The 7th Dawn

Rather dull, but it has a monkey


Drama

Rod Lott
For a film that bills itself as a great adventure, "The 7th Dawn" is rather dull. This may be — must be — because it's made in 1964, before America realized it couldn't win every war (read: Vietnam).

Green Lantern: Emerald Knights

Seemingly made for Green Lantern enthusiasts


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Even if June 17’s big-screen “Green Lantern” disappoints the comic-book hero’s hardcore fans, at least they’ll have “Green Lantern: Emerald Knights” to hold in their hearts.

Action Comics #900 / Flashpoint #1 / Batman: Arkham City #1

What’s up with Superman, Batman and The Flash lately?


Comic Book

Rod Lott
Recently, when I overheard two Bubba types talking about how "left-wing nutty" and "un-American" that DC's oversized 900th issue of "Action Comics" was, I knew I had to check it out.

The Last Challenge / The Hanging Tree

Fairly nice shootin', Tex.


Western

Rod Lott
Two Westerns from the days when Hollywood relied on them pull into the DVD-R outpost from Warner Archive. Neither is essential, but its wide landscapes and reliable tropes make for comfortable-enough watching.

The art knight rises

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s the Istvan Gallery’s latest exhibition celebrating comic books!


Visual Arts

Louis Fowler
Hot on the well-pixelated heels of its last exhibition, the video game-themed Art of Bits/Bits of Art, the Istvan Gallery once again finds itself in geeky territory with its latest art show, The Art of the Comic Book. For gallery owner and curator Stephen Kovash, who learned to draw from comic books, it’s a chance to give Oklahoma City a new perspective on what has long been considered low-brow art by outsiders.
