Each of Christopher Nolan's Batman films opens with a quiet, singular image forming the unmistakeable bat symbol. They're cinematic palate cleansers before the business of Batman begins in earnest. In Batman Begins, it is a sky full of bats; in The Dark Knight, it is a wall of flames; but the opening image of The Dark Knight Rises is notable for two reasons: the bat symbol appearing from cracking ice is muddy, only there if you look for it, and it is overlaid with the film's opening lines of dialogue...

Trickster 2: The Little San Diego Con That Could [Indiegogo]

untitled-2-1339777204

If you've never been to San Diego's Comic-Con International, it's hard to picture just how huge and insane it truly is. Last year's attendance numbers topped out around 120,000 people, turning the little town that Ron Burgundy made famous into a nightmarish maelstrom of Twilight shantytowns, promotional blitzes and a decibel level akin to a black metal concert...

untitled-1-1337367728

Book titles are a tricky business. Trying to sum up the essence of your work in a few simple words that intrigue and encapsulate can often be the hardest part of creating something original.
