<DIV><P> In this chronological collection, readers get a close-up view inside the home of the MacPhersons, a perfectly normal family with perfectly chaotic lives.

MAD ABOUT TRUMP: A BRILLIANT LOOK AT OUR BRAINLESS PRESIDENT is an all-out comedy assault on the most idiotic idiot to ever reach the White House (George W. Bush and visitors included)! In these 128 pages, President Trump is mercilessly mocked, relentlessly ridiculed and savagely satirized. <br /> <br />The book features MAD's best reprinted material with the sharpest satiric shots at "The Donald," comically chronicling his rise from obnoxious businessman to really obnoxious reality show host to über-obnoxious "Commander-in-Tweet." <br /><br /> Please note: MAD will not offer refunds on this book when Trump is impeached! <br /><br /> This title also includes a new introduction by CNN's Jake Tapper!

<DIV>The <I>Pearls </I>gang returns with characteristically misanthropic humor (but with more leather): no self-aggrandizing is too flagrant for Rat, no subject is too erudite for Goat, and no sensory input is too basic for Pig.<BR /> <BR />All topics are fair game for Stephan Pastis and his brass-knuckle punch lines. Comic strip censors, apathetic baristas, and IRS employees are all strongly advised to laugh or get out of the way.<BR /><BR /><I>Pearls Hogs the Road</I> also features three comic strips illustrated by the legendary Bill Watterson of <I>Calvin and Hobbes</I>, who ended a 19-year hiatus from the comics page to collaborate with Pastis.<BR /> <BR /> </DIV>

American popular culture has produced few heroic figures as famous and enduring as that of the Batman. The dark, mysterious hero who debuted in 1939's DETECTIVE COMICS #27 as the lone "Bat-man" quickly grew into the legend of the Caped Crusader. After his landmark debut and origin story the Dark Knight was given many seminal elements including his partner in crime-fighting Robin, the Boy Wonder, and such adversaries as the Joker, Hugo Strange and Catwoman. <br /><br />BATMAN: THE GOLDEN AGE VOLUME ONE collects all of the Dark Knight Detective's first-ever adventures from DETECTIVE COMICS #27-45, BATMAN #1-3 and NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR COMICS #2.

FRASES INTERESSANTES é uma obra de Fábio Braga, reconhecido por suas máximas inseridas em contextos diversos, como no premiado conto Garçom Filósofo. Este é um livro de 180 páginas de encher os olhos do mais ferrenho crítico literário. E por que este e-book é tão bom assim? É porque ninguém até hoje conseguiu fazer cerca de 500 Frases de impacto e contextualizá-las da forma mais espetacular possível.<br />Para Filosofar no Bar 3<br />GARÇOM FILÓSOFO <br />No paradisíaco litoral de Alagoas, debaixo de um coqueiral extenso, havia uma palhoça que, aos domingos de sol forte, enchia de banhistas. Era o bar do seu Manoel, que de mané não tinha nada. Fiado ele cortava a estranhos e àqueles fregueses assíduos só vendia para pagar depois por motivo de consideração, e dos bônus que ao longo dos tempos acumularam. Mas o que chamava mesmo a atenção do bar do seu Manoel não era o tira-gosto quentinho assado na brasa nem a cerveja geladinha, tirada da freezer vertical. <br />Geralmente, o freguês costumava dar o ar da sua graça por lá com o fino propósito de ler as frases do garçom Lulinha, carinhosamente apelidado de <br />o garçom filósofo. <br />No papelzinho da conta, o senhor das letras deixava para cada cliente uma mensagem especial, gostasse ou não da profundidade das palavras. Ao pessoal que ali frequentava reparando a vida dos outros, dizendo que um é magro, outro é gordo, naquele deboche danado, macaco velho em como tratar elemento dessa qualidade, o filósofo sacava a caneta do bolso da camisa branca, escrevia algo, e fazia aterrissar de bico o bilhetinho bem em cima da mesa dos preconceituosos, com uma lapada literária, tal como: “Há os que erram porque querem saber, os que erram porque não sabem o que querem e ainda os que sabem o que querem, mas mesmo assim erram”. <br />Para a turma que bebe elogiando em excesso o serviço do bar, como quem no final vai pedir outra cerveja para pagar no dia de são nunca, Lulinha, vacinado contra freguês que ajeita a gravatinha borboleta do garçom com segundas intenções, a porrada cultural para que o sangue de velhaco não gastasse além da quantia <br />que trouxe em sua carteira: “Quem embarca em navios de promessas se vê ancorado em ilhas da fantasia” <br />E nas vezes que o bar ficava com cara de que seguiria noite adentro, a lua sorrindo lá do alto, seu Manoel pondo a dentadura para sorrir também, por causa dos cornos que levam chifre, mas gastam, Lulinha pelos cornos é solicitado: - Filósofo, escreve aí na cadernetinha algo que me faça esquecer a amada, porque as canções bregas não funcionaram... Doutor em resolver problemas dessa natureza, e como cada caso de corno é um caso, para aliviar o fardo dos chifres no quengo de trabalhador braçal, Lulinha tacava-lhes um torpedo popular: “Sexo não se faz por favor; sexo se faz por amor” Mas se visse que o camarada era um corno culto, abria mão daquela máxima e enviava uma outra, altamente filosofada: “Amigo, não somos nada e concomitantemente somos tudo; porque se, para uns, inexistimos, sem nós, outros não existiriam; se somos, para uns, apenas uns a mais no mundo, para outros, em seu mundo, somos os únicos a existir” <br />A sua prática de colocar no bloco de anotações máximas e frases feitas de improviso, a todos, impressionava pela originalidade. Muitos gaiatos, para desmascará-lo, espichavam os olhos até o limite da visão apenas para terem certeza absoluta de que Lulinha não ia penetrar na cozinha, de pontinhas de pés, apto a uma ação maquiavélica de copiar tudo de algum livro de grandes mestres pensadores, escondido entre a comida do armário… mas, nada de truques, tudo saía mesmo do crânio privilegiado desse doutor honóris-causa. <br />Um prato cheio para a imprensa escrita e televisada <br />E volta e meia aparecia repórter de todos os cantos, um brigando com o outro, naquele empurra-empurra de microfone e câmera de televisão, tudo para agendar entrevistas furo-de-reportagem com o mago da bandeja iluminada. <br />...a coisa foi indo, foi indo, e sua fama chegou até em Portugal <br />
