Top 10: Graphic Novels & Trade Paperbacks of 2011

28 December 2011 1:28 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Last year’s graphic novel and Tpb Top 10, was filled with some modern classics including Parker: The Outfit, Northlanders, Scott Pilgrim, and Beasts of Burden, so 2011’s offerings have a lot to live up to. As with last year’s this chart will only contain books released in 2011 that I have personally read.

1: Daytripper | Vertigo | Fábio Moon & Gabriel Bá

Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá can do no wrong, and Daytripper is their best and most personal work to date. The Brazilian twins tell the story, or rather stories, of writer Brás de Oliva Domingos; each chapter is a day in the life of Brás, with each day ending in the same way. Daytripper is one of the most poignant comics I have ever read, chapter 8 especially, which is odd as Brás is absent for that story. I look forward to seeing how Moon & Bá follow this. I should also »

Ken Russell dies aged 84

28 November 2011 5:35 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Ken Russell, the veteran director of Women in Love, The Devils and Tommy, has died at the age of 84

Ken Russell: a career in photos

Ken Russell, the director behind the Oscar-winning Women in Love has died aged 84. Russell died on Sunday in his sleep, according to his friend, the arts writer Norman Lebrecht.

Known for a flamboyant style developed during his early career in television, Russell's films mixed high and low culture with rare deftness and often courted high controversy. The Devils … a religious drama that featured an infamous scene between Oliver Reed and Venessa Redgrave sexualising the crucifixion – was initially rejected by Warner Brothers. It will be released in its entirety in March next year, 42 years after it was made, when it will form part of the British Board of Film Classification's centenary celebrations.

Women in Love, released in 1969, became notorious for its nude male wrestling scene »

DC Comics February 2012 Solicitations

14 November 2011 2:00 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

We hold in our hands the covers for DC Comics this February. As a child of four can plainly see, these comics have been hermetically sealed in a Cgc 9.9 slab, and they’ve been kept in a #2 mayonnaise jar under a giant stack of returned copies of Holy Terror since noon today.

What do we have worth noting? The new look of Darkseid, and we’re far enough into the new 52 books that it’s time for Batman to start crossing over in all of them. Plus Mara Jade, the red-haired assassin who fell in love with her blond-haired man she was sent to kill– oh, I’m sorry, that’s from Star Wars. This is Mera in a jade outfit. Our mistake.

Shall we? Surely!

As usual, spoilers may lurk beyond this point.

All of Allison’s commentaries in one convenient place!

2011 has been the biggest year yet for our little internet spaceship of cinematic love and we’re growing everyday. Part of that is always trying to get you guys (or guy; how many of you are out there?) something new, something different, something interesting and something that’s going to continue to foster the love and admiration we have for the cinema, however you want to cut that particular pie.
