    Recently read and rather liked Chaykin's work for The Swords of Heaven, The Flowers of Hell. The only thing that sort of rankled was Chaykin's depiction of Erekose, which vaguely bothered me as oddly familiar and somehow Hollywood or Prince Valiant or something of the sort. It all came together when I read the afterward and learned he was modeled on Burt Lancaster.

    • I am reading Hawkeye by Matt Fraction, which is fantastic. I am not sure what to read next, but perhaps it will be Concrete vol. 2, which is low paced and requires relaxation and I am not in the mood but I love the art and text by Paul Chadwick. I also got two Creepy omnibuses with the works of two deceased genius Bernie Wrightson and Alex Toth and The Adventures of Luther Arkwright and its sequel Heart of Empire.

        Immediately thought of Lancaster's turn in, 'The Crimson Pirate. ' That's a great movie. Lancaster's at the peak of his physical prowess & he's ably aided & abetted by his old acrobat partner, Nick Cravat! Lancaster started out as an acrobat & circus performer with Cravat.

          Ah! Thanks for that. Looks swashbuckling. I'll ask if they have it at the local vid store.

          In a strange turn of synchronicity I've been looking around a bit for another Lancaster vehicle because I was hoping to rewatch the 1977 Island of Doctor Moreau. So far, I've only managed to see Island of Lost Souls and wonder if I need to rewatch the Kilmer/Brando Moreau.

          More on topic, I'm currently reading Joe Sacco's Paying the Land. It's rather amazing, like a long, unflinching documentary in comic form.
