Matters of Gravity

Leafing through a copy of Wired today, I noticed that Scott Bukatman, author of Terminal Identity, has a new book, Matters of Gravity: Special Effects and Supermen in the Twentieth Century, focusing on how special effects help to work through the threats posed by the emergence of new technologies, with an emphasis on how these effects are realized within urban space through musical films and superhero comics. I don’t have many details available, other than a brief Amazon review, but Terminal Identity was very good.
