Vintage shojo magazine cover. I’m coveting her dress…
Here’s the cover for the Kickstarter edition of Osamu Tezuka’s The Crater. I can’t help but feel it needs something: a slash of color? A more evocative image? Some bold accessories? Still, I’m glad to see this book has a ship date (June 4th) after months of delays—The Crater has been on my wish list for ages.
With the arrival of Astro Boy flying beyond the sky, the time shifted from cartoon theatrical films to TV animation.
One-Star Book Reviews
One-Star Book Reviews is my newest Tumblr obsession, a compendium of cheeky, dumb, and WTF?! assessments of classic lit. It’s hard to pick a favorite review: there’s the reader who found the language in Something Wicked This Way Comes “too rich and poetic for my liking,” and the critic who reported, with dismay, that there were “No swordfights, no prince and princess, no happy ending” in The Picture of Dorian Gray. I’m totally with the dude who panned Heidigger, though; that would be on my list of one-star books!
