I read a review someone posted about Filmish a few weeks ago (which I can’t seem to find to credit) (*Edit* it was faintingviolet’s review) and thought the subject matter sounded interesting and the comic concept intriguing. While I do read a few online comics like Sarah Andersen and the Oatmeal this was probably the longest comic book I’ve read.
Ross splits his book into seven sections: The Eye, The Body, Sets & Architecture, Time, Voice & Language, Power & Ideology and Technology & Technophobia. He covers some serious topics like race and gender in cinema but the comic book style made the subject matter easily digestible. It’s well researched but I do wonder if something was lost in translation. The comic is about 200 pages with only three or four lines of text per page; this doesn’t lead to a very in depth look at the history of film.
While this one is a pretty niche subject I’m sure some fellow cinephiles will find it interesting!
