My favorite film is “The Best Years of Our Lives.” I’m also the author of “Film Noir 101: The 101 Best Film Noir Posters of the 1940s and 1950s,” “Take That, Adolf! The Fighting Comic Books of the Second World War,” and the upcoming "Hang 'Em High: A Century of Western Movie Posters," all from Fantagraphics. Click the cover images below to find the books on

Finally, I’m obsessed with finishing lists of films, and watch hundreds of movies for the first time each year. I’m slavishly devoted to the Academy Awards.
