Seven Silver Bells against Darkness and Death: Garth Nix's Abhorsen Trilogy, by Laura Blackwell (12/8/03)
Review.
These high fantasy novels achieve an uncanny blend of mythic resonance and solidity of setting that makes the stories personal and immediate, despite their grandeur of scale and style.
Shinichiro Watanabe's Cowboy Bebop: The Movie Kicks Down Heaven's Door, by Laura Blackwell (10/6/03)

In 2071, the final frontier is dotted with spaceships, but there's no shiny happy Star Trek culture here in the solar system.

Sucked into a Whirlpool of Horror: The Spiraling Madness of Junji Ito's Uzumaki, by Laura Blackwell (7/15/02)
Review.
Uzumaki is that rare work that captures the style of Lovecraft's horror, gradually unveiling the grotesqueries underlying everyday life, without pilfering its distinctive content, or calling everything in sight "Cyclopean" or "squamous".
A Dangerous, but Rewarding, Journey into the Heart of Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis, by Laura Blackwell (4/22/02)
Review.
Long after the first viewing, the magnificently animated Metropolis lingers in the mind's eye. The beautiful, but troubled, city of Metropolis—as diverse and divided as a real-life city—haunts the thoughts.
