    Offering new insight into Lennon and Ono as individuals, artists and lovers, Days That I’ll Remember is a gifted music journalist’s memoir of a seismic time in music, politics and culture and one of the most incisive and affectionate portraits ever written about this world-altering couple. 
     
    In this rich account of their relationship, Cott tells his own story alongside his many interviews with the couple. While most originally appeared in Rolling Stone, they usually did so in shortened form; the full-length versions here contain previously unpublished and often revealing material. Also featured is a recent Cott interview with Yoko Ono as well as images from her private archive. 
     
    Jonathan Cott’s relationship with two of the most iconic figures of our time began in 1968 when, as London correspondent for the fledgling Rolling Stone, he went to interview John Lennon and Yoko Ono in their London flat. A friendship was born that lasted for the rest of Lennon’s life and still continues today between Cott and Yoko Ono. 
     
    It was Jonathan Cott who interviewed the couple about their Double Fantasy album on December 5, 1980 in their apartment at the Dakota in New York. It would be Lennon’s last major interview.

    Hellboy's World - Comics and...

    Hellboy, Mike Mignola’s famed comic book demon hunter, wanders through a haunting and horrific world steeped in the history of weird fictions and wide-ranging folklores. Hellboy's World shows how our engagement with Hellboy's world is a highly aestheticized encounter with comics and their materiality. Scott Bukatman’s dynamic study explores how comics produce a heightened “adventure of reading” in which syntheses of image and word, image sequences, and serial narratives create compelling worlds for the reader’s imagination to inhabit. Drawing upon other media—including children’s books, sculpture, pulp fiction, cinema, graphic design, painting, and illuminated manuscripts—Bukatman reveals the mechanics of creating a world on the page. He also demonstrates the pleasurable and multiple complexities of the reader’s experience, invoking the riotous colors of comics that elude rationality and control and delving into shared fictional universes and occult detection, the horror genre and the evocation of the sublime, and the place of abstraction in Mignola’s art. Monsters populate the world of Hellboy comics, but Bukatman argues that comics are themselves little monsters, unruly sites of sensory and cognitive pleasures that exist, happily, on the margins. The book is not only a treat for Hellboy fans, but it will entice anyone interested in the medium of comics and the art of reading.
