A timeless story rediscovered by each new generation, <i>The Diary of a Young Girl </i>stands without peer. For both young readers and adults it continues to capture the remarkable spirit of Anne Frank, who for a time survived the worst horror the modern world has seen—and who remained triumphantly and heartbreakingly human throughout her ordeal.<br />  <br /> Adapted by Ari Folman, illustrated by David Polonsky, and authorized by the Anne Frank Foundation in Basel, this is the first graphic edition of <i>The Diary </i>and includes extensive quotation directly from the definitive edition. It remains faithful to the original, while the stunning illustrations interpret and add layers of visual meaning and immediacy to this classic work of Holocaust literature.

<b>A <i>New York Times</i> bestseller</b><br /><br /><b>The original graphic novel adapted into the film <i>Blue Is the Warmest Color</i>, winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival</b><br /><br />In this tender, bittersweet, full-color graphic novel, a young woman named Clementine discovers herself and the elusive magic of love when she meets a confident blue-haired girl named Emma: a lesbian love story for the ages that bristles with the energy of youth and rebellion and the eternal light of desire.<br /><br />First published in France by Glénat, the book has won several awards, including the Audience Prize at the Angoulême International Comics Festival, Europe's largest.<br /><br />The live-action, French-language film version of the book, entitled <i>Blue Is the Warmest Color</i>, won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2013. Directed by director Abdellatif Kechiche and starring Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos, the film generated both wide praise and controversy. It will be released in the US through Sundance Selects/IFC Films.<br /><br /><b>Julie Maroh</b> is an author and illustrator originally from northern France.<br /><br />"Julie Maroh, who was just 19 when she started the comic, manages to convey the excitement, terror, and obsession of young love—and to show how wildly teenagers swing from one extreme emotion to the next ... Ultimately, Blue Is the Warmest Color is a sad story about loss and heartbreak, but while Emma and Clementine’s love lasts, it’s exhilarating and sustaining." —<i>Slate.com</i><br /><br />"A beautiful, moving graphic novel." —<i>Wall Street Journal</i><br /><br />"<i>Blue Is the Warmest Color</i> captures the entire life of a relationship in affecting and honest style." —<i>Comics Worth Reading</i><br /><br />"Delicate linework conveys wordless longing in this graphic novel about a lesbian relationship." —<i>New York Times Book Review</i> <b>(Editor's Choice)</b><br /><br />"A tragic yet beautifully wrought graphic novel." —<i>Salon.com</i><br /><br />"Love is a beautiful punishment in Maroh’s paean to confusion, passion, and discovery ... An elegantly impassioned love story." —<i>Publishers Weekly</i> (STARRED REVIEW)<br /><br />"A lovely and wholehearted coming-out story ... the illustrations are infused with genuine, raw feeling. Wide-eyed Clementine wears every emotion on her sleeve, and teens will understand her journey perfectly." —<i>Kirkus Reviews </i><br /><br />"The electric emotions of falling in love and the difficult process of self-acceptance will resonate with all readers ... Maroh’s use of color is deliberate enough to be eye-catching in a world of grey tones, with Emma’s bright blue hair capturing Clementine’s imagination, but is used sparingly enough that it supports and blends naturally with the story." —<i>Library Journal</i> (STARRED REVIEW)<br /><br />"It's not just the French who have a better handle on sexy material than Americans -- Canadians do, too ... Who's publishing it? Not an American publishing house but by Arsenal Pulp Press, a Canadian independent." —<i>Los Angeles Times</i><br />

Ce personnage immortel parcourt depuis 1947 (44 ans !) l'histoire de l'ouest américain. Il y a rencontré des personnages célèbres (Jesse James, Calamity Jane, Billy the Kid, Sarah Bernhardt...). Lucky Luke est l'homme des missions impossibles, le défenseur des pauvres, des veuves et des orphelins, bref le parfait héros ! Son cheval, Jolly Jumper, est un parfait compagnon de ce poor lonesome cowboy. Les frères Dalton se dressent perpétuellement sur le chemin de Lucky Luke ce qui permet à ce dernier de les poursuivre continuellement et de les confier à la justice. Autre personnage traditionnel de la série : Rantanplan, le chien le plus bête du farwest qui a vécut de façon autonome 2 albums. Lucky Luke est, avec Astérix et Tintin, le plus célèbre personnage de l'histoire de la BD : cette série, accessible à tous, est devenu un mythe grâce à Morris et Goscinny. Ce personnage a fait l'essentiel de sa formidable carrière dans les pages de SPIROU, PILOTE et LE JOURNAL DE LUCKY LUKE. Une exploitation merchandising et audiovisuelle (dont aux États-Unis) a permis d'introduire Lucky Luke auprès d'une très large couche de la population et auprès de plusieurs générations de lecteurs. A noter qu'après la disparition de Goscinny, plusieurs scénaristes ont travaillé sur la série : Vicq, De Groot, Fauche et Léturgie, Lodewijk, Lo Hartog Van Banda et Vidal. L'essentiel des albums se trouvent chez Dupuis et Dargaud., la nouveauté chez Lucky Productions.

In 1656, Diego Velázquez, leading figure in the Spanish Golden Age of painting, created one of the most enigmatic works in the history of art: Las Meninas (The Ladies-in-Waiting). This graphic novel, written and drawn by two of Spain’s most sophisticated comics creators, examines its legacy as one of the first paintings to explore the relationship among the viewer, reality, and unreality. (It guest stars Cano, Salvador Dalí, Zurbarán, and many others.) Olivares’s art moves from clear line to expressionistic; from pen nib to brush stokes; from one color palette to another, as The Ladies-in-Waiting uses fiction to explore the ties among artists and patrons, the past and the present, institutions and audiences, creators and creativity.

In 17th century Rome, where women are expected to be chaste and yet are viewed as prey by powerful men, the extraordinary painter Artemisia Gentileschi fends off constant sexual advances as she works to become one of the greatest painters of her generation. Frustrated by the hypocritical social mores of her day, Gentileschi releases her anguish through her paintings and, against all odds, becomes a groundbreaking artist. Meticulously rendered in ballpoint pen, this gripping graphic biography serves as an art history lesson and a coming-of-age story. Resonant in the #MeToo era, I Know What I Am highlights a fierce artist who stood up to a shameful social status quo.
