If you want to get in the spirit of Harlan Ellison’s latest releases you ought to pay for them with pictures of Presidents. As, of course, you’ll want to do after reading these reviews:
Paul Anderson rates 7 Against Chaos, the new graphic story written by Harlan Ellison with art by Paul Chadwick and Ken Steacy, 4.5 skulls out of 5:
Together, Ellison, Chadwick, and Steacy create an epic story that feels both progressive but also a callback to any fan who started reading comics prior to the 1990s, when computers helped shape the look and feel of books. But, in spite of this, it is not a homage to those comics, nor “retro”.
Clay Stafford reviews the Subterranean Press reissue of Harlan Ellison’s The Deadly Streets, first published in 1958.
[The] writing, the characters, the plotting, and the situations still hold true. The “daddy-o’s” didn’t bother me a bit and the prose goes down like a teenager in a log flume.
Judge Darryl Loomis at DVD Verdict approves the Blu-Ray of A Boy and His Dog:
It may not be the best piece of science fiction ever made, but A Boy and His Dog is one of the best genre adaptations out there. It has its problems and, for a time, seems like two different movies, but its humor and cynicism make up for any missteps. It’s a great time, one of my favorites of the genre, and it finally, after all these years, gets a proper home video release.
