Filmish : A Graphic Journey Through Film

Edinburgh-based cartoonist Edward Ross uses comics to illuminate the ideas behind our favourite films. In Filmish, Ross's cartoon alter-ego guides readers through the annals of cinematic history, introducing us to some of the strange and fascinating concepts at work in the movies. Each chapter focuses on a particular theme - the body, architecture, language - and explores an eclectic mix of cinematic triumphs, from A Trip to the Moon to Aliens.

 

Sitting within the tradition of bestselling non-fiction graphic novels like Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics and the Introducing...series, Filmish tackles serious issues - sexuality, race, censorship, propaganda - with authority and wit, throwing new light on some of the greatest films ever made. Originally self-published in a series of short works, the Filmish series has been a constant favourite of ours over on the blog - and also on the blog you can read a Director's Commentary (where we give the space to the creators to talk us through their new work in their own words) by Ed on Filmish here.
