The art knight rises

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s the Istvan Gallery’s latest exhibition celebrating comic books!


Visual Arts

Louis Fowler
Hot on the well-pixelated heels of its last exhibition, the video game-themed Art of Bits/Bits of Art, the Istvan Gallery once again finds itself in geeky territory with its latest art show, The Art of the Comic Book. For gallery owner and curator Stephen Kovash, who learned to draw from comic books, it’s a chance to give Oklahoma City a new perspective on what has long been considered low-brow art by outsiders.

This Is the End

If only that were true.


Comedy

Louis Fowler
This Is the End is the cinematic equivalent of being stuck in a living room with a group of High Times subscribers who have plenty of money to burn and plenty of fart jokes to release. Yes, there is a twist to it all, but it seems more like an afterthought than an actual plot point.

Rush

Ron Howard's latest is a crash course in filmmaking that reeks of burnt rubber.


Action

Louis Fowler
Rush isn’t about the much-loved Canadian power-prog trio. Sadly.

The gospel according to Sean

Sean C. Johnson lends his soulful sound to inspire the masses.


Music

Louis Fowler
Neo-gospel singer Sean C. Johnson has always been a music fan, but it wasn’t until hearing a ’60s soul legend on a record player by chance that he decided, right then and there, that was what he wanted to do with his life.
