Katie O’Neill’s latest project has the charm of her previous Aquicorn Cove and The Tea Dragon Society, but in an abbreviated form for younger readers. Dewdrop is an axolotl, or a cute pink lump, who has a number of aquatic friends, including a turtle, a newt, and some fish. It’s time for the sports festival, and Dewdrop’s friends are competing, writing songs, and cooking.

Irene Adler Gets a Comic

Irene Adler, the only woman to outwit Sherlock Holmes, appeared in one 1891 story, “A Scandal in Bohemia”. She’s been a favorite ever since, particularly with people who want to pair Holmes up romantically in a traditional fashion. Now, Titan Comics is taking a different direction with the character. Adler will be a five-issue miniseries starting in February 2020 in which she’s an action hero, teaming up with “famous Victorian heroines from science, history, and literature… such as Jane Eyre, [....

DC Forgets Key Info in New Series Promotion

DC is promoting the start of a new title, Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey, which launches February 12. (It’s a four-issue miniseries.) They’ve given it the cover of their ordering catalog, as shown here, as well as a short interview with writer/artist Amanda Conner and co-writer Jimmy Palmiotti inside. It sounds interesting, and it’s well-timed, with a movie coming and a new animated series on the DC Universe streaming service. However, as a potential new(ish) reader, I found [...]

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Is Not As Bad As They Say

Quentin Tarantino‘s Hateful Five was a pretty gruesome movie. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is far from that. Not only it displays some of the hottest stars in Hollywood right now, but it is assorted with a few of Tarantino’s former stars cameos, the oldest of all being Michael Madsen. I read at least […] The post Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Is Not As Bad As They Say appeared first on Rodolfo Grimaldi Blog.

Tasting Notes

Just some quick hits on my media diet of late... Television Watchmen - I was skeptical; who was really hankering for a sequel to the Watchmen graphic novel? I may be biased because of my general distaste for sequels, but I gave the series a shot, and it's steadily been chipping away at all my reservations about the show. It hits a lot of "prestige TV" notes and starts off by just dropping you into a world that isn't quite familiar (even if you've read the comic book). A lot of it still feels ...

All Action With a Sedate Cover and a Credit Change

While flipping through the latest Diamond Previews catalog to see what comics will be coming out next year, I noticed something strange in the Sterling Publishing listings. The first thing that caught my eye was the contrast of titling a comic All Action Classics: Tom Sawyer and then putting this incredibly relaxed cover on it: I know it’s one of the most famous incidents from the Mark Twain novel, but visually, it’s the opposite of “all action”. Then I got [...]
