"You believe in pirates, of course?" Walt Disney once asked on a Disneyland television program. . . . Disney Pirates: The Definitive Collector's Anthology delves behind-the-scenes across ninety years of Disney film, television, and park history. Pirates have captured people's imaginations for centuries, and Walt Disney believed in pirates as a source of great popular entertainment. Walt's very first all live-action feature film was based upon Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, and even before that, he selected J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan, in which pirates figure so prominently, as a key feature-length animated film for his studio. Years later, Pirates of the Caribbean opened in Disneyland just months after Walt had passed away, making it one of the last Disney theme park attractions in which he was personally involved. That attraction ultimately spawned similar versions at Disney parks around the world, one of the most successful series in motion picture history with the five Pirates of the Caribbean films, and a vast themed land at Shanghai Disneyland called Treasure Cove--celebrating the entirety of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

Die Möwe ist ein Drama von Anton Tschechow aus dem Jahre 1895. Tschechows Stück spielt auf dem Land im zaristischen Russland der Jahrhundertwende (19./20. Jahrhundert). In schrecklicher Langeweile öden die Gäste auf einem Landsitz einander an: Sie gehen sich mit kleinen Sticheleien auf die Nerven und machen sich so das Leben zur Hölle. Der Sohn einer Schauspielerin, Konstantin Gavrilovič Treplev, möchte Schriftsteller werden und hat ein kleines Theaterstück geschrieben, welches am Abend auf einer improvisierten Bühne den Gästen vorgespielt werden soll. Die Hauptrolle spielt dabei seine Geliebte und Muse Nina. Treplev leidet jedoch unter der ständigen Nörgelei seiner Mutter, die sein schriftstellerisches Talent und sein ganzes Leben in Frage stellt. Außerdem hat sie einen Freund, Boris Alekseevič Trigorin, der ebenfalls und bereits sehr erfolgreich Schriftsteller ist. Diesen Trigorin führt sie immer wieder an, wenn sie versucht, Treplevs Selbstvertrauen in sich und seine Arbeit zu schwächen. Bei der Aufführung von Treplevs Stück kommt es schließlich zum Eklat, Mutter und Sohn geraten in Streit. Mehr und mehr zeigt sich, dass Nina sich zu Trigorin hingezogen fühlt...
Die zehnjährige Karen Reyes führt ein ganz besonderes Tagebuch: Neben ihren Alltagsbeobachtungen zeichnet sie Monster aus Trash-Horrorfilmen und alten Pulp-Magazinen. So bewältigt sie ihren Alltag in den USA der 1960er-Jahre und sammelt Spuren und Hinweise, die zur Aufklärung des Mordes an ihrer Nachbarin Anka Silverberg beitragen sollen. Emil Ferris verarbeitet in Am liebsten mag ich Monster ihre eigene Vorliebe für Horror-B-Movies und Grusel- Groschenhefte und bettet dies in eine Geschichte ein, die die sozialen Spannungen im Chicago der 1960er Jahre mit einer Geschichte des Erwachsenwerdens verknüpft. Fantastisches Artwork! Für den Hugo Award nominiert! Der Überraschungserfolg aus den USA!
