Jerusalem - by Guy Delisle (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 344Genre: Comics + Graphic NovelsSub-Genre: LiteraryFormat: PaperbackPublisher: Drawn & QuarterlyAge Range: AdultAuthor: Guy DelisleLanguage: English About the Book Acclaimed graphic memoirist Delisle returns with a thoughtful and moving travelogue about life in East Jerusalem and his involvement with the brutal, three-week Gaza War. Book Synopsis "["Jerusalem"] is a small miracle: concise, even-handed, highly particular." "The Guardian""""""Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City" is the acclaimed graphic memoirist Guy Delisle's strongest work yet, a thoughtful and moving travelogue about life in contemporary Jerusalem. Delisle expertly lays the groundwork for a cultural road map of the Holy City, utilizing the classic "stranger in a strange land" point of view that made his other books required reading for understanding what daily life is like in cities few are able to travel to. "Jerusalem" explores the complexities of a city that represents so much to so many. It eloquently examines the impact of conflict on the lives of people on both sides of the wall while drolly recounting the quotidian: checkpoints, traffic jams, and holidays. When observing the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim populations that call Jerusalem home, Delisle's drawn line is both sensitive and fair, assuming nothing and drawing everything. A sixteen-page appendix to the paperback edition lets the reader behind the curtain, revealing intimate process sketches from Delisle's time in Jerusalem. "Jerusalem" is a masterfully hewn travelogue; topping Best of 2012 lists from "The Guardian," "Paste," and the "Montreal Gazette," it was the graphic novel of the year." Review Quotes "The cultural and physical barriers among the Jewish, Muslim and Christian communities become the source of dark but gentle comedy: absurdity teetering on the edge of tragedy." --The New York Times "The tone of [Jerusalem] is by turns gently humorous and dumbfounded. His drawing style . . . suits his brisk, snapshot approach." --Financial Times About the Author Guy Delisle is the award-winning author of the travelogues "Burma Chronicles," "Jerusalem," "Pyongyang," and "Shenzhen "as well as the 2013 graphic novel "A User's Guide to Neglectful Parenting." He spent ten years working in animation, which allowed him to learn about movement and drawing, and he is now focusing on his cartooning. In 2008 2009, he accompanied his wife, an administrator for Doctors Without Borders, on a yearlong posting in Jerusalem. He lives in the south of France with his family."

But when a fugitive from his student radical days reaches out for help, Ethan must face the only thing he fears ... his own past"-- Book Synopsis Sex, drugs, and murder in 1980s Los Angeles... And the best new twist on paperback pulp heroes since The Punisher or Jack Reacher. Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, the modern masters of crime noir, bring us the last thing anyone expected from them - a good guy - in a bold new series of original graphic novels, with three books releasing over the next year, each a full-length story that stands on its own. Meet Ethan Reckless: Your trouble is his business, for the right price. But when a fugitive from his student radical days reaches out for help, Ethan must face the only thing he fears... his own past. "Imagine Redford at his peak, ambling through sun-drenched, eighties L.A. in a serpentine plot that is equal parts Long Goodbye and Point Break. No one does crime fic like Brubaker and Phillips and their collaboration has never felt more new. Explosive. Vital. And yes... reckless. I love this book." - Damon Lindelof (Lost, HBO's Watchmen) "Reckless is an absolute rush: on the same level as golden age Travis McGee novels and the hardest-hitting Richard Stark stories. This one comes at you as fast as Steve McQueen in a souped-up Mustang and as hard as Charles Bronson with a baseball bat. You gotta have it." - Joe Hill (Locke & Key, N0S4A2) Look for book 2 in the Reckless series in April 2021! Review Quotes PUBLISHERS WEEKLY --The sure-footed latest hardboiled thriller from Brubaker and Phillips (Criminal) hits the ground running, delivering both style and substance in its sunny 1980s California setting. Ethan Reckless, a freelance fixer and odd-jobs man operating out of an old movie palace, gets a call from an ex-girlfriend that drags him back to his tangled past in the hippie counterculture. His attempt to help his ex recover stolen money brings him up against the