In response to the April 27 story “Fame monster” carried over from
KFOR-TV to Chicken-Fried News. I would like to raise an issue with the
manner in which the story was reported, and the greater ignored issue.
There’s another comic-book movie out now beside ‘The Avengers.’
Documentary Rod Lott
I grew up reading comic books — and today, occasionally make some extra
dough writing for them — but I must admit, I’ve never heard of Rock ’n’ Roll Comics,
the underground sensation at the heart of this lo-fi documentary from
Wild Eye Releasing. Turns out, not knowing matters not; hardcore comics
fans — or those just into esoteric, DIY projects — should find it
interesting, if told with a little true-to-spirit sloppiness.
Horror Rod Lott
I remember vividly when I first read "Casting the Runes," one of several
suspense classics to pour from the pen of M.R. James, the master of the
ghost story whose supernatural bent became a huge influence on H.P.
Lovecraft. Just because the short story is old (1911) doesn't mean it
wasn't chilling to read, and so it is with this 1979 presentation, an episode of the UK's ITV Playhouse anthology series.
