I used to have a pathological obsession with the show Alias. Somewhat embarrassingly, I never really got into Lost. I may as well have been telling people,

"Vertigo is the jam! I mean, what was up with that whole Joshua Tree and War crap back in the '80s? And what about those nifty sunglasses Bono (pronounced boh-noh) huh? Love it!"

However, in my defense, I like J.J. Abrams, because like many movie-goers, I get sucked into a volatile and ambivalent curiosity only he can conjure.
Case in point, the Cloverfield trailer.

Anyway, all that to say there's a manga adaptation of Cloverfield, which essentially sucks all the curiosity out of you and replaces it with hamfisted gratification.

Cloverfield is just The Host with yuppies and the Blair Witch's camera.

A remake of The Host for the USA is set up... The only way they can do it is if they set it in New Orleans.
