Based on Wendy Pini's graphic novel remix of the classic short story, the thriller features music by Gregory Nabours and is directed by Calvin Remsberg.

Pini is the co-creator of Elfquest, oft-featured here at BB; Nabours wrote The Trouble With Words and was awarded a 2011 Ovation Award.

What do Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google all have in common? Somewhere in their framework, they all use MySQL, that most versatile (and free!) of database management systems. And they’re not alone. If your company or the one you’d like to work for wrangles data (and who doesn’t?), they’re going to need someone with a […]
