Ed Catto: The Cutie & the Indefatigable Entrepreneur

I’ve listened to many podcasts during the long upstate winter and one of my favorites has been Karina Longworth’s You Must Remember This. It’s billed as a storytelling podcast exploring the secret and/or forgotten histories of Hollywood’s first century. I enjoy it because Longworth spins great yarns, with vivid insights, about Hollywood stars and their careers.

But I think there’s more to why it’s popular and why I enjoy it so much. I’m starting to realize that the inevitable ups and downs of yesteryear’s Hollywood Stars are analogous to the rollercoaster rides that categorize so many of today’s careers.

It’s astounding to hear about how a legendary star’s career might have floundered at one point, only to do a complete 360 as he or she gets cast in a successful blockbuster movie. Thundering successes and crushing failures become the

‘Unknowns’ Documentary Gets Memorial Day Release

‘Unknowns’ Documentary Gets Memorial Day Release
Producers of the documentary “The Unknowns” have set a Memorial Day launch through the Gathr on-demand theatrical releasing operation, Variety has learned exclusively.

The Unknowns” follows the training of the Sentinels at the Tomb of the Unknowns monument dedicated to American service members who have died without their remains being identified. A single unidentified U.S. serviceman who died in France during World War I was interred at the monument in 1921 in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

The film was produced by U.S. Army veterans Ethan Morse and Neal Schrodetzki — both who served as Sentinels — along with Matthew Little. Mark Joseph (“Max Rose”) is the executive producer.

Because of the two veterans’ experience of serving at the Tomb, they were given an “unprecedented” level of access from the Us Army, allowing them to bring a unique perspective to the rigorous and intricate training process that soldiers must endure to be stationed there.

Comic Book Review – Johnny Red #1

Anghus Houvouras reviews Johnny Red #1…

Legendary British fighter ace, Johnny ‘Red’ Redburn, returns once more as the commander of the Falcons – a Russian fighter squadron battling the Nazis in the skies over Stalingrad. But dogfighting Messerschmitts is about to become the least of his troubles when the Nvkd – the notorious Soviet secret police – come calling!

Back in the day, I was all about combat comics. ‘The day’ was the 1970’s when there seemed to be an endless supply of war themed four-color heroics at your local comic book shop. Comics like Weird War Tales, GI Combat, Unknown Soldier, and Enemy Ace were always in my buy pile. Epic stories, most of which took place during the first or second world war with a very defined line between good and evil. I can recall with great clarity those eye-popping panels from Joe Kubert, who truly excelled in the combat comic genre.

Mike Gold: Two For TwoMorrows

If I quit my day job, I just might possibly keep up with the output from TwoMorrows Publishing. Sundry regularly published magazines (Alter-Ego, Back Issue, Draw!, etc.), trade paperback and hardcover profiles of significant creators, publishing lines, eras and events – I can’t begin to list them all here. Well, I could, but they do a better job on their own website.

Did I mention they do everything up in both hardcopy and digital? Well, they do, and they’ve made many an otherwise tedious commute into Manhattan a lot more palatable.

I only get to bring to your attention a small fraction of their books. I’m still pissed that travel and work schedules didn’t allow me to review their Matt Baker: The Art of Glamour. So, to paraphrase the great Jack Kirby (and, yeah, they also publish The Jack Kirby Collector), just buy it.

But I
