I usually go to Hub Comics, which is a cozy comic shop in Union Square with a great selection of comics, manga, and kids’ books. They also hold an annual Batman art show and they’re debuting their Sailor Moon art show this Saturday!
Some of my other favorite shops around the city are Comicazi (they have a great selection of vintage toys), New England Comics (The Tick HQ, as well as my LCS since I was a tiny Betty), and The Million Year Picnic (a great little shop in Harvard Square).
Hey, I’ve heard of Hub Comics!
Hub is the BEST.
Been a long and busy week. But now it’s time to relax with a good book.
Doors open at 8:30. (at The Sinclair)
On the topic of True Detective, the scene above is a good example of why the show is so amazing. It’s not really a spoiler, but I suggest you wait to watch it if you haven’t seen episode 3 already. Because it’s so much more effective in context.
Beyond Matthew McConaughey giving what is perhaps his best performance to date (including the film for which he’ll likely win an Oscar), the entire sequence is a great set up to the payoff. And it’s largely because of the score.
This is not uncommon in cinema, but I have a hard time remembering a television show that uses a score so effectively. This is Darren Aronofsky and Christopher Nolan territory. It’s absolutely haunting.
