Here is some comic relief from the recent evil theme. Swede Johannes Nyholm has released a trailer for his short film, Las Palmas, wherein a baby, presumably his daughter, plays the role of the ugly American remarkably well, though she is a cutie. It is creative, well executed, and hilarious.
Nyholm has done some interesting work; check him out.
My friend Andrew sent me the following comic jewel: “Why We’re Here.” It is a parody of Jack Chick’s horrid religious tracts by Steve Ellis and Fred Van Lente. Instead of the wrathful, faceless Christ of Chick’s decadent Calvinism, we get Lovecraft’s “Old Ones” from his Cthulhu mythology. I especially like the last page, which mocks Chick’s salvation check boxes.
