<div><p>Julie Maroh's first book, <I>Blue Is the Warmest Color</I>, was a graphic novel phenomenon; it was a <I>New York Times </I>bestseller and the controversial film adaptation by French director Abdellatif Kechiche won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013. Maroh's latest book, Body Music, marks her return to the kind of soft, warm palette and impressionistic sensibility that made her debut book so sensational.</p><BR><p>Set in the languid, European-like neighborhoods of Montreal, <I>Body Music </I>is a beautiful and moving meditation on love and desire as expressed in their many different forms?between women, men, and gender non-conformists alike, all varying in age and race. In twenty separate vignettes, Maroh explores the drama inherent in relationships at different stages: the electricity of initial attraction, the elation of falling in love, the trauma of breaking up, the sweet comfort of a long-standing romance.</p><p>Anyone who's ever been in a relationship will see themselves in these intimate stories tinged with raw emotion. <I>Body Music </I>is an exhilarating and passionate graphic novel about what it means to fall in love, and what it means to be alive.</p><p><B>Julie Maroh </B>studied comic art at the Institute Saint-Luc in Brussels and lithography and engraving at the Royal Academy of Arts in Brussels.

<b>'Queer: A Graphic History Could Totally Change the Way You Think About Sex and Gender' <i>Vice</i></b><br /><br /><br /><br />Activist-academic Meg-John Barker and cartoonist Julia Scheele illuminate the histories of queer thought and LGBTQ+ action in this groundbreaking non-fiction graphic novel.<br /><br /><br /><br />From identity politics and gender roles to privilege and exclusion, Queer explores how we came to view sex, gender and sexuality in the ways that we do; how these ideas get tangled up with our culture and our understanding of biology, psychology and sexology; and how these views have been disputed and challenged.<br /><br /><br /><br />Along the way we look at key landmarks which shift our perspective of what’s ‘normal’ – Alfred Kinsey’s view of sexuality as a spectrum, Judith Butler’s view of gendered behaviour as a performance, the play Wicked, or moments in Casino Royale when we’re invited to view James Bond with the kind of desiring gaze usually directed at female bodies in mainstream media. <br /><br /><br /><br />Presented in a brilliantly engaging and witty style, this is a unique portrait of the universe of queer thinking.

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 ...

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></div>

277 pages!<br /><br />The 30th anniversary Love and Rockets celebration continues with this, the first volume of the Love and Rockets Library collecting the adventures of the spunky Maggie, her annoying best friend and sometimes lover Hopey, and their circle of friends, including their bombshell friend Penny Century, Maggie's weirdo mentor Izzy -- as well as the wrestler Rena Titanon and Maggie's handsome love interest, Rand Race... "Maggie the Mechanic" collects the earliest, punkiest, most heavily sci-fi stories of Maggie and her circle of friends, and you can see the artist (who drew like an angel from the very first panel) refine his approach: Despite these strong shifts in tone, the stunning art and razor sharp characterizations keep this collection consistent, and enthralling throughout. <br /><br />"The Love and Rockets Vol. 1 reprints may be my favorite publishing project of the last five years, and there are a lot of fine projects going on... the smaller, bargain-priced volumes [are] the perfect vehicle for that material, the best comics series of all time." -- Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter

<i>Evil can be seductive...</i><br /><br />Kyle--a closeted, teen superhero who can control fire--has finally summoned up the courage to enter a local gay bar. It's his very first step towards accepting himself.

And the price that The Annihilator demands to keep Kyle's secret will lead Kyle down a path fraught with danger, adventure and unexpected romance. It's a path that will force Kyle to question what it really means to be a hero and will ultimately thrust him and his young teammates into an epic conflict against vastly superior foes.<br /><br /><i>The Young Protectors: Engaging the Enemy</i> is a multi-chapter superhero comic with explosive action, sly comedy, tender romance and powerful drama that both women and men will enjoy.<br /><br /><p><i>This Kindle edition uses Kindle's advanced Panel View technology.
