After reading Snowpiercer 1: The Escape, I said to myself, alright, for a French comic, this is not bad. I enjoyed the post-apocalyptic tale and I was eagerly awaiting the second volume, hoping this would answer the many questions I had at the end of The Escape. The original creator Jacques Lob passed away in 1990, and during that time Benjamin Legrand took on the reigns of writing the second chapter, while Jean-Marc Rochette returns handling the art on Snowpiercer 2: The Explorers.

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier just weeks from release, it’s been generating favorable reviews and this is the cast interview in London. If you have 27 minutes of free time, then you should watch this. Press conferences are usually boring with the press asking some dumb questions, but this London Press Conference actually had some great questions, neat tidbits from the cast, some insights on the Winter Soldier film, laughs and the Russo’s thoughts on Captain America 3 tackling Batman/Superman in 2016.

From traveling around the globe, the idea of “Food Maps” became a neat art project by Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves. Foods that were presented a country or continent were shaped into a map. Pretty cool!
A long time ago, I remember watching Pixar’s Toy Story in the theater and I was blown away by the CG animation and storytelling. Over the years, many animation houses were looking to do the same and one is Blue Sky Studios (Epic, Ice Age). The CG animated film Rio was a 2011 hit and surpassed the $400 million mark in box-office receipts, so obviously there is a sequel with Rio 2 arriving into US multiplexes on April 11, 2014. Along the way, Titan Books has just released: The Art of Rio – Featuring a Carnival of Art from Rio and Rio 2.
My geeky comic book advisers have been telling to read this indie sci-fi mystery comic book series The Absence. The Absence has been making the rounds in the UK and getting top-notch reviews, so when Titan Comics asked me if I wanted to check out The Absence by Martin Stiff, I just had to get in a review copy and see all what the fuss is about. Martin Stiff is both the author and artist of the The Absence and self-published the comic book from 2008 to 2013. The 6 issues are now collected in this hardbound trade by Titan Comics.
