MBQ Volume 1
$5.08
Description
Omario is a struggling comic book artist in Los Angeles who is pissed off at the world for dismissing his artistic craft as commercial, super-hero dreck. O'Malley is a rookie cop who is also pissed off-at all the young thugs that are making the streets more dangerous by the day. When Omario and O'Malley cross paths with each other, the whole neighborhood almost goes up in smoke, as the frustrations of getting by in this world start to boil over..... MBQ is fast-food from the 'hood at its spiciest. From the creative mind of up-and-coming comic artist Felipe Smith comes this tragi-comic portrait of the great big, burger-fed underbelly of life in the big city.

Aaron & Ahmed
$6.07
Description
An emotional look at the root causes of terrorism from MacArthur Prizewinning author Jay Cantor.

What causes terrorism?

After his fiancee dies during the 9/11 attacks, the question plagues Aaron Goodman. It makes him give up his career as a doctor to become an interrogator/torturer at Guantanamo Bay. And yet, he's still no less obsessed. He begins overseeing experiments of how meme theory might program people into becoming suicide bombers. (Could there be a science behind terrorism?) Still nothing - until he meets Ahmed, a Gitmo prisoner who might know how the jihadists are using a variation of meme theory in their camps.

To finally learn the truth, Aaron and Ahmed's search will take them from Gitmo to the jihadist camps in Pakistan right back to Ground Zero in New York City. But where do Ahmed's real loyalties lie, and will Aaron's exploration into terrorist camps make him as much of a threat as those he's protecting his country against?

Batman: The Long Halloween
$22.19
Description
Christmas. St. Patrick's Day. Easter. As the calendar's days stack up, so do the bodies littered in the streets of Gotham City. A murderer is loose, killing only on holidays. The only man that can stop this fiend? The Dark Knight. In a mystery taking place during Batman's early days of crime fighting, Batman: The Long Halloween is one of the greatest Dark Knight stories ever told.

Working with District Attorney Harvey Dent and Lieutenant James Gordon, Batman races against the calendar as he tries to discover who Holiday is before he claims his next victim each month. A mystery that has the reader continually guessing the identity of the killer, this story also ties into the events that transform Harvey Dent into Batman's deadly enemy, Two-Face.

The magnificent creative team of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale reach their apex in Batman: The Long Halloween. This edition includes original 13-issue series as well as four additional story pages cut from the original series, which are presented fully colored and restored to their place in the story. Also featured are sketches and an introduction by the director and writer of The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan and David Goyer.

Tina's Mouth: An Existential Comic Diary
$5.01
Description
In the tradition of Persepolis and American Born Chinese, a wise and funny high school heroine comes of age.

Tina M., sophomore, is a wry observer of the cliques and mores of Yarborough Academy, and of the foibles of her Southern California intellectual Indian family. She's on a first-name basis with Jean-Paul Sartre, the result of an English honors class assignment to keep an "existential diary."

Keshni Kashyap's compulsively readable graphic novel packs in existential high school drama--from Tina getting dumped by her smart-girl ally to a kiss on the mouth (Tina's mouth, but not technically her first kiss) from a cute skateboarder, Neil Strumminger. And it memorably answers the pressing question: Can an English honors assignment be one fifteen-year-old girl's path to enlightenment?

Rebetiko
$12.37
Description
Rebetiko refers to the fusion of West and East, Greece and Asia Minor, in music. However, to General Metaxas, it is only a reminder of the Turkish influence on his country. The ruthless Greek dictator is determined to crack down on rebetis and their way of life, creating strict censorship. A small group of friends--Rebetiko musicians--wind their way through the Athenian backstreets, ouzeris, and market squares, dodging the police while settling disputes over hashish and women. With music at its heart, the narrative portrays a day in the life of the Rebetiko musicians in Athens in 1936.

Praise for Rebetiko:

"A convincing portrayal of the pressures and pleasures faced by artistic and political outsiders." --Booklist
