     NBC’s Constantine TV show is set to air on 24th October with Matt Ryan in the lead role so there’s plenty of time to familiarise yourself with Vertigo’s paranormal PI.

     Grubby, British, sociopolitical and astute, Constantine’s adventures will appeal to those who want smarts with their supernatural.

     There are bigger, more epic story arcs than the standalones in this graphic novel collection but time in Constantine’s company is always well spent.

     Carr’s self-deprecating camp infuses this autobiography which unfortunately stops short before his fame gets started, suggesting all the good stuff has been saved for later volumes.  It’s a shame because despite the good humour there is nothing remarkable here, unless you count the fact that Carr is surprisingly well-adjusted for a comedian.

     Alan’s formative years seem no different to those of any ordinary middle-class thirty-something;  nice family, depressingly menial part-time jobs, a pointless degree and some fun holidays.

     Unfortunately the opportunity to offer advice on the perils of building a stand-up career is overlooked, with Carr being unduly brief and modest about such a difficult profession.

     If you like Carr you’ll like this, but the best is probably yet to come.

 Pure trash of course but also a fascinating insight into celebrity culture’s evolution throughout the noughties.

     As the founding editor of Heat magazine Frith makes for a flawed and fabulous narrator, jealous of the success of fellow publications, often derogatory about the stars he refers to as “playthings” and covetous of fame.   Frith is also fiercely loyal to his team and dedicated to a refreshing and  worthy ethos to de-bunk celebrity myth.
     Ironically and unfortunately, normalising celebrities created a space for ordinary folk from reality shows to seize the spotlight.  The subsequent rise of savvy PRs has enabled celebs to play the once revelatory magazines at their own game.
   
     It’s a fascinating insight into a unique period of modern history by a smart, flawed guy who was actually there.

     French animator Michel Ocelot may lack the marketing appeal of a certain mouse but his movies cast more enchantments than a month at Disneyland, Paris.

     Tales Of The Night is an anthology of  little known silhouette folktales, imagined by would-be moviemakers against a jewel bright backdrop of ancient and exotic locations.

     The roots of familiar stories lurk beneath the strange beauty of Ocelot’s shadow theatre in a primal and dangerous form; cunning and tenacity are worth more than might, princess brides are not what they seem, animals speak, werewolves roam and Happy Ever Afters have a high price.

     Children used to big-eyed cuteness and easy moralising will be entranced, while grown-ups will feel like children all over again.

Verdict ~ Lovely, hypnotic and bizarre.
