OMG, multiple links!

1. I did my first proper comic review for the new Comics Journal, in re Weapons of the Metabaron, a somewhat notorious Alejandro Jodorowsky joint drawn in part by Travis Charest; hopefully other shorter reviews will be forthcoming.

2. Also at TCJ, my weekly column continues apace, with a few words about German artist Matthias Schultheiss' Propellerman, an odd example of a (literally) foreign talent leaping into the superhero pool at the height of the Image comics revolution of the early '90s, and meeting the aesthetic on its own level.

3. Meanwhile, the movie review column at the Factual Opinion has emerged from its winter hibernation with many good things from Mr. Tucker Stone, plus my thoughts on Black Swan and Film Socialisme.

More to come soon...?!


In retrospect, getting the dude from Weezer to work viral publicity was an inspired move.

IT'S ALL TRUE: Comics Comics has been retired, and The Comics Journal has been revised. This will take you to the new homebase for THIS WEEK IN COMICS!, which will update every Tuesday at 8:00 AM, EST. Lots of other stuff up at the site already, so poke around...
