Free Comic Book Eve update

Tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day, so I wrote a Creative Loafing cover story (my first in a while) on the event and the Atlanta Comic Book Scene. First there's an overview piece on Atlanta comics; a Q&A with an illustrator and a colorist at Gaijin Studios; a piece on SCAD-Atlanta's sequential arts program; a run-down of some of this year's potentially good giveaway titles; and suggestions for graphic novels you can BUY on Free Comic Book Day (including neat new stuff by Peter Bagge and Daniel Clowes). If anyone wants to add suggestions to that last one, feel free.

I haven't linked to my stories in like forever, but here's some recent ones. My favorite film of 2010 so far is the documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop (the possibility that aspects of it might be a hoax only enhances its themes). The worst film I've seen in 2010 is Furry Vengeance (it's even more terrible than you might guess). I recently reviewed Kick-Ass, The Secret of Kells, The Square, The Eclipse, a chilling documentary called Cropsey and wrote an extended piece that was nearly a cover story on comedy and The Atlanta Film Festival. (I also plan never to see The Human Centipede.)

Non-film related pieces include continuing episode reviews of HBO's "Treme," play reviews of His Eye is on the Sparrow, and Lookingglass Alice, a piece on Alcove Gallery's Lunchbox-themed show (fun!), an interview with playwright Topher Payne about writing about and playing Joan Crawford.

Have started reading Man Booker Prize-winner Wolf Hall. It'll be a race to finish it before it's due at the library.
