Comixtribe’s And Then Emily Was Gone trade paperback!
Here’s an excerpt from our review,
Iain Laurie’s art is so tight with Lees’ storyline, you’d swear they wrote this book sitting side by side. His artwork is a nightmare stretching across pages, both surreal and horrible, with promises of terrible things in your closet, under your bed, whispering awful truths in your ear.
So naturally, I loved the book. It’s a story that isn’t meant for one read, then bagged and boarded for posterity. You will want to pull this out again, read issues backward, trying to reverse engineer the story in your own mind, and see if it’s any less unsettling (it’s not). You’ll want your friends to read this, and talk with you about it, and see if it gets the chill out of your bones (nope). – And Then Emily Was Gone Concludes, Send Your Therapy Bills to ComixTribe 12/08/15

How about a movie review? We have those as too! Jim Kenney has been bringing us reviews of off-beat and must see films for quite some time.
BEHIND EVERY MAN IS A WOMAN WHO IS JUST AS FUNNY: Luis Guzman stars in PUERTO RICANS IN PARIS
Tying with ANOTHER 48. HRS in the most-prosaic-film-title category,PUERTO RICANS IN PARIS is about just what it says it is about. Wonderful character actor Luis Guzman is given a lead, and why the hell not? He teams with Edgar Garcia as NYC cops who end up nonsensically involved in an attempt to ferret out an insider who is blackmailing the French designer of a high-end bag, winningly played by an endearing Alice Taglioni. The frivolous film is agreeable enough, barely at 80 minutes without its extended ending credits, more latter-day Abbot and Costello – continue reading