FBI, the CIA, left-wing terrorists, plus old friends and enemies. Reckless is a quintessential noir hero, a jaded man who has countless secrets and a weakness for troublemaking women, and Brubaker and Phillips hit familiar beats with each plot twist and turn. An undercurrent of political commentary and judicious use of historical details, like the CIA's domestic spy program, lend welcome heft to the pulpy proceedings. Phillips drenches the pages in warm, saturated colors that provide an ironic contrast to the characters' shady doings. This slick offering from an über-talented team, the first in a series, promises good things to come. (Dec.) "Twists abound and tension mounts as this first installment in a new ongoing series progresses, offering a fantastic introduction to a fascinating protagonist. VERDICT While obviously inspired by classic characters such as Travis McGee and Jack Reacher, Brubaker and Phillips's (Cruel Summer) Reckless transcends the creators' influences in this complex portrait of the heartbroken melancholy of a disillusioned idealist who can't quite give up on his fellow man." -Library Journal

Leonardo 2 - (Louvre Collection) by Stephane Levallois (Hardcover)
Number of Pages: 96Genre: Comics + Graphic NovelsSub-Genre: LiterarySeries Title: Louvre CollectionFormat: HardcoverPublisher: Nantier Beall Minoustchine PublishingAge Range: AdultAuthor: Stephane LevalloisLanguage: English Book Synopsis Planet Earth, engaged in an intergalactic conflict, owes its salvation to the clone of Leonardo da Vinci and to the rebirth of his genius. Author Stéphane Levallois has created the fantastic universes of many of the big Hollywood blockbusters (Alien, King Kong (Skull Island), Harry Potter and many others). The result of two years of elaboration and work, this space opera exemplifies his talent in two areas that he masters to perfection: the universe of science fiction and art. To build his story and compose his boards, Levallois draws from the painted and drawn work of the Renaissance master, selecting a large number of drawings and paintings by Leonardo to represent the characters, vessels or even the architectures in his story. The grand scale result is stupefying as Leonardo's everlasting visions are successfully projected into a stunning futuristic setting. Review Quotes "Brilliant melding of space opera and art history spiced up with a clear shout-out to gay pride that has been wonderfully combined in this hardcover novel. A big handsome volume." --Karen Haber, Locus"Comics aficionados will enjoy this experiment purely for the virtuoso quality of Levallois' art." --Publishers Weekly About the Author Stéphane Levallois was born in 1970 and lives in Paris.

Book Synopsis Early in Batman's career, the Joker and the Riddler would seemingly be natural allies. But each man determined that he and he alone must be the one to kill the Bat... and either would sooner burn down Gotham than be beaten to the punch line. Untold until now, one of the darkest chapters in Batman's history sees all of Gotham's villains choosing sides in a battle of wits that soon turns into a full-blown war--complete with civilian casualties. In the War of Jokes and Riddles, only one side can claim victory... but the scars it leaves will shape Batman's future as he makes the most important decision of his life.

Spanning several different Superman titles, the arc was a blockbuster in every sense of the word... the final fight between Superman and Doomsday is a knock-out brawl for the ages.--PASTE MAGAZINE An epic and carefully constructed narrative.--BLOODY DISGUSTING Both in the universe and outside of it, DC toyed with the idea of a culture that had come to take the Man of Steel for granted. This was a time when heroes were getting darker and more extreme in their methods, and the style of the era didn't seem to allow for a character like Superman to keep his relevance. By removing Superman from the equation, we - and the characters in the DCU - learned how important Superman was as an icon, and his return was all the more impactful. This storyline brought the real and fictional universes together in a stirring realization of just how much Superman means to our culture.--IGN About the Author Dan Jurgens is a writer and artist most famous for creating Booster Gold, as well as for being one of the main forces behind The Death of Superman. He has written and/or illustrated titles such as Justice League America, Captain America, The Sensational Spider-Man, Thor, Teen Titans, Aquaman, DC's Tangent imprint, and the company-wide DC crossover known as Zero Hour.

