Edinburgh-based cartoonist Edward Ross uses comics to illuminate the ideas behind our favourite films.

In Filmish, Ross's cartoon alter-ego guides readers through the annals of cinematic history, introducing us to some of the strange and fascinating concepts at work in the movies.

Each chapter focuses on a particular theme - the body, architecture, language - and explores an eclectic mix of cinematic triumphs, from A Trip to the Moon to Aliens.

Sitting within the tradition of bestselling non-fiction graphic novels like Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics and the Introducing... series, Filmish tackles serious issues - sexuality, race, censorship, propaganda - with authority and wit, throwing new light on some of the greatest films ever made.
