The Art Of Frozen by Charles Solomon  (book review)

Despite the film ‘Frozen’ coming out in 2013, I only saw it on TV last Yuletide, mostly turned away by all the hype surrounding it, not to mention me thinking I probably wasn’t the target audience.

The Blacker The Ink: Construction Of Black Identity In Comics And Sequential Art edited by Frances Gateward and John Jennings  (book review)

So many of the books I enjoy most find their way into my hands by means other than me deciding to buy a copy. In fact, this has happened often enough that when I got a note from writer friend Douglas Smith asking if I’d like to read his friend Charles de Lint’s newest book, […]
