The Thing #13 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko The Thing v1 #13, 1954 - Steve Ditko begins this issue with a colorfully nightmarish cover. The large faces are garish in design, resembling ancient Venetian holiday masks. Note how even the foreground candle adds a grotesque touch. All three Ditko stories are roughly equal in quality. Figures and faces are expressive and in some cases exaggerated for shock effect.

‘Bathtubs Over Broadway’ Trailer: Discovering the Hidden World of Sponsored Musicals

You may remember those bits on the Late Show With David Letterman, in which the host introduced obscure vinyl records for laughs in a recurring segment called “Dave’s Record Collection.” That segment actually stemmed from an hobby held by Late Show writer Steve Young, who in the mid-nineties became obsessed with the hidden world of industrial musicals, curating a vast collection of sponsored musicals that hawked everything from cars, to cereal, to — yes — bathtubs. Now his obsession becomes a f...

‘I’m Not Here’ Trailer: J.K. Simmons and Sebastian Stan Are One and the Same

I’m Not Here, not to be confused with I’m Not There, I’m Still Here or You Were Never Really Here, tells the tale of a man facing his past to make sense of his present. J.K. Simmons plays that man in the present day, while Sebastian Stan plays the same character as a younger man, and the I’m Not Here trailer below offers a somewhat vague look at the eras of those two actors colliding. I’m Not Here Trailer This is a very curious trailer. There’s barely any dialogue, which makes the story...

‘Bad Times at the El Royale’ Clip: Have a Good Time Watching a Full 10 Minutes of the Thriller

Bad Times at the El Royale opened in theaters this fall to muted reception. The film had everything going for it: a star-studded cast including Jeff Bridges, Chris Hemsworth, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, and Cynthia Erivo, a rising director following up his acclaimed debut feature, a seedy neo-noir thriller premise. But audiences didn’t check in for Drew Goddard‘s Bad Times at the El Royale. Now, before we could finish unpacking why this movie fizzled, Bad Times at the El Royale is making its way ...

Book Love

I wasn’t familiar with the work of Debbie Tung until I read and enjoyed Quiet Girl in a Noisy World: An Introvert’s Story. Next week she has a followup coming out. Book Love is what it sounds like, a collection of cartoons for those who love reading. The single-page strips aren’t particularly punchline-driven — the appeal comes from the familiarity. Anyone whose favorite activity is enjoying a good book or anyone who always has trouble figuring out what book to [...]

Alternate Histories: The Two Film Adaptations of ‘Lord of the Rings’ on Their 40th and 15th Anniversaries

2018 is a major anniversary for The Lord of the Rings on screen. It’s been 40 years since the release of Ralph Bakshi’s animated version, and 15 years since the completion of Peter Jackson’s live-action trilogy. This dual anniversary – in addition to an imminent new adaptation on Amazon – makes for a fine opportunity to look at the two versions that exist so far. How do they differ? How do they align? Looking back at both from a distance, the answers surprised even me. A Halfling Half-Mo...
