No MAN’s Land In 2002, the world changes forever. Every man, every boy, every mammal with a Y chromosome everywhere on Earth suddenly collapses and dies. With the loss of nearly half the planet’s population, the gears of society grind to a halt, and a world of women are left to pick up the pieces and try to keep civilization from collapsing entirely. The “gendercide,” however, is not absolutely complete. For some unknown reason, one young man named Yorick Brown and his pet male monkey, Ampersand, are spared. Overnight, this anonymous twentysomething becomes the most important person on the planet — the key, it is hoped, to unlocking the secret of the mysterious sex-specific plague. For Yorick himself, the most important person on the planet is 10,000 miles away — and he will stop at nothing to find her. But as he travels across this strange new world, both danger and opportunity alike threaten to derail his journey — and with it the future of the human race. Writer Brian K. Vaughn and artist Pia Guerra’s acclaimed VERTIGO series Y: THE LAST MAN brings to vivid life the age-old speculation: What would really happen to the last man on Earth? Collects Y: THE LAST MAN 11-23.

In this era of moral relativism, many people have come to believe that life -- and by extension, the universe -- is inherently random. Not so, argues prominent self-help author T. Troward. To the contrary, the author contends in The Law and the Word that the universe is governed by a strict set of moral, spiritual, and metaphysical principles, and that only by learning and adhering to these natural laws can individuals achieve true success and fulfillment. An interesting and inspiring read for those drawn to the personal development genre.

The startlingly original look at life on the streets of Baghdad during the Iraq War inspired by true events arrives in a stunning new softcover edition. In this provocative graphic novel, superstar comics writer Brian K. Vaughan examines life on the streets of war-torn Iraq. In the spring of 2003, a pride of lions escaped from the Baghdad Zoo during an American bombing raid. Lost and confused, hungry but finally free, the four lions roamed the decimated streets of Baghdad in a desperate struggle for their lives. In documenting the plight of the lions, PRIDE OF BAGHDAD raises questions about the true meaning of liberation: Can it be given, or is it earned only through self-determination and sacrifice? And in the end, is it truly better to die free than to live life in captivity? This moving graphic novel is inspired by true events. This new Deluxe Edition hardcover presents the original graphic novel, plus developmental art and more.

This book examines the ways in which individual moments of violence develop, and are presented, in comics and graphic novels. It raises questions about depiction and the act of showing violence, but it also considers the ways in which violence can affect those involved over the long term. The impact of gender on violence, as well as the nature of sexual violence, are both considered here. Contributors discuss the ways in which violent acts can be rendered palatable (for example through humour) but also how they can create enormous trauma and long lasting repercussions for both perpetrators and victims. Together with Contexts of Violence in Comics, it offers a nuanced examination of the ways in which violence in comics is presented in different texts, genres, cultures and contexts.

Undercover FBI agent Dashiell Bad Horse may not believe in God, but recent events suggest that some higher power is working overtime to keep him alive. In fact, after several well-placed needles and a few well-aimed bullets, he’s better positioned than ever to take down the kingpin of the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation, Chief Lincoln Red Crow. But for all of Dash’s good fortune, his mother is still dead, and her murderer is still at large. He’s still strung out on heroin, and so is his unborn child’s mother—Red Crow’s daughter. And now he’s triggered the suspicions of the Chief’s deadliest enforcer, Shunka, a man more than willing to employ violence in the service of both discovering and keeping secrets.

The 1990s was the decade when Marvel Comics sold 8.1 million copies of an issue of the X-Men, saw its superstar creators form their own company, cloned Spider-Man, and went bankrupt. The 1990s was when Superman died, Batman had his back broken, and the runaway success of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman led to DC Comics’ Vertigo line of adult comic books. It was the decade of gimmicky covers, skimpy costumes, and mega-crossovers. But most of all, the 1990s was the decade when companies like Image, Valiant and Malibu published million-selling comic books before the industry experienced a shocking and rapid collapse. American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1990s is a year-by-year account of the comic book industry during the Bill Clinton years. This full-color hardcover volume documents the comic book industry’s most significant publications, most notable creators, and most impactful trends from that decade. Written by Keith Dallas and Jason Sacks.
