Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shika Nai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shiteshimatta Episode 9 Impression

On this episode, Anne reveals her point of view on Katarina. Meanwhile, Katarina continues to enjoy hanging out with her friends. So I really liked how Anne reveals her point of view on Katarina and even points out how dense she is. Also, it was interesting to see some of the maid's past. Other than that, seeing Katarina herself hanging out with her friends is nice as usual. But, there's a shocking scene after the credits which didn't quite make any sense for me yet. Now what's going to happen n...

House of Mystery #241 - Nestor Redondo art

House of Mystery v1 #241, 1976 - A puppeteer comes up with a profitable scheme involving three midgets. In this Nestor Redondo tale, panels seem crowded and poorly planned. Page five, panel two suffers from poor figure drawing proportions. The inking is atypical for Redondo, leading me to wonder if some of the work was done by studio assistants.

Unknown Worlds of Science Fiction special #1 - Don Newton cover, Alex Nino art

Don Newton Unknown Worlds of Science Fiction v1 special #1, 1976 - In the distant future, Donald Clayborne hires a company to help him recreate a painful event from his past. Alex Nino illustrates this tale of artificial redemption with sometimes jarring complexity. Both his scenes of advanced technologies and primeval jungles are visually rich, despite being printed in black and white. Don [Author: Ted Ignacio]

Director Ani Acopian breaks down her drone-shot video, ’A World Artists Love’

“A drone is a camera,” Ani Acopian begins simply. “And it can fly. It’s basically a flying super-camera! I’d love to see more film and TV productions embrace the nimble and magical nature of drones and use them for more than bird’s eye view establishing shots.” The director’s video for London-based record label AWAL (Artists Without a Label) unfolds like a minute-long homage to the narrative potential of UAVs. It lifts off from a desk, flies out a sliding-glass window, up over the room, down ...

Original Content podcast: ‘The Lovebirds’ has charming leads and not much else

“The Lovebirds” was originally slated for a theatrical release, but with movie theaters closed, Paramount decided to release the film through Netflix instead. But even without a global pandemic, a Netflix release was probably the right call. As we discuss latest episode of the Original Content podcast, this doesn’t feel like a movie that would have done well in theaters. It is, to be clear, a funny and watchable, thanks in large part to the charming performances of Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Ra...

DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest #14 / U.F.O. Invaders - Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest v1 #14 / U.F.O. Invaders, 1981 - Joe Kubert nicely captures the pandemonium of an alien invasion with his chaotic cover. His loosely rendered style perfectly fits the scenario. Still, the illustration falls just short of his usual standards. Most of the interior stories first appeared in various DC sci-fi titles, many from the 1960s. Other artists in [Author: Ted Ignacio]
