Cinevent 45 Pics

Pianist Dave Drazin, left.

The projectionists do an excellent job all weekend keeping the films running.

All silent films are accompanied by improvisations by Dave Drazin and Phil Carli on this beautiful piano.

The poster auction is always worth checking out.

 Pianist Phil Carli.


A rare sight in the screening room - empty chairs.

Preparing the piano.

A huge room of original posters to be auctioned.

Francesco Francavilla on Swamp Thing

I'm loving this Francavilla art on Swamp Thing. As usual, Francavilla inks and colors his own pencils here. He's one of the best artists working in the industry.

Pics from the Panels In Pink Reception Night at Wild Goose Creative

The Panels in Pink exhibit reception at Wild Goose Creative had a great turnout, an awesome food spread (thanks largely or totally to organizer Canada Keck) and featured creative work by too many female comics creators to list here. Among them: Canada, Suzanne Baumann, Jennifer Smither, Lora Innes, Katie Valeska and Molly Durst. (If you're reading this and had work in the show, contact me and I'll add your name to the list.)

Recently Read: Mockingjay

I don't agree with the Hunger Games readers who hate on this book. 

Mockingjay is much more interesting and satisfying than Catching Fire, the second book in the trilogy, which inexplicably and boringly became a replay of The Hunger Games.

Instead of heading back to the arena again, Mockingjay instead does what the second book should have done: take the story to its logical conclusion and into the cultural revolution we've been wanting to see from the beginning.

There are things to complain about: the constant and needless comparisons of the pod weapons in the Capitol city to the Hunger Games arena; a "surprise" ending at the climax that was telegraphed long before; and an ending that feels like it was written in a sloppy rush.

There are good, unexpected, things here, too, though, such as the haze Katniss is in that subtly carries over from the last action scenes to the epilogue; so life-transforming are the events in the raid on the Capitol that the Katniss we knew from the story thus far is gone for good fifty pages before the book is over.

Some readers hate the epilogue, claiming it's a downer. Spoiler Warning: Katniss is alive, as well as can be expected and free to live out the rest of her life as she sees fit with her new-found family. Collins killing all the main characters in battle - that would have been a downer.
