Teen Titans: Deathtrap

DC

Written by Sean McKeever and Marv Wolfman; Art by Fernando Dagnino, Joe Bennett, Rick Leonardi; Cover by Andrew Robinson

Jan 12, 2010 Comic Books Web Exclusive

This lame crossover trade paperback collects the Deathtrap storyline, and includes Teen Titans Annual 2009, Titans #12-13, Teen Titans #70 and Vigilante #5-6. Writers Sean McKeever (Gravity, Sentinel, Terror Titans) and Marv Wolfman (Blade, The Tomb of Dracula) do little to rectify the creative funk this once-thriving second-tier series is in at the moment.

Devo

Freedom of Choice

Warner Bros.

Jan 12, 2010 Music Web Exclusive

Despite Devo's ubiquitous name-recognition, even most rock nerds would be hard-pressed to conjure up more than the chorus to the band's lone hit, 1980's "Whip It." This infectiously catchy cut from Freedom of Choice, Devo's third album, secured the band's status as a novelty act. More

Booster Gold: Blue and Gold

DC

Written by Geoff Johns and Jeff Katz; Art and cover by Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund

Jan 11, 2010 Comic Books Web Exclusive

Juggernaut-scribe Geoff Johns (The Flash, Green Lantern) and former film executive Jeff Katz (Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash) inject a ton of cheeky humor and witty plotting into Booster Gold's second time traveling volume (finally available in paperback). The big thrill of reading Blue and Gold (issues #0, #7-10, and #1,000,000) is seeing artist and Booster creator Dan Jurgens (Death of Superman) return not only to Michael Jon Carter, but his lesser known 1990s creations.

BrĂ¼no

Studio: Universal

Jan 11, 2010 DVDs Web Exclusive

So much conjecture has already been spilled over Brüno that it's pointless to hash out plot points and delve into a litany of specifics from the film. If you haven't seen it, renting or purchasing is a no-brainer. If you have seen it, you may want to revisit it, as the DVD provides ample context for the Felini-esque madness that imbued the film.

Devo is Akron Ohio's Greatest Musical Act. Granted, there's not much competition for the title. Chrissie Hynde? Well, she shipped off to the U.K. before she made it big. Disqualified. The Black Keys? Great band. But it would be a shame for any townparticularly the one-time "Rubber Capital of the World"to have a musical heritage that begins in the 21st century, and it's hard to see how any act can compete with the sublime weirdness that is Devo.

For the past 50 years, Jim Marshall has devoted himself to photographing musicians. But more than just taking pictures, Marshall had a knack for capturing moments, snapshots of when the music and the individual collided, which, in turn, revealed something special or private about the artist. His pictures were often windows into the souls of those who were so revered but not always understood. More

You've got to hand it to Andy Richter: He really did try to go it alone after departing from Late Night with Conan O'Brien in 2000.
