Customer Reviews
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.

The first graphic novel adaptation of the work of master storyteller Louis L’Amour is a dynamic tale of the Old West that explores the borderlands of loyalty and betrayal with the emotional grittiness of a noir thriller.<br />  <br /> New Mexico, 1887, a land in the midst of the worst drought anyone can remember. Family histories and loyalties run deep, but when rancher Tom Forrester has his access to the Pecos River cut off by the son of his old partner, he convinces his foreman, Shad Marone, to pay Jud Bowman back for the discourtesy. Yet what starts as a simple act of petty revenge quickly spirals into a cycle of violence that no one can control.<br />  <br /> Now Marone is on the run, pursued by a sheriff’s posse across a rugged desert landscape. Leading the chase is Jesus Lopez, a half-Mexican, half-Apache with a personal stake in bringing Shad to justice. Newly released from jail, trusted by no one, Lopez swears he’s the only man who can track Marone down. That may be true. But who will live and who will die and what price will be paid in suffering are open questions. Fate and the Jornada del Muerto desert possess a harsh justice that is all their own.<br />  <br /> With a propulsive script from Beau L’Amour and Kathy Nolan, adapted by Charles Santino and illustrated in bold black-and-white by Thomas Yeates, <i>Law of the Desert Born</i> captures the dust and blood of Louis L’Amour’s West—a world where the difference between a hero and a villain can be as wide as the gap between an act of kindness or brutality or as narrow as a misspoken word.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Law of the Desert Born</i></b><br />  <br /> “This actually may be the story’s ideal form, since the author’s son Beau came to realize that the core of the tale was the tense relationship between [Marone] and Lopez. . . . The graphic novel version provides room to develop this theme. Yeates’s black-and-white depiction of the rugged landscape and the hard-bitten characters is superb. The result is stunning and richly textured.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly<br /></i></b><br />“[An] interesting tale of range rivalries turned bloody . . . Fans of L’Amour’s stories should enjoy this work, adults or teens.”<b>—<i>Library Journal</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “Readers are in for a real treat—with an amazing level of detail and ambience that breathes new life into Louis L’Amour’s already stunning story.”<b>—<i>Cowboys & Indians</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “A masterpiece both in story and art that complements the mood.”<b>—<i>It’s All Comic to Me</i></b>

<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 />

In this seventh issue of Ghost Rider we find the following heroic, ghoulish stories...<br />A fanged demon curses the dead in "The Haunted Tomb". Beware zombie gun slingers in "League of the Living Dead". The white werewolf hopes to sink his fangs in another victim in "The Bloody Fangs of Fear". So life-like, and yet so murderous are the wax creations in "The Murder In Wax" plus vintage advertisements.<br /><br />Ghost Rider is an exciting blend of horror and spaghetti-Western hero invented by Ray Krank and artist Dick Ayers in 1949. Ghost Rider is the original inspiration for a different, non-horror, comic where his horse was swapped for a motorcycle.<br /><br />Enjoy a nostalgic trip down memory lane with the best titles from the golden age of comics. Yojimbo Press has lovingly remastered these timeless classics with vivid color correction, image restoration and has also added an enhanced reading experience with Kindle Panel View.

An extraordinary and inventive graphic biography, Steffen Kverneland's  Munch explores the relationships and obsessions that drove the artist behind 'The Scream'. Using text drawn from the writings of Edvard Munch and his contemporaries, this extensively researched and beautifully drawn graphic novel debunks the familiar myth of the half-mad expressionist painter – anguished, starving and ill-treated – to reveal the artist's neglected sense of humour and optimism. Born out of a life-long fascination with all things Munch, Kverneland's award-winning seven-year project is the funniest and most entertaining portrait yet of a complex man and a pioneering artist.
