Corpus Delicti by Serge Birault (book review).

I can’t really recall how I came across Serge Birault but googled his art, jaw dropped, saw he had a book out there and ordered one up. It’s also a bilingual book with text in French and English. Birault looks like he turned all of his sketches into paintings on PhotoShop or at least enhanced […]

The Spirit: An 80th Anniversary Celebration by Will Eisner (graphic novel review).

The hype I saw for this book, ‘The Spirit: An 80th Anniversary Celebration’ is a bit misleading or I was reading it wrong because I thought it was actually other people doing their interpretations of Will Eisner’s famous character, the Spirit.

However, it was also entangled with certain access points related to your ability to program and some other codes.
