Something to get animated about


Chocolates. Give her chocolates. And if you want more sound Valentines advice from the men who know then this weeks Comic Cast is for you! We review Chris Ware’s Acme Novelty Library #19, his DVD/book collaboration with Ira Glass on Lost Buildings, Gerward Way’s The Umbrella Academy, Peepshow: the comic diary of Joe Matt, Tim Lane’s Abandoned Cars and Jim Kreuger’s Earth X. And to celebrate the release of Tomm Moore’s animated film The Secret of Kells (interview in 2 weeks) we discuss some of our favourite animated films from the likes of studio giants Disney and Ghibli as well as reviewing The Powerpuff Girls 10th Anniversary Box-Set. And all because the lady loves . . . comics.
