Graphic Novel Review: The Field on the Edge of the Woods

The Field on the Edge of the Woods (Volume 1)

The Field on the Edge of the Woods (Volume 1), by Michael Weber, Gary Morgan, and Loran Skinkis

When film producer Gary falls asleep, he wakes up in the middle of the woods. But when the Grim Reaper pitches a script idea to Gary, the real story begins.

Impressive artwork accompanies a story that begins to unfold, in this first of four planned books. The characters are fantastically drawn. Though, some of the wording is cut off and a bit hard to read. At just 48 pages, this graphic novel is a fast and easy read. Infused with fantasy, mystery, and humorous characters, this is a highly entertaining debut with a promising start.

DVD Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Picking up where The Order of the Phoenix left off, this 6th installment focuses on Harry and Dumbledore working together to discover Voldemort’s weakness and the only way of standing up to the dark lord.

Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) are another year older, and teenage romance begins to bloom. This is a fun escape, from an otherwise much darker and ominous film, as each year/movie has been. The acting is spot on, leading to an emotional roller coaster.

Though, as always, the film misses out on a lot of detail from the novel, the main plot is there. This installment has more suspense, danger, and mystery than any other previous. And much like after finishing the corresponding novel, I eagerly anticipate the final showdown that’s coming in the next film(s).

Special features from the DVD include:
– Additional scenes
– JK Rowling – A Year in the Life
– Close Up with the Cast of Harry Potter
– Q&A with Cast and Crew
– Sneak Peak at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
– One Minute Drills – Character recaps

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is available NOW on Blu-ray™, DVD, & Download.