Amazing Decisions - by Dan Ariely (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 224Genre: Comics + Graphic NovelsSub-Genre: NonfictionFormat: PaperbackPublisher: Hill & WangAge Range: AdultBook theme: GeneralAuthor: Dan ArielyLanguage: English Book Synopsis Dan Ariely, the New York Times bestselling author of Predictably Irrational, and illustrator Matt R. Trower present a playful graphic novel guide to better decision-making, based on the author's groundbreaking research in behavioral economics, neuroscience, and psychology. The internationally renowned author Dan Ariely is known for his incisive investigations into the messy business of decision-making. Now, in Amazing Decisions, his unique perspective--informed by behavioral economics, neuroscience, and psychology--comes alive in the graphic form. The illustrator Matt R. Trower's playful and expressive artwork captures the lessons of Ariely's groundbreaking research as they explore the essential question: How can we make better decisions? Amazing Decisions follows the narrator, Adam, as he faces the daily barrage of choices and deliberations. He juggles two overlapping--and often contradictory--sets of norms: social norms and market norms. These norms inform our thinking in ways we often don't notice, just as Adam is shadowed by the "market fairy" and the "social fairy," each compelling him to act in certain ways. Good decision-making, Ariely argues, requires us to identify and evaluate the forces at play under different circumstances, leading to an optimal outcome. Amazing Decisions is a fascinating and entertaining guide to developing skills that will prove invaluable in personal and professional life. About the Author Dan Ariely is the bestselling author of Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality, and The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty. He is the James B. Duke Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics and founder of the Center for Advanced Hindsight at Duke University. Matt R.

Asterios Polyp - (Pantheon Graphic Novels) by David Mazzucchelli (Hardcover)
Number of Pages: 344Genre: Comics + Graphic NovelsSub-Genre: GeneralSeries Title: Pantheon Graphic NovelsFormat: HardcoverPublisher: Pantheon BooksAge Range: AdultAuthor: David MazzucchelliLanguage: English About the Book The triumphant return of one of comics' greatest talents. Meet Asterios Polyp: middle-aged architect and teacher, aesthete and womanizer, whose life is wholly upended when he moves to a small town in America's heartland after his New York City apartment goes up in flames. Book Synopsis The triumphant return of one of comics' greatest talents, with an engrossing story of one man's search for love, meaning, sanity, and perfect architectural proportions. An epic story long awaited, and well worth the wait. Meet Asterios Polyp: middle-aged, meagerly successful architect and teacher, aesthete and womanizer, whose life is wholly upended when his New York City apartment goes up in flames. In a tenacious daze, he leaves the city and relocates to a small town in the American heartland. But what is this "escape" really about? As the story unfolds, moving between the present and the past, we begin to understand this confounding yet fascinating character, and how he's gotten to where he is. And isn't. And we meet Hana: a sweet, smart, first-generation Japanese American artist with whom he had made a blissful life. But now she's gone. Did Asterios do something to drive her away? What has happened to her? Is she even alive? All the questions will be answered, eventually. In the meantime, we are enthralled by Mazzucchelli's extraordinarily imagined world of brilliantly conceived eccentrics, sharply observed social mores, and deftly depicted asides on everything from design theory to the nature of human perception.Asterios Polyp is David Mazzucchelli's masterpiece: a great American graphic novel. Review Quotes "Mazzucchelli manages to combine breathless formal experimentation and read feeling into a story where every line, color choice, and panel arrangement builds toward a cohesive whole, lending an air of epic proportions to what would otherwise be a simple tale." -Library Journal "This is an epic, emotionally rich, symbol-laden work that promises to redefine the graphic novel...David Mazzucchelli has made a beautiful, elaborate construction that coyly juggles style and content in a way few cartoonists are capable of." -Globe and Mail"This brazenly original and complex work is easily one of the year's best novels, graphic or otherwise...Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant." -San Jose Mercury News "David Mazzucchelli's boldly ambitious, boundary-pushing graphic novel is remarkable for the way it synthesizes word and image to craft a new kind of storytelling, and for how it makes that synthesis seem so intuitive as to render it invisible...Asterios Polyp is a fast, fun read, but it's also a work that has been carefully wrought to take optimum advantage of comics' hybrid nature -- it's a tale that could only be told on the knife-edge where text and art come seamlessly together." -NPR's The Five Best Books to Share with Your Friends "As ever, Mazzucchelli keeps both the visual and storytelling fireworks coming...This is a work that demands to be read, re-read, analyzed, and discussed."--Comics Bulletin "Formally daring yet stylistically self-assured, Asterios Polyp is a bona fide masterpiece and the early frontrunner for best graphic novel of the year...It's the presentation-- the use of narrative symbolism, color and visual metaphor--that truly sets the book apart. Much like he did with Year One over 20 years ago, Mazzucchelli has once again raised the bar for his entire artform." -Chicago Sun Times "This is a comic for artists, and it plays with space and color in ways that maybe only artists will understand, but it is a story for everyone, and Asterios Polyp is easily among the best graphic novels ever made. Go read it, and read it twice." -Providence City Paper "Mazzucchelli experiments with numerous art styles and pushes the envelope with challenging digressions into philosophy, religion and mortality throughout Polyp's tale. The engrossing effort culminates with a bombshell that will leave readers reeling." -Toronto Star "In Asterios Polyp -- the best of the summer's new releases -- Mazzucchelli employs spotlights, coloring schemes, knitting, Aristophanes, an identical twin who died at birth and the wide array of secretions from a woman's body to lead us into the self-centered world of the title character even as the center implodes.... Asterios Polyp is a primer for both the fervent possibilities and the rich rewards of the graphic novel."--Portland Oregonian "Now, after a decade-and-a-half, he has re-re-emerged with Asterios Polyp, an epic, emotionally rich, symbol-laden work that promises to redefine the graphic novel. Published by Pantheon Books (home to master-class cartoonists such as Art Spiegelman, Chris Ware and Dan Clowes), Asterios Polyp is Mazzucchelli's first graphic novel. It is also happens to be his masterpiece, the culmination of 25 years of promise....Mazzucchelli has made a beautiful, elaborate construction that coyly juggles style and content in a way few cartoonists are capable of."--Globe and Mail (Canada) "The beauty of Asterios Polyp is that its core tenet, the need to pay attention to life as it happens, is so well reflected in the book itself--in its lush paper tone and rough-hewn, elegant design--and in the way all the formal devices serve the story. As such, it rewards attention and even devotion." -Bookforum "The more you study Polyp, the more there is to discover. This is a book that stands with works by Updike, Roth, and other giants of American literature. It is undoubtedly one of the best novels of the year." -The Stranger "Asterios Polyp is a perfect marriage of words and pictures. Every drawing, color choice and panel layout is pregnant with meaning." -Columbus Dispatch"Mazzuchelli is using color to convey ideas in a way not attempted by most graphic novelists. The book is all about style, design and visual language, and Mazzuchelli is moving the discussion of all of these forward with Asterios Polyp." -Matt Price's best graphic novels of 2009 Asterios Polyp will cause comic-book buffs to swoon, sure, but the narrative -- after a fire, an arrogant architect slowly begins to rebuild his own life -- makes it much more than a pretty picture book." -Modern Tonic "What Mazzucchelli accomplishes, though, with remarkable clarity and a jazzy pop-culture eye, and which the written word has a tougher time with, is portraying silence, moments between something said and something to come -- even thought itself. That sticks; those last pages are as tender and heartbreaking a portrait of lost time as I can recall, and no less powerful for being nearly wordless" -Chicago Tribune "Critics have decried the modern graphic novel's focus on form at the expense of content. With Asterios Polyp, Mazzucchelli has put paid to that charge: It's funny, it's warm and it's beautiful. Go read it." -Newsday.com "It contains a relatively simple story (and probably a deceptively simple one), but told in a dazzlingly stunning array of comic book techniques not possible in other mediums. Mazzucchelli is a genius of the form." -Forbidden Planet"Each panel is a moment in the story that when connected to other panels becomes part of a scene or sequence that is rich in storytelling and fertile with ideas, inquiry, and themes." -ComicBookBin, A+ review "Visually, Asterios Polyp is the