Enter to win

The giveaway is valid for Goodreads users in the US and Canada only (sorry). See the Goodreads giveaway page for more details.

Also, if you’re in the Chicago area, please be sure to come to the Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show book release party at Third Coast Comics on September 18th, from 4pm – 7pm. I’ll be selling and signing copies of the book (a full four days before they’re officially on sale!), and fun will be had by all.

Afterwards, at 7pm, there will be the monthly meeting of the Chicago Comic Book Meetup group, and I’ll be a special guest, so you can hear me ramble incoherently about my comics.

P.S. Thursday’s strip is running late, but rather than crap something out at the last minute, I’d rather just take my time and do it right. Sorry!

Review: Yasujiro Ozu, Part Two (The Story of Floating Weeds and Early Summer)

Yasujiro Ozu’s oeuvre continues to grace screens at the Gene Siskel Film Center for the next few weeks. Among the upcoming films are The Story of Floating Weeds and Early Summer, which are also available in terrific Criterion Collection releases. Other upcoming highlights include Late Autumn (starring Ozu mainstay Setsuko Hara) and An Autumn Afternoon, Ozu’s final film.
