Toonzone Presents: An Interview/Tribute to Dwayne McDuffie

Back in 2006, I briefly flirted with the notion of writing a book about superhero animation, its history and trajectory.

"Summer Wars (UK Edition)": A Love Machine

I remember seeing the initial publicity for Summer Wars some years ago. It looked kind of interesting, but most of the trailers left me fairly bewildered as to what was going on. So when the chance came to get some answers, I eagerly jumped in. The film is set in what is essentially the not […]

"Summer Wars" (FUNi release): Enlist Today!

I went into Summer Wars pretty much blind. With a vague title like that, I really didn’t know what to expect. What I got was an interesting combination of plausible (yet fantastical) tech thriller, slice-of-life comedy/drama, and above all, an emphasis on the importance of the family unit.
