The Monday Briefing -- Just a few random notes today...If you like Scott Pilgrim, definitely check out Solanin from Viz. It's more realistic (so far -- I'm three chapters in), but concerns many of the same themes, and the art is gorgeous.

If you like Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven, but have always felt it needed more elderly Wolverine and blind Hawkeye, definitely check out "Old Man Logan" by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, currently running in Wolverine. I read the first three issues over the weekend and found it readable, but totally in debt to Eastwood.

Speaking of which, his new movie Gran Torino is a fantastic summation of his entire movie-making career, with lots of laughs and genuine drama mixing to create a very enjoyable film.

I agree, great film. I'm hoping it is in fact Eastwood's last acting role since it certainly played as a grand finale of his "cranky old bastard" character.

Other movies out right now that I recommend: Milk and Doubt. I saw 'em both in the past couple weeks and was thoroughly impressed. If there is any justice, both will get Oscar best picture nominations for exploring such sensitive issues as gay rights and the Catholic priest scandal. Milk comes off stronger considering the times we're going through as a society, but Doubt was slightly stronger as an overall film.
