If you’ve been a regular Cinebeats reader for awhile you’re probably aware that I love comic books. When Curt over at the wonderful Groovy Age of Horror site mentioned that he was interested in a few new contributors I figured I’d throw my hat into the ring since I have a large collection of groovy stuff that I’d like to share with others. I’m especially fond of vintage Horror manga illustrated and written by female Japanese artists so I’ll probably be sharing a lot of Japanese stuff with the Groovy Age of Horror readers. I’m going to try and post there at least 2 or 3 times a month so keep an eye out for my contributions.
The Groovy Age of Horror blog has long been one of my favorite blogs and it helped inspire me to create Cinebeats. If you enjoy vintage paperbacks, comics and fumetti I highly recommend stopping by the site and checking out all the fabulous eye-candy you can find there.
Speaking of great blogs. . .
Some of my favorite film books about sixties film sirens have been written by the talented and creative author Tom Lisanti. Tom is responsible for such wonderful publications as Fantasy Femmes of 60’s Cinema, Film Fatales, Drive-In Dream Girls and Hollywood Surf and Beach Movies: The First Wave, 1959-1969.
He’s also written for publications like Filmfax, Outré, Films of the Golden Age, Femme Fatales and most recently Cinema Retro.
Tom Lisanti has recently started his own blog to go along with his terrific website Sixties Cinema and if you’re a fan of films from that era and the beautiful women who starred in them, I highly recommend giving Tom’s website & blog a look. He shares lots of interesting tidbits and news with his readers that should appeal to other sixties cinema fans like myself.
