Beyond the Grave #5 - Steve Ditko art

Beyond the Grave #5Beyond the Grave v1 #5, 1976 - A gang of thugs rob a wealthy man in broad daylight, causing him to have a massive heart attack. An absence of thin lines makes the artwork seem particularly rough. The drawings within the panels are hastily laid out. And yet, Steve Ditko still manages to insert just enough detail, particularly in key scenes (see interior page below). Other [Author: Ted Ignacio]

HBO Max Won’t Be Losing a Bunch of Classic Cartoons at the End of April After All

When the list of titles for movies and TV shows coming to HBO Max in April arrived last month, it also included all the titles that would be leaving the service. At the time, that included some major classic cartoons such as The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Tom & Jerry, Scooby-Doo Where Are You!, and all the old Looney Tunes. But thankfully HBO Max will be holding on to them for a little while longer. HBO Max sent out a press release to confirm the following cartoons would not be leaving the lib...

Netflix’s Lead in the Streaming Wars is Shrinking as More Competitors Enter the Fray

You know that phenomenon when something becomes so widely used that it becomes the verb for that thing? Oh, let me Google that. Take this Kleenex. Throw that in the dumpster (yes, “Dumpster” used to be a brand). Netflix was well on its way to becoming that thing for streaming, with the cheeky “Netflix and chill” even becoming a commonly used phrase. But it may lose that chance with the influx of new streaming competitors like Disney+, HBO Max, and Peacock, and of course, its old competitors Hul...

The Cocktail Companion

This thorough “guide to cocktail history, culture, trivia, and favorite drinks”, as the subtitle has it, is comprehensive. It’s full of useful and interesting information — maybe too much. It’s a shame that the presentation isn’t as professional as the content. The Cocktail Companion by Cheryl Charming is laid out as though it was printed from web pages. It’s a larger-sized paperback, and it’s a chore to read. Given the page width, columns would have been preferred to the full-width [...]

‘One Hour Photo’ Director Mark Romanek Returns With Horror Movie ‘Mother Land’

Beyond a successful career in music videos, Mark Romanek directed three feature films: Static in 1985, One Hour Photo in 2002, and Never Let Me Go in 2010. But then, curiously enough, the feature film work from Romanek stopped coming. He’s continued to helm music videos and also directed an episode of the Amazon series Tales From the Loop last year, but Romanek’s movie work has been absent since 2010. Thankfully, that’s about the change, as the filmmaker is now attached to helm Mother Land, a h...
