At last, Volumes 1 and 2 of Alan Moore's LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN are collected in a single, hardcover edition! As the twentieth century approaches, there is a need for a new kind of champion - adventurers not bound by the chaste order that characterizes the stagnant Victorian Era. The enigmatic Campion Bond of British Intelligence has begun a recruiting mission, collecting a menagerie of individuals who can be of value to his superiors due to...activities that have forced them beyond the pale. But as Allan Quatermain, Mina Murray, Captain Nemo, Dr. Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde, and Hawley Griffin, the Invisible Man discover, British Intelligence has plans for them that go far beyond mere spying. And if they survive their first test against the devil doctor of Limehouse, they'll have to battle an even stranger menace from the stars!

Ein tödliches Virus verbreitet sich rasend schnell über die Vereinigten Staaten. Die schiere Größe und Professionalität dieser Aktion lässt auf eine kaltblütige und bestens organisierte Terroristengruppe schließen, die die USA ins Visier nimmt. Oder etwa nicht? Sitzt der Feind womöglich im Inneren? Sind hier noch weit mächtigere Interessen im Spiel als es den Anschein hat? Mit dieser Geschichte legen Robert Venditti und Mike Huddleston einen Thriller der Extraklasse vor, der nicht nur grafisch besticht, sondern auch ein echter Pageturner ist. Ganz nebenbei stellt dieser Comic die Frage nach dem Preis der Freiheit, wenn Sicherheit zur Religion wird.

Climate Fiction from the Inklings to Game of Thrones

A broad examination of climate fantasy and science fiction, from The Lord of the Rings and the Narnia series to The Handmaid’s Tale and Game of Thrones. Fellow Inklings J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis may have belonged to different branches of Christianity, but they both made use of a faith-based environmentalist ethic to counter the mid-twentieth-century’s triple threats of fascism, utilitarianism, and industrial capitalism. In Fire and Snow, Marc DiPaolo explores how the apocalyptic fantasy tropes and Christian environmental ethics of the Middle-earth and Narnia sagas have been adapted by a variety of recent writers and filmmakers of “climate fiction,” a growing literary and cinematic genre that grapples with the real-world concerns of climate change, endless wars, and fascism, as well as the role religion plays in easing or escalating these apocalyptic-level crises. Among the many other well-known climate fiction narratives examined in these pages are Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games, The Handmaid’s Tale, Mad Max, and Doctor Who. Although the authors of these works stake out ideological territory that differs from Tolkien’s and Lewis’s, DiPaolo argues that they nevertheless mirror their predecessors’ ecological concerns. The Christians, Jews, atheists, and agnostics who penned these works agree that we all need to put aside our cultural differences and transcend our personal, socioeconomic circumstances to work together to save the environment. Taken together, these works of climate fiction model various ways in which a deep ecological solidarity might be achieved across a broad ideological and cultural spectrum. “This book is remarkably diverse in its literary, cinematic, journalistic, and graphics-media sources, and the writing is equally authoritative in all these domains. DiPaolo’s prose moves deftly from a work of fiction to its film avatar, to the political and societal realities they address, and back again into other cultural manifestations and then into and out of the deep theory of climate fiction, literary scholarship, ecofeminism, religious tradition, and authorial biographies. It contributes considerably to all of these fields, and is indispensable for climate and environmental literature classes. It’s also a must-have for general readers of the genre.” — Jonathan Evans, coauthor of Ents, Elves, and Eriador: The Environmental Vision of J. R .R. Tolkien “I like it. No, I love it. This book is both broad and deep, and yet it remains both very readable and constantly interesting. It’s the sort of book that can only be written by someone who is a good reader of both books and culture. As I was reading it I thought, this is like being at a party and meeting someone brilliant and fun, and finding that I’m enjoying that person’s company so much that I don’t notice the time flying by. It’s not often that a scholarly book does that to me.” — David O’Hara, Augustana University

"Some of them think 'cause they're superheroes they're above the law. It's my job to change their thinking. Sometimes this can prove fatal." In a twisted, decadent future not so far away, the city once called San Francisco is now a war zone. The government has commissioned living weapons of mass destruction to wage war on terror. The survivors return home broken, bitter, insane - and almost unstoppable! Some form gangs, some go psycho. Some turn into A-list celebrities with A-bomb fists. Only one man knows the dark secrets these so-called "heroes" are hiding. Only one man has the power to take on America's best and brightest and bring them to justice. His eyes will reflect the rocket's red glare. He is the twilight's last gleaming. He is... MARSHAL LAW! At long last, Top Shelf presents a revolutionary epic over twenty years in the making: The Marshal Law Omnibus, a super-deluxe, one-volume, full-color, 512-page definitive collection of the groundbreaking series by British comics legends Pat Mills (Judge Dredd) and Kevin O'Neill (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen).
