    Yes, but depending on the biding—sewn or glued—you may end up having to trim the binding side a little. I'm not sure a binder couldn't guarantee that you wouldn't lose some image in the final...

    If you're reading paperbacks with that many pages, you're probably also dealing with lower quality paper stock, which means you're also going to want to keep them out of direct sunlight. Light can...

    Yeah, I gotta say, I don't think I'd recommend Secret Wars as a starting place. The commitment's huge and, as with any "event", the shake-out is extremely uncertain, both in terms of plot and...

    So, if you're looking for digitally printed graphics on slick, glossy stock, you're restricted more or less to the last 15 or so years to reliably expect them to look that way in person, though some...

    Like any publisher, it's going to have hits and misses and a lot of strong (but less exceptional) stuff in between, but I have to say Image's batting average is well above any domestic comics...

    I had exactly the same experience when I started reading comics a few years ago. I think I caught the front, more or less, of the current Image Comics creative boom—for reference, I started reading...

    Doesn't bother me at all. Without title (Mr., Ms., Dr., etc) it is either extremely informal or extremely impersonal, either someone you know well and consider a friend or someone you hardly know at...

    Hmm..."interpenetration"? ;)

    I'm with Ramsay Snow on this one. Twelve Monkeys was a mildly clever, Gilliam-twisted post-apocalyptic drama until the closing scenes. But to a certain extent, it's...

    Yours is a very sensible take on the whole idea. I didn't mean to suggest that writers attempt to recreate these characters from a vacuum, exclusively incorporating only the broadest character...

    That probably belongs to a different category of endings that made the movie, i.e., movies that would have been bad, boring or just forgettable without an ending that elevates the whole thing. In an...

    In a career of masterpieces and many films that fall just short, The Departed might very well be my favorite Scorsese movie. Acknowledging that it was already based on a very strong movie, it was...

    Blow-Up is so good! It's a strange, hypnotic ending to a surreal story that (for a while, at least) tricks you into thinking the murder in the park might be what the movie is about.

    It's not entirely terrible, but it certainly is disappointing. I was loving Edgar Wright's The World's End until the apocalypse. The whole movie nailed everything up to the departure of the aliens....

    I've always found the Alien "series" to be a highly useful litmus test to just about everyone's action movie tastes. I use quotation marks precisely because there is minimal continuity of creative...
