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.

<b>* Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award * </b><b>Silver Medal Society of Illustrators *</b><br /> <br /> <b>* Named a Best Book of the Year by <i>The New York Times,</i> <i>The Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, </i>NPR<i>, </i><i>Comics Beat, The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, </i><i>Kirkus Reviews, </i>and<i> </i><i>Library Journal</i></b><br /> <br /> <b>This<i> </i>“ingenious reckoning with the past” (<i>The</i> <i>New York Times</i>), by award-winning artist Nora Krug investigates the hidden truths of her family’s wartime history in Nazi Germany.</b><br /><br />Nora Krug was born decades after the fall of the Nazi regime, but the Second World War cast a long shadow over her childhood and youth in the city of Karlsruhe, Germany. Yet she knew little about her own family’s involvement; though all four grandparents lived through the war, they never spoke of it.<br /> <br /> After twelve years in the US, Krug realizes that living abroad has only intensified her need to ask the questions she didn’t dare to as a child. Returning to Germany, she visits archives, conducts research, and interviews family members, uncovering in the process the stories of her maternal grandfather, a driving teacher in Karlsruhe during the war, and her father’s brother Franz-Karl, who died as a teenage SS soldier. In this extraordinary quest, “Krug erases the boundaries between comics, scrapbooking, and collage as she endeavors to make sense of 20th-century history, the Holocaust, her German heritage, and her family's place in it all” (<i>The Boston Globe</i>). A highly inventive, “thoughtful, engrossing” (<i>Minneapolis Star-Tribune</i>) graphic memoir, <i>Belonging</i> “packs the power of Alison Bechdel’s <i>Fun Home </i>and David Small’s <i>Stitches</i>” (NPR.org).

<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 />

Oscar Award-winning writer/director and Django creator Quentin Tarantino teams with Eisner Award-winning comic book creator Matt Wagner to write the official Django Unchained sequel, uniting the gun-blazing Western hero with the legendary swordsman of literature, film, and comics: Zorro! Set several years after the events of Django Unchained, Django again pursues evil men in his role as a bounty hunter. Taking to the roads of the American Southwest, he encounters the aged and sophisticated Diego de la Vega by sheer chance. Django is fascinated by this unusual character, the first wealthy white man he's met who seems totally unconcerned with the color of his skin... and who can hold his own in a fight. Django hires on as Diego's bodyguard, and is soon drawn into a fight to free the local indigenous people from brutal servitude. Learning much from the older man (as he did from King Schultz), he discovers that slavery isn't exclusive to his people, as he even dons the mask of Zorro in their mission of mercy!<br /><br />Collects Django/Zorry #1-7!
