The Awesome List: Last Rituals, Bond’s kids, how to stop a giant monster, Where the Wild Things Are clip, and more.
Bookgasm continues to turn me on to the good stuff. This time it’s a mystery with “secret symbols, medieval witchcraft, and modern murder.” And it’s set in Iceland.
“Fraulein Stein’s Monster”
Knowing how much I dig Frankenstein’s Monster, my buddy Joe sent me a link to a Christian manga series that sort of features the character. He writes, “From issue 7 on, the second half of each issue is a movie the kids are making, done in different styles – disaster film, biblical epic, Star Trek, and the Frankenstein one.” Gonna check it out.
As much as Bond gets around, it makes sense that he has some kids running around. The Double 0 Section blog has a rundown on them, focusing particularly on his daughter, Jill, from the Italian film Naked You Die. Oh, I’m so adding that to my Netflix queue.
How to stop a giant monster
A boy and his Wild Thing
Wanna see a clip from the Where the Wild Things Are movie? Okay.
On a related note, it sucks that I have to type out the whole name of the movie because when I abbreviate it Wild Things, it causes confusion.
Two great tastes…
Not Awesome: Gary Gygax RIP
