Friday May 13, 7 p.m., the talkers in Framing Pictures will re-convene for a conversation at Scarecrow Video. Join us for a freewheeling conversation about movies old and new, and what you’d like to talk about. Check the FP Facebook page for updates.
Say, do you like movies? Do you like Venice? Do you like me? Perhaps you’ll be inclined to join a Smithsonian Journeys tour to the Venice Film Festival this year. I will be the resident SJ Expert for a week in Venice; read more details here.
This is out: My book on the 1931 Frankenstein, from Columbia University Press. One place to get it is here.
Out now: the first two volumes of Rotten, a wild, provocative, and gory graphic novel I have co-authored with Mark Rahner (art by Dan Dougherty). It’s a zombie Western set in 1877, with overtones of recent U.S. political history. Or possibly undertones. Click on my Rotten tab above for further info and marching orders. Order the Rotten trade paperbacks at the Rotten website and see cover art here. The Rotten page at Moonstone, where you can also order the Rotten book The Lost Diary of John J. Flynn, U.S. Agent, is here. Check the Rotten music video here.
