It's an old "analog" idea that's gaining new credibility in the digital age: comic book journalism. Ad Astra Comix is breathing new life into the genre as it prepares for its second publication, EXTRACTION! which examines what the company calls "the criminal activities of mining companies" in North America.

Hot Docs 2015 radiates with personal, high-stakes stories

Photo: How to Change the World

Hot Docs 2015 has a lineup with some fabulous documentaries this year and as I peruse the pickings, I see it's going back to some fundamentals. Over the years, North America's biggest documentary showcase has become a glossy panorama of over-produced, TV-centric films. This year, I'm finding a lot of personal films, focussing on individuals and their challenges, that harken back to basics.

Amanda Lang had her Leslie Roberts moment this week, as Roberts had his Peter Mansbridge moment a week before. Lang is CBC's "senior business correspondent" (titles matter to these people, Lang lovingly repeats hers). She was found taking money for speeches from banks she reports on.
