    Great Moments in Advertising

    Get More: MTV Shows

    Comic writer and novelist Warren Ellis has a lengthy list of credits to his name. Transmetropolitan, FreakAngels, Crooked Little Vein, Fell, and The Authority to name a few. Next on his agenda is a new book title Gun Machine about a detective who finds a room full of guns from unsolved murders, the perpetrator of which, may be working for some very old Manhattan gods. If that wasn't enough to intrigue you, check out this trailer narrated by Wil Wheaton, illustrated by Ben Templesmith, and directed by Jim Batt (who you may remember from the Molly Crabapple illustrated video for Kim Boekbinder). Gun Machine is out now from Mulholland Books. (via MTV Geek) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  2. Puppets, Romance, and Open-Heart Surgery Take Center Stage in this Animated Short [VIDEO]

    Our Adorable Past

    I'm a big fan of short films and innovative animation. I Have Your Heart, a collaborative effort between New York illustrator Molly Crabapple, Melbourne animator Jim Batt, and musician Kim Boekbinder is both those things. Not to mention it's just plain good. "A sing‐a‐long song about love, loss, and open‐heart surgery," it uses paper puppets and stop-motion animation to create something that's half music video, half storybook. For more on the fascinating process of making the short, check out BoingBoing's interview with its trio of creators.
