. . . so says Andy Serkis, and JJ Abrams seems pretty impressed too!
A new arc, a new slim trade paperback format for ELEPHANTMEN, and at $9.99, a great opportunity for new readers to start reading the book they've heard so much about! Jack Farrell is a private detective who never gave a second thought to the Elephantmen - until he was paid to.

"This is a superhero movie with something to say", says Nick Setchfield of SFX and he's absolutely right. The Marvel Age of Comics has definitely become The Marvel Age of Movies and this was something of an event, courtesy of Skype. I joined a few of my comics biz pals at Marble Arch Odeon last night to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier, after we'd been given tickets by Rian Hughes who'd managed to wangle a fair few of them - plus we got popcorn, stickers, badges and water to get us through those tense moments. I'm not going to review it, because I'm not a reviewer, but Nick Setchfield is, and you can check out his review on this link. As for me... I'm going to see it again!

This Paris trip is a London College of Fashion research visit and here our Visual Merchandising students take to the The Triangle d'Or, better known as the 'Golden Triangle', where the most luxurious fashion brands congregate on three of the most famous shopping streets in Paris.
Golden eyebrows and bright colours from the House of Dior.
Above: Silver boots and multi-coloured jackets from Courrèges, known for it's ultra-modern designs and a very groovy logo! Below: more multi-coloured items, but this time from the incredibly well-designed Apple store (a converted bank) in Opéra, where we were given a tour by the manager.
Next up; an incredibly interesting and informative tour of La Rosa Mannequins, the oldest italian mannequins brand, dating back to 1922.
Back to Super-Heroes: The Art of Alex Ross at the Mona Bismarck American Centre for Art & Culture. I wasn't sure if you could take photos, but with the lack of a sign and the fact that everyone else seemed to be doing so, I took a few myself.
There were a couple of prints of other artist's work to show where Ross gets some of his inspiration. Above a painting by Norman Rockwell and below, one of my favourite pieces by J.C. Leyendecker from 1923, which inspired a Joker and Harley Quinn painting.
One of my favourite things to do in Paris is rummaging through old magazines in the little green boxes that run along a vast stretch of the river Seine. This trip I found Le Figaro Illustré magazine from 1935 featuring the illustration above by an artist called Geffroy.
Eiffel Tower from the top of the Pompidou Centre, where I went to see the Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibition at the end of the day, avoiding the crowds perfectly.
