Netflix's new Polar trailer features Mads Mikkelsen in his most badass role to date.
Earth Dream celebrates the environment without being preachy (mostly).
Though written with ages 9 -12 in mind, UK author S.F. Said's new graphic novel Phoenix has been one of my best reading experiences this year. A science fiction story with amazing and real characters, dramatic action, a fascinating mythology and incredible artwork by Dave McKean, I can't recommend this enough to any readers either with children of said age in their life, or for themselves.
Author SF Said talks about writing for young people, the wonders of stars, Pixar, Rio Bravo and space adventures in his new book Phoenix.
No, that's not a grammatical error: Code Monkey Save World is the upcoming comic by Greg Pak, inspired by Jonathan Coulton's songs. It's exactly as awesome as it sounds.

Written by Cullen Ben and Shawn Lee, with illustrations by Matt Kindt, The Tooth stands as a perfect example of why we NEED small publishers like Oni and Red 5 Comics. It is a wonderful story, but one which defies easy categorization and clearly flies in the face of what the Big Two/Three traditionally publish.
Heavily embedded in the culture and locations of Queen Street West, Snow, by Benjamin Rivers, is a very Toronto-centric indie graphic novel. It's the 30-something equivalent of Brian Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim saga, but with a more culturally relevant storyline and less manga-influenced art.
In the last few years, Paul Peterson and Jason Gilmore talked to four suicide survivors, about their experiences, the lead up and the aftermath. The compilation of these talks is called The Next Day, illustrated by acclaimed artist John Porcellino, accompanied by an interactive online component co-produced by the National Film Board of Canada. So even if you can’t talk to anyone else about it, I’m sure you may be comfortable reading it.
I thought I was going to go to bed before midnight tonight. I've been a bit busy and sleep-deprived for the past couple days; this makes me question my decision to sit and read Jeff Lemire's Essex County all in one sitting. I have no regrets: instead, I'm wondering why it's taken so long for me to get around to it.
