Herding Cats: A Sarah’s Scribbles Collection

This third collection of Sarah Andersen’s webcomics (after Adulthood Is a Myth and Big Mushy Happy Lump) adds a bonus: a section with some smart advice for aspiring artists. Herding Cats: A Sarah’s Scribbles Collection can be enjoyed whether or not you’ve read the previous books. The topics are similar — including feelings of inferiority, how much she loves her cat, engaging in the wrong choice even though she knows better (particularly when it comes to spending time), dealing with […]

Whatever Happened to the Rose of Versailles Plans?

As I’ve been looking back at manga I’ve enjoyed over the past few years, I realized that there was a much-anticipated project announced two and a half years ago that has yet to appear. As part of their appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con(TM) in 2015, Udon Entertainment announced that they would be publishing Riyoko Ikeda’s classic shojo manga Rose of Versailles. Dating from the 70s, Rose of Versailles is the story of a woman dressing as a man to […]

The Art of Harley Quinn

I had no idea, when I posted preview pages from The Art of Harley Quinn, just how huge this book was! It’s almost the size of a TV tray! All the better to show off the art pieces within in glossy color. It’s not just pretty pictures, though. There’s a foreword by Paul Dini, character co-creator, with some thoughts on how Harley Quinn lends herself to different approaches. There’s a brief history, with quotes and memories from key players, of […]

The War Bride’s Scrapbook

As she did with The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt, Caroline Preston has created a visual history of a woman who never existed but whose life is enlightening. The War Bride’s Scrapbook portrays how Lila found herself married after knowing Perry only a few weeks. The daughter of a status-seeking Virginia woman and an insurance salesman, Lila was too tall and plump for her mother’s taste. When war breaks out, she finds ways to be useful, culminating in renting a room […]

Lego DC Super Heroes Movies Continue With the Flash

Continuing the line of home video animated movies featuring Lego DC Super Heroes from Warner Bros. Animation, they have announced Lego DC Super Heroes: The Flash, coming this spring. Here’s the description: Reverse-Flash (Dwight Schultz) manipulates the Speed Force to put the Flash (James Arnold Taylor) into a time loop that forces him to relive the same day over and over again — with progressively disastrous results, including losing his powers and being fired by the Justice League. The Flash […]
