Suffering under the tyrannical rule of Lord Chaos, a group of rebels calling themselves Team Titans travel back in time to prevent the birth of their frenzied overlord and save their future. Their plan is simple: kill Chaos before he’s even born. What they didn’t plan for was Chaos’ mother being Donna Troy—a founding member of the Teen Titans and friend to the New Titans—or for Chaos himself to follow the team into the past!<br /><br /> The New Titans must now divide their attention between defending Troy’s life from the mysterious Team Titans and fulfilling their initial mission of tracking and capturing Deathstroke, the Terminator. Amidst all the fighting, neither Titans team nor the legendary assassin anticipates Chaos’ arrival and the plan he has to ensure his birth and reign of chaotic terror! Can the Titans of the present and future work together to defeat the coming chaos? Or will their bickering be the beginning of their end?<br /><br /> From comics author Marv Wolfman (Nightwing, The New Teen Titans) and artists Tom Grummett (Superboy), Kevin Maguire (Doom Patrol), Art Nichols (Justice League America) and more, Titans: Total Chaos will keep you on the edge of your seat! This volume collects together for the first time ever Deathstroke, the Terminator #14-16, New Titans #90-92 and Team Titans #1-3.

Degradation! Crime! Madness! Hysteria surrounded marijuana as a perceived gateway drug from the 1930's to the 1950's and beyond. <i>Adventure Comics</i>, by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, and works by Frank Frazetta, Jerry Robinson, Jack Kirby, and many more, reveal the social reaction to this era of "Reefer Madness". Like the anti-drug propaganda film, these stories range from comically misinformed to soberly concerned about the influence of Mary Jane on the youth of America. Eisner and Harvey Award winner Craig Yoe brings us his newest collection of wacky, wild, and culturally relevant comics.<br /><br />See how marijuana was perceived in the days of ignorance before it was legalized by the visionary people of Oregon, Washington, and Colorado!<br /><br />See marijuana demonized as a "Satan's cigarettes" in 1950's comics!

Battling bad guys. High-tech hideouts. The gratitude of the masses. Who at some point in their life hasn't dreamed of being a superhero? Impossible, right? Or is it? Possessing no supernatural powers, Batman is the most realistic of all the superheroes. His feats are achieved through rigorous training and mental discipline, and with the aid of fantastic gadgets. Drawing on his training as a neuroscientist, kinesiologist, and martial artist, E. Paul Zehr explores the question: Could a mortal ever become Batman? Zehr discusses the physical training necessary to maintain bad-guy-fighting readiness while relating the science underlying this process, from strength conditioning to the cognitive changes a person would endure in undertaking such a regimen. In probing what a real-life Batman could achieve, Zehr considers the level of punishment a consummately fit and trained person could handle, how hard and fast such a person could punch and kick, and the number of adversaries that individual could dispatch. He also tells us what it would be like to fight while wearing a batsuit and the amount of food we'd need to consume each day to maintain vigilance as Gotham City's guardian. A fun foray of escapism grounded in sound science, Becoming Batman provides the background for attaining the realizable -- though extreme -- level of human performance that would allow you to be a superhero.
