Comics Korner: Get Jiro! Is A Fun Read With A Slightly Flat Aftertaste

Iconic chef, world traveler and all-around awesome human being Anthony Bourdain made his comic book debut with Get Jiro!, the new graphic novel he co-wrote with Joel Rose, featuring artwork by Langdon Foss. It’s a solid, if slightly unbalanced debut to one of his favorite mediums, packed with all the foodie politics and thinly-veiled hosility you’d expect from Bourdain.

The Dark Knight Rises (Jason’s Take)

Now that a good many fans have had the opportunity to catch The Dark Knight Rises, I feel compelled to give my two spoiler-heavy cents.

SDCC 2012- Warner Archive Panel

At the request of a friend, I attended the Warner Archive panel that was debuting the Shazam! Series on DVD. I make no bones about it: I went entirely to get a Shazam Lego for my friend. I was even brazen enough to ask the moderator what I had to do to get one. He would only say that it would be great to ask a good question at the end of the panel presentation. I sat down and what played before me was Chuck Norris: Karate Commandos. Still unsure of the hour that laid ahead of me, the folks at Warner Archive were introduced and my reluctance in attending became an appreciation for their work and a desire to rekindle my fondness of cartoons gone by.
