‘What I Did': Guilt and the Anthropomorphic Simplicity of Jason [Review]


It seems hard to overestimate the affection Norwegian cartoonist Jason (one name only) creates in comics fans of many stripes. When I worked in a comic book store full of Fantagraphobics, the one book from the House of Groth I can remember being recommended by a spandex-loving co-worker was Jason's Hey, Wait...

Paul Chadwick Reveals New ‘Concrete’ Series, Harlan Ellison Sci-Fi Comic Near Completion


Creation and Creator, both hard at work. Concrete in the fields, left. Chadwick in the studio, right.

Paul Chadwick's Concrete debuted in 1986 in Dark Horse Presents #1, and quickly became a touchstone work in what might be called the "alternative mainstream" of comics, the non-superhero comics from publishers like Dark Horse and Comico that sought to emulate the aesthetic strengths of superhero comics while expanding their focus to other genres of stories...

Nick Cave to Write New ‘Crow’ Movie, Improving Its Improbable Chances of Rocking


Up until now, you could be forgiven if you were unaware that director Stephen Norrington has been planning a new film version of James O'Barr's 1988 comic "The Crow," because up until now there has been no good reason to care at all about a new film version of "The Crow," which was first adapted semi-interestingly to film in 1994 by director Alex Proyas, and then flogged to death over a series of three sequels, one TV series, and an endless amount of Hot Topic merchandise...