lushest comic of the year--maybe of the last the 10 years, a decade not exactly thin on astounding cartooning. Mazzucchelli's work has all but abandoned the realistic musculature and architecture that made him stand out from his superhero peers. Asterios Polyp feels like three or four cartoonists working in concert, often on the same page, all of them firmly working on the stylized end of comics' spectrum." -Baltimore City Paper "This fan of the novel is an ever bigger fan of the magic that happens in comics, and only in comics, when text and art work together to create something wholly, wonderfully new. In books like Jimmy Corrigan -- and the just released ASTERIOS POLYP by David Mazzucchelli, it happens on every. Single. Page."--NPR.ORG "This absorbing, idiosyncratic tale of love, ambition and opportunity marks the return of one of the modern masters of graphic storytelling."--Miami Herald "You'll be in awe of how perfect it is and certainly envious of it if you are a writer. What a beautiful, staggeringly brilliant piece of literature."--Contra Costa Times 'The book is a satirical comedy of remarriage, a treatise on aesthetics and design and ontology, a late-life Künstlerroman, a Novel of Ideas with two capital letters, and just about the most schematic work of fiction this side of that other big book that constantly alludes to the "Odyssey.".... "Asterios Polyp" is a dazzling, expertly constructed entertainment, even as it's maddening and even suffocating at times. It demands that its audience wrestle with it, argue with it, reread and re-examine it. Isn't that the ultimate purpose of style?'--Douglas Wolk, NYTBR "Heady with philosophical and mythological references, Asterios Polyp vaults Mazzucchelli into the top rank of graphic artists. It's a sweeping, provocative book that blends the richness of the traditional novel with the best modern art. Mazzucchelli's style - effortless and so versatile that you can't imagine Asterios in any other medium - is sweeping in every sense."--Boston Globe "It's a remarkable, bravura achievement - funny, harrowing and thought-provoking."--San Francisco Chronicle A dazzling expertly constructed entertainment...that is a satirical comedy of remarriage, a treatise on aesthetics and design and ontology, late life Künstlerroman, a Novel of Ideas with two capital letters... -The New York Times Book Review "Asterios Polyp reads like an intricately designed and heartfelt work of metafiction, juggling design theory, philosophy and sly nods to other cartoonists to create a dryly funny masterpiece."--Time Out New York "It's as if John Updike had discovered a bag of art supplies and LSD. Elegant, deceptively simple line work and nearly subliminal color symbolism make everything go down like candy. The narrative comes back to earth for a profoundly satisfying climax, but you'll want to keep turning pages - all the way back to the beginning, for another read. -Entertainment Weekly "Haunting and beautiful."--Los Angeles Times The simplicity of that facile summary, along with the deceptively cartoony drawing style Mazzucchelli has adopted for the work, makes it easy to miss its genuine accomplishment. The sparseness of his illustration gives necessary clarity to his complex storytelling, which employs intricate and imaginative panel arrangements and a constantly shifting chronology.meticulously constructed.It's a testimony to Mazzucchelli's skills that by the end of Polyp's odyssey, the arrogant academic has been rendered a tragic and sympathetic figure deserving of the tale's (possibly) happy ending. -Gordon Flagg, Booklist "I was completely blown away by Asterios Polyp, David Mazzucchelli's latest comic book, a pull-out-all-the-stops package that's funny, poignant and deep, with panels of thoughtfully shaded images that form a visual novel, a paper movie, and finally, an existential meditation on things that matter to us: religion, art, science, love and memory."--Pop Culture Nerd "Mazzucchelli's masterwork is by no means an easy read...but it is a transcendent one."--Austin Chronicle "The comics world is abuzz over Mazzucchelli's first solo book, Asterios Polyp. Rightly so: It's terrific."--New York Magazine "A sprawling work about the life and loves of a middle-aged, philandering architect who loses everything in a fire. The coming release has been compared to the idiosyncratic work of Thomas Pynchon."--Wall Street Journal "An absolutely incredible piece of visual communication."--Portland Mercury "Easily one of the best books of 2009 already.--Publishers Weekly "A visual and even philosophical stunner.