30 Days of Night (2007 movie)
Creepy, eerie, scary and dark, this movie was surprisingly different from most Vampire movies; there are still sharp teeth involved and loss of blood but also many more heart stopping intense moments …

Batman: The Killing Joke
Blurbs on a cover always tell you that whatever book you're holding in your hands is better than the best, that you'd probably die if you'd put it back to where it came from, and more of that kind of …

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume One
Great literary characters have a tendency to outlive their mortal creators, by finding second and third lives in cultures far removed from those which created them. Here, in the first volume of a collection …

30 Days of Night (2007 movie)
Another vampire movie, yes. But, a damn good one. The sun will not come out for 30 days in the town of Barrow, Alaska. The residents are trapped as a hoarde of vampires makes their way in. They have nowhere …

Special Edition DVD (front)
Visually impressive, this film captures the comic book elements of its source brilliantly. But as a tale of the Spartan stand against the Persians it is woefully unhistoric and overwrought. The Spartans …

Moon Knight Vol. 2: Midnight Sun (v. 2)
In Midnight Sun, Charlie Huston continues his reinvention of Marc Spector, a.k.a. Moon Knight, as a broken, hateful, possibly insane and largely ineffectual hero.     With his ex-girlfriend …

Stardust (Widescreen Edition) (2007)
I picked up this DVD not expecting much, having not heard anything about it. I was pleasantly surprised and entertained throughout! Some of the comedy of the film seemed to be right out of Monty Python.    …

Stardust (Widescreen Edition) (2007)
Films that depend heavily on special effects as created by computer generated graphics have never been too interesting for this viewer - and that, of late, covers a lot of territory from the Harry Potter …

Superman: Doomsday
I've long been a fan of the animated DC universe. Batman - The Animated Series, Volume One (DC Comics Classic Collection) was an amazingly well-done show, following on the heels of Batman (Two-Disc Special …

Ghost World (2001)
I finally saw Ghost World a couple years ago and it was one of the best things I've done for myself. Buying it on dvd shortly thereafter, I've been in love with it ever since. This and Bob Brozman's Live …

Spectacular achievement in "capturing" the essence of the graphic novel in cinematography! Juggling stillness and motion! Encasing little vignettes of human beings - the very understated meeting between …

Stardust (Widescreen Edition) (2007)
The story begins in the 19th-century village of Wall. But Wall isn't your average country village -- it guards a low, stony wall between mundane England and the fantasy kingdom of Stormhold. No one crosses …

Throughout the mid-1980's, I always made it a point to get home from school as quickly as possible to watch channel 11, KSTW, as they showed Transformers - First Season Collector's Edition. It was one …

No wonder Michael Bay's `Transformers' is destined to be one of the biggest box office smashes of 2007. Looking at the commercial previews of the movie, I was not impressed. Watching digitally enhanced …

"Transformers" may be the most audience dividing movie I've seen this year. It has as many things going for it as it does against it, and debating the pros and cons of the film could make any sane person …

Some say this is nothing new. I don't know what they are talking about.   The art is awesome - look at the images I put in.   Some panels are like dark movie stills, showing the angst …
reviewed Moon Knight Vol. 1: The Bottom (Book .... September 02, 2007
After a few years on Marvel's back shelf, Moon Knight is back -- without any of the things that made him cool. Charlie Huston, a best-selling novelist but comic-book novice, has apparently decided that …
