'Game 6 Was a Killer': Charlie Huston Tackles Marvel's Bullseye

Freed from continuity politics, Perfect Game excels as the best kind comicbook story by tapping a little known fact from the main character's fictive bio.

Rediscovery of the Ordinary: Chris Ware's 'Lint'

LINT may be empty of meaning, but it’s full of truth. There’s a wonderful tension between the towering ambition that Ware brings to this project and the smallness of the story it tells. There’s no high drama, no intrigue, only the epic tale of a small and predictable life.

Matt Pond PA: The Dark Leaves

More of the same lush, tour-ready indie rock tunes that Matt Pond PA has been trafficking since they actually lived in PA.

She & Him: Volume Two

Volume Two is the right name -- it plays like the second half of a somewhat bloated double album.

Phantogram: Eyelid Movies

A New York group that sounds more like California.

Vic Chesnutt: Skitter on Take-off

Lost in the rush of deserved praise for At the Cut, Skitter on Take-off seems to have gone largely unnoticed. That’s a shame, because the album is brilliant.