--Kirkus "One of the greatest comics of all time." --Comic Book Resources "We can all stop reading comics now, because David Mazzucchelli's crafted the ultimate comic book statement. Just take everything on your reading pile right now and chuck it out. Asterios Polyp is the new standard bearer. Mazzucchelli has somehow managed to jam just about everything great about comics into 340 pages of humanity, soul-searching, graphic design, philosophy and humor."--Newsarama "Asterios Polyp is the work of a veteran artist firing on all cylinders, who, despite having worked his way through the sequential art ringer for a few decades now, has managed to craft something remarkably fresh."--Daily Cross Hatch "One of the smartest and most rewarding graphic novels of the year to date."--Pop Matters "Mazzucchelli manages to combine breathless formal experimentation and read feeling into a story where every line, color choice, and panel arrangement builds toward a cohesive whole, lending an air of epic proportions to what would otherwise be a simple tale." -Library Journal "Mazzucchelli is a gifted artist/writer, and as a reader moves through the lush and varied pages of Asterios Polyp, stylistic surprises abound amid what feels like a master lesson in the form and function of design. He delivers a truly transformative tale of love and trust." -World Literature Today About the Author David Mazzucchelli has been making comics his whole life. Known chiefly for his collaborations - with Frank Miller on seminal Batman and Daredevil stories, and with Paul Karasik on an adaptation of Paul Auster's novel, City of Glass - he began publishing his own stories in 1991 in his anthology magazine, Rubber Blanket. Since then his short comics have been published in books and magazines around the world. Asterios Polyp is his first graphic novel, and has won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and been listed as a New York Times notable book.

Book Synopsis The definitive graphic novel adaptation of Dune, the groundbreaking science-fiction classic by Frank Herbert Dune, Frank Herbert's epic science-fiction masterpiece set in the far future amidst a sprawling feudal interstellar society, tells the story of Paul Atreides as he and his family accept control of the desert planet Arrakis. A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism, and politics, Dune is a powerful, fantastical tale that takes an unprecedented look into our universe, and is transformed by the graphic novel format.

Anderson's adaptation retains the story's integrity, and Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín's magnificent illustrations, along with cover art by Bill Sienkiewicz, bring the book to life for a new generation of readers. Review Quotes "Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín take a dense story and apply all that nuance and subtext to their visual language in adapting Dune. Panels establish scope and geography, and showcase the character who has the power in a scene, all the while guiding you as if you were on a theme park ride through the wild sci-fi action of warring families and giant sand worms. These two have pulled off a rare feat and made a political tale visually compelling."--Eric Heisserer "Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Arrival" "A much-needed addition to the series started by Frank Herbert decades ago."-- "The Nerd Daily" "Intricate . . . well defined . . . easy to follow . . . blending the aristocratic costumery, sci-fi technology, and desert landscape into a world that is unmistakably Dune."-- "Booklist" "The carefully chosen color palettes are particularly compelling, conveying the perfect sense of mood in every situation...a good gateway into the world of Dune."-- "Boing Boing" "The core of what made Dune a great science fiction novel has been preserved, and to it are added vibrant visuals in Dune: The Graphic Novel, Book 1--a resoundingly successful adaptation." -- "Foreword STARRED Review" "...a breathtaking new comic book adaptation."-- "SPACE.com" "...an adaptation worthy of continuing the franchise's legacy for a new generation."-- "Comic Book Resources" "It's Dune, but easier on the eyes...That means you can indulge a bit here, taking time to remind yourself of what makes the original source material so good..."-- "Polygon" "The palette practically makes Arrakis' blazing heat and desolation jump off the page...This art is gorgeous."-- "Nerdist" "Boasting eye-popping art from Raúl Allén and Patricia Martin... Dune: The Graphic Novel is a scene-by-scene adaptation of the beloved novel from two writers who are already very familiar with the worlds of Arrakis and beyond."-- "The Hollywood Reporter" "...it excels in broad action shots, such as the first spotting of a massive sandworm maw. This efficient take will whet appetites for more adventures to come."-- "Publishers Weekly" About The Author Frank Herbert (1920-86) was the author of Dune and its five sequels, as well as numerous other highly praised novels.

