PAGES   32 pages.
COLOR   Full Color.
It's 1987. Marcus Lopez hates school. His grades suck. He has no money. The jocks are hassling his friends. He can't focus in class, thanks to his mind constantly drifting to the stunning girl in the front row and the Dag Nasty show he has tickets to. But the jocks are the children of Joseph Stalin's top assassin, the teachers are members of an ancient league of assassins, the class he's failing is Dismemberment 101, and his crush, a member of the most notorious crime syndicate in Japan, has a double-digit body count. Welcome to the most brutal high school on Earth, where the world's top crime families send the next generation of assassins to be trained. Murder is an art. Killing is a craft. At King's Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts, the dagger in your back isn't always metaphorical, nor is your fellow classmates' poison. Join writer RICK REMENDER with rising star WESLEY CRAIG (Batman) and legendary colorist LEE LOUGHRIDGE (Fear Agent) to reminisce about the mid-1980s underground through the eyes of the most damaged and dangerous teenagers on Earth.

SPECIAL NOTES   Mature Content
SIZE   11x9
The debut graphic novel from a dazzling newcomer with a singular, idiosyncratic style. Michael DeForge's brash, confident, undulating sensibility sent a shockwave through the comics world for its unique, fully formed aesthetic. Ant Colony follows the denizens of a black ant colony under attack from the nearby red ants. On the surface, it's the story of this war, the destruction of a civilization, and the ants' all-too-familiar desire to rebuild. Underneath, though, Ant Colony plumbs the deepest human concerns - loneliness, faith, love, apathy, and more. All of this is done with humor and sensitivity, exposing a world where spiders can wreak unimaginable amounts of havoc with a single gnash of their jaws.

1814, near the little village of Hartlepool England, a war-ship in the Napoleonic fleet sinks. Amid the wreckage, fishermen discover a survivor: a monkey dressed in full military regalia, the mascot of the shipwrecked French vessel. The people of Hartlepool despised all Frenchmen and, though they have never seen a Frenchmen - or a monkey for that matter, the ape unfortunatly found himself court martialled. Inspired by the famous legend of the Hartlepool monkey, this is a tragi-comic fable of war and jingoism, of xenophobia and ignorance and of the glimmering of enlightenment.

Translated from the highly acclaimed French classic, Snowpiercer is soon to be a major motion picture directed by Joon-Ho Bong (The Host) and starring Chris Evans.

Origins of Comics: From William Hogarth to Winsor McCay HC
page 368, $50.00


PUBLISHER    University Press of Mississippi
WRITER    Thierry Smolderen
ARTIST    Rudolph Dirks
PAGES   200 pages.
COLOR   B and W.
SIZE    9x12
In The Origins of Comics: From William Hogarth to Winsor McCay, Thierry Smolderen presents a cultural landscape whose narrative differs in many ways from those presented by other historians of the comic strip. Rather than beginning his inquiry with the popularly accepted sequential art definition of the comic strip, Smolderen instead engages with the historical dimensions that inform that definition. His goal is to understand the processes that led to the 20th-century comic strip, the highly recognizable species of picture stories that crystallized around 1900 in the United States.
