All Star Companion Volume Four

Matthew Moyer recommends Twomorrows' last volume in the All Star Companion series to pop culture scholars of all stripes. It's an essential element to any Golden Age history, when so many originals are still out of the reach of the casual fan.

Relix: The Book

Relive the decade no one claims to remember through this retrospective of Relix, a magazine that revolved around the Grateful Dead.

Collected Jack Kirby Collector Vol. 7

The four issues collected in Twomorrows latest Jack Kirby Collector are packed with interviews, pseudo-scholarly/analytical pieces, and metric tons of artwork from comics' favorite "working-class kid from the Bronx."

Grunge

Take a trip back to Seattle's musical heydey with Michael Lavine, who brings us all manner of visual treasure with Grunge.

Imagining India

How does one begin to plan the future of a country that deliberately uses late-night TV as a form of birth control? E.J. Iannelli mulls over the possibilities that IT mogul Nandan Nilekani dreams up in his book Imagining India.

Our Noise

Scott Adams finds this compelling history of Merge Records, the underdog label that beat the odds and succeeded, to be insanely readable.

Screen Reviews

All The Way From Michigan Not Mars

We follow singing sensation Rosie Thomas on tour and see how nicely everyone gets along.

Patti Smith: Dream Of Life

Patti Smith is artfully captured over 11 years, showing America's punk poet as mother, daughter, rebel, and widow. James Mann finds it a beautiful and captivating portrait of one of our greatest artists.

You Weren't There

In the near future, there will be a documentary produced on every single punk scene or band from the late '70s to mid '80s. And that's just fine.