Mari Andrew started doodling when she worked at a bakery--she took some license with the display case labels. When customers noticed and began telling her the drawings brightened their days, Mari realized she could use that hobby to connect with people. She hit a professional rough patch in her late 20s and began to chronicle her work on Instagram. Nearly overnight, she became a sensation. Now when Mari Andrew posts something new, the Internet rejoices. This book is organized by universal themes of becoming an adult--for example, loss, adventure, ambition. Within each chapter, Mari shares her personal experiences in never-before-seen essays, accompanied by spreads of her signature illustrations, 90 percent of which are brand new. Readers are bound to see some of themselves in this book, whether seeking advice on how to handle growing up, or just looking for a friend who can commiserate"-- Book Synopsis NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - This on-point guide to growing up by Instagram sensation Mari Andrew features "achingly vulnerable and completely relatable watercolor illustrations about relationships, heartbreak and the struggles of urban life" (The Washington Post). In the journey toward adulthood, it is easy to find yourself treading the path of those who came before you; the path often appears straight and narrow, with a few bumps in the road and a little scenery to keep you inspired. But what if you don't want to walk a worn path? What if you want to wander? What if there is no map to guide you through the detours life throws your way? From creating a home in a new city to understanding the link between a good hair dryer and good self-esteem to dealing with the depths of heartache and loss, these tales of the twentysomething document a road less traveled--a road that sometimes is just the way you're meant to go.

Book Synopsis Enter once more the world of Roland Deschain--and the world of the Dark Tower...now presented in a stunning graphic novel form that will unlock the doorways to terrifying secrets and bold storytelling as part of the dark fantasy masterwork and magnum opus from #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King. "The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed." With these unforgettable words, millions of readers were introduced to Stephen King's iconic character Roland Deschain of Gilead. Roland is the last of his kind, a "gunslinger" charged with protecting whatever goodness and light remains in his world--a world that "moved on," as they say. In this desolate reality--a dangerous land filled with ancient technology and deadly magic, and yet one that mirrors our own in frightening ways--Roland is on a spellbinding and soul-shattering quest to locate and somehow save the mystical nexus of all worlds, all universes: the Dark Tower. Now, in the graphic novel series Stephen King's The Dark Tower: Beginnings, originally published by Marvel Comics in single-issue form and creatively overseen by Stephen King himself, the full story of Roland's troubled past and coming-of-age is revealed. Sumptuously drawn by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove, plotted by longtime Stephen King expert Robin Furth, and scripted by New York Times bestselling author Peter David, Beginnings is an extraordinary and terrifying journey into Roland's origins--ultimately serving as the perfect introduction for new readers to Stephen King's modern literary classic The Dark Tower, while giving longtime fans thrilling adventures merely hinted at in his blockbuster novels. Roland Deschain of Gilead and his ka-tet of Cuthbert Allgood and Alain Johns may have finally returned home, but all is not well in the crown jewel of Mid-World. Roland has voluntarily kept the stolen evil seeing sphere nicknamed "Maerlyn's Grapefruit"--lost in his obsession with peering into its pinkish depths, despite the devastating toll it takes on his health...and what the young gunslinger sees within the glass heralds the darkest of nightmares. Meanwhile, all around him, danger lurks in every form, as the shocking and horrific machinations of Gilead's sworn enemy, "the Good Man" John Farson, threatens all Roland holds dear and in ways he could never imagine...the cruel hand of fate about to push him inexorably closer along the path to the Dark Tower.
