<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. Unfortunately for him, his very next step out of the bar places him face-to-face with The Annihilator, "the most dangerous supervillain in the world." 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.

It's time for the heroes to make their comeback! Decades after the last caped hero prowled the streets of the futuristic, noir-influenced Justice City, dead bodies are literally falling out of the sky. Retired superhero-turned police DETECTIVE ALVIN EYE finds a startling connection to his own past--the bodies are those of old supervillains called SERIALS. As the mystery looms over Detective Eye and his long-retired allies in the disbanded super team, the POWER SOCIETY, a young hero named JASON BRONZE emerges onto the scene--seemingly through time and from decades in the past. The amnesiac teen connects with HARROWING, the Native American grandson of another elderly hero and soon discovers his own past is intertwined with the legacy of the last generation. With ghastly villains re-emerging and targeting the older heroes, the boy must overcome his twisted origins to become this generation's leader as the pulp-inspired teenage hero, TEEN OWL! But even if he can somehow manage to control his strange, chilling powers and unite a new team of YOUNG WARDS, not even the time-displaced Jason can escape the jaw-dropping reason he's stuck in the future and why he's never coming back!<br /><br />The extra-length premiere issue of YOUNG WARDS not only launches the rebooted OsbournDraw Comics line, but introduces readers of previous OWLVERSE comics to new and reimagined characters in an edgy drama that mixes the world of superheroes with pulp-style adventure in an ongoing series.<br />

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

<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.

The first chapter in the all-new adventures of MIDNIGHTER joins renowned writer Steve Orlando and acclaimed artists Aco, Stephen Mooney and Alec Morgan.<br /><br />Between the supercomputer wired into his brain and the enhancements saturating his body, the living weapon known as Midnighter doesn’t face a lot of real challenges to his uncanny combat skills. Lucky for him, he enjoys beating the tar out of low-level bad guys as much as the high-end ones—and since his recent breakup with his first love (and fellow superhuman) Apollo, he’s had plenty of chances to engage in his unique brand of physical therapy.<br /><br />Now, insanely dangerous weapons are beginning to pop up all over the globe, wreaking havoc on society and complicating Midnighter’s professional and personal life. As the outbreaks pile up, tracking them back to the original thief becomes an overriding imperative .<br /><br />Collects MIDNIGHTER #1-7.

Yaichi is a work-at-home suburban dad in contemporary Tokyo; formerly married to Natsuki, father to their young daughter, Kana. Their lives suddenly change with the arrival at their doorstep of a hulking, affable Canadian named Mike Flanagan, who declares himself the widower of Yaichi’s estranged gay twin, Ryoji. Mike is on a quest to explore Ryoji’s past, and the family reluctantly but dutifully takes him in. What follows is an unprecedented and heartbreaking look at the state of a largely still-closeted Japanese gay culture: how it’s been affected by the West, and how the next generation can change the preconceptions about it and prejudices against it.<br /><br /><i>(Please note: This book is a traditional work of manga, and reads back to front and right to left.)</i>

<h2> Smart guy-on-guy sci-fi.</h2><br /><h3> Listed by The Advocate as one of the Top 5 LGBT Graphic Novels of 2013. Lambda Literary Award Finalist 2014.</h3><br /><br />Deacon, a prototype android soldier, was ordered by his corporate masters to eliminate a team of scientists who knew too much and he has failed spectacularly. Not only did he let one of his targets live -- 19-year-old human outcast, Jeff Linnell -- he attacked the team sent to retrieve him. Now the Corporation demands answers and they have employed the brilliant and ruthless robopsychologist Clarice Maven to get them.<br /><br />Deacon seems desperate to conceal the shocking events that took place on Da Vinci 4, but what chance does he have fighting an adversary who can control his every move?<br /><br /><i>This Kindle edition uses Kindle's advanced Panel View technology.
