Review from SFRevu

I always like Sam Tomaino's reviews of Flash Fiction Online, and he's done it again for March. He also reviews other short SF/F fiction, so be sure to check him out. Thanks, Sam!

While you're there, check out the SFRevu take on Graphic Classic Volume 6, which features "Bitter Bierce". We've featured Ambrose Bierce once here (John Mortonson's Funeral) and will do it again -- he has an incredible, dark, rich sense of humor. The Graphic Classic volume provides new takes on his work, illustrated settings of his stories, and excerpts from The Devil's Dictionary. That by itself makes it worth the read.

There's more great stuff over there, of course. Check them out.

Comic Books Driving Hollywood?

Are comic books now the way for writers to crack open Hollywood's walled garden? This Wired Magazine blog says that comic-based movies saved Hollywood this summer. The article previews some the upcoming movies. However, for a comprehensive list of upcoming films, the Den of Geek is the place to go. They suggest that comic books, rather than speculative scripts is the way to a movie option. Their list is a compelling argument. Um, I've never been much of a comic book fan, but I might see (will see) Sherlock Holmes (2009) and yeah, The Avengers (2011). If it's in a theater near me, then Wonder Woman.

Wikipedia has a list of past comic-based films in the English language. (I checked there hoping hoping hoping that Nancy was not in the list. It wasn't.) If you want a worst-to-best list with nice graphics, then visit Rotten Tomatoes, but you'll have to click till it hurts to see them all.
