ADVENTURES OF ALEXANDER VON HUMBOLDT HC

(W) Andrea Wulf (A) Lillian Melcher

Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) was an intrepid explorer and the most famous scientist of his age.

His theories and ideas were profoundly influenced by a five-year exploration of South America. This graphic novel brings his daring expedition to life, complete with excerpts from Humboldt's own diaries, atlases, and publications, offering a portrait of the man who predicted human-induced climate change and fashioned poetic narra TIVe out of scientific observation.

AFTER MAN ZOOLOGY OF FUTURE HC

(W) Dougal Dixon (A) Dougal Dixon (CA) Dougal Dixon

First published in 1981, After Man is paleontologist Dougal Dixon's vision of an 'alterna TIVe evolution': one without mankind. In the foreword for this edition, he notes, "the book was about the natural forces of evolution, and man ... had too much of an influence .... With the removal of this interference I was able to let nature get back to work". While some of the creatures seem fantastical, others don't seem so very far-fetched. Dixon: "There are now the walking bats of New Zealand ... (and) then there are the snakes in Mexico that live in caves and snatch flying bats out of the air, just like 'The Anchorwhip'".

Stan Lee is a man who needs no introduction. The most legendary name in the history of comic books, he was the leading crea TIVe force behind Marvel Comics, and brought to life-and into the mainstream-some of the world's best-known heroes and most infamous villains throughout his career. His stories-filled with superheroes struggling with personal hang-ups and bad guys who possessed previously unseen psychological complexity-added wit and subtlety to a field previously locked into flat portrayals of good vs. evil. Lee put the human in superhuman and in doing so, created a new mythology for the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In this beautifully illustrated graphic memoir-illustrated by celebrated artist Colleen Doran-discover the true story behind the man, written with the same inimitable wit, energy, and offbeat spirit that he brought to the world of comics. Moving from his impoverished childhood in Manhattan to his early days writing comics, through his military training films during World War II and the rise of the Marvel empire in the 1960s to the current cinematic resurgence, Amazing Fantastic Incredible documents the life of a man and the legacy of an industry and career. This funny, moving, and incredibly honest memoir is a must-have for collectors and fans of comic books and graphic novels of every age.

AMERICAN COMIC BOOK CHRONICLES HC 1940-44

The American Comic Book Chronicles continues! Kurt Mitchell and editor Roy Thomas composed this volume about the "Golden Age" of the comic book industry, a five-year period that presented the earliest adventures of such iconic super-heroes as Batman, Captain Marvel, Superman, and Wonder Woman. It was a time when America's entry into World War II was presaged by the arrival of such patriotic do-gooders as Will Eisner's Uncle Sam, Harry Shorten and Irv Novick's The Shield, and Joe Simon and Jack Kirby's Captain America. It was when teenage culture found expression in a fumbling red-haired high school student named Archie Andrews. But most of all, the first five years of the 1940s was the age of the "packagers" when studios headed by men like Harry A Chesler, Will Eisner, and Jerry Iger churned out material for a plethora of new comic book companies that published the entire gamut of genres, from funny animal stories to crime tales to jungle sagas to science-fiction adventures. These are just a few of the events chronicled in this exhaus TIVe, full-color hardcover.
