka, and most of his friends either help […]

I’m Going to See Batman and Harley Quinn in the Theater

A reminder that the newest original DCU animated film, Batman and Harley Quinn, is showing in selected movie theaters tomorrow (Monday) night. This will be the first of the 30 (!) films I’ve seen on the big screen, and I’m looking forward to it. I’ve previously written about the release details, including the trailer, but here’s a new clip of the voice talent being interviewed about the movie. I like what I heard about tone and approach. The classic animated […]

Curious George’s Creators Get a Movie

Hans and Margret Rey created Curious George, that standby of children’s books, in the late 1930s, but their lives were interesting beyond that, as I’ve learned from the trailer for Monkey Business: The Adventures of Curious George’s Creators. This documentary, directed by Ema Ryan Yamazaki and narrated by Sam Waterston, tells of how this couple of German Jews (and their manuscript!) living in Paris narrowly escaped the Nazis to bring their charming little monkey to children all over the world.

Riverdale: The Complete First Season

I was harsh on Riverdale when it started, but the series grew on me as it continued. (Thanks to the CW for making it easy to watch through their various apps.) Now, for an evening in with a glass of wine, binging a few episodes at a time, it’s an enjoyable teen soap opera guilty pleasure. Riverdale: The Complete First Season releases next Tuesday, August 15. (The studio, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, provided me with a free review copy of […]

No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guys’ Fault I’m Not Popular! Volume 10

It’s been quite a while since I checked in on No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guys’ Fault I’m Not Popular! — I last reviewed volume 4, and now here we are at volume 10. I’d gotten a bit tired of the cringe factor in constantly seeing Tomoko get humiliated or embarrassed, but I thought it might be interesting to check back in to see how an episodic comedy kept itself going this long. The strategy used […]
