Edinburgh-based cartoonist Edward Ross uses comics to illuminate the ideas behind our favourite films. In Filmish, Ross’s cartoon alter-ego guides readers through the annals of cinematic history, introducing us to some of the strange and fascinating concepts at work in the movies. Each chapter focuses on a particular theme – the body, architecture, language – and explores an eclectic mix of cinematic triumphs, from A Trip to the Moon to Aliens. Sitting within the tradition of bestselling non-fiction graphic novels like Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics and the IntroducingN series, Filmish tackles serious issues – sexuality, race, censorship, propaganda – with authority and wit, throwing new light on some of the greatest films ever made.

Author Bio:

Edward Ross is a comic book artist, writer and illustrator. Working alongside Dr James Hall, he has created many science-themed comics for universities, museums, charities and research bodies. Ross is a Film Studies graduate and regularly leads workshops in comic book creation. He lives in Edinburgh.
