Genre: Comics & Graphic Novels

In 2000, legendary writer/artist Walter Simonson, best known for his work on DC's Manhunter and Marvels' Thor, treated comics fans to his vision of Jack Kirby's Fourth World mythology. At the center of the series was the conflict between Orion, born on the violent world of Apokolips but raised on peaceful New Genesis, and his father, Darkseid, ruler of Apokolips. Focusing on the clash between father and son, the series features most of the Fourth World heroes and villains created by Jack Kirby, as Darkseid seeks the deadly anti-life equation - and Orion battles to stop him from eradicating life as we know it! This title also includes short stories written by Simonson and illustrated by Frank Miller, Dave Gibbons, Howard Chaykin, Jim Lee and others. Collects ORION #1-25 and stories from JACK KIRBY'S FOURTH WORLD #9-11 and 13.

Ed Brubaker

Author: Terrence R. Wandtke
Publisher: Univ. Press of Mississippi
ISBN: 9781496805515
Release Date: 2016-03-04
Genre: Literary Criticism

Ed Brubaker (b. 1966) has emerged as one of the most popular, significant figures in art comics since the 1990s. Most famous as the man who killed Captain America in 2007, Brubaker’s work on company-owned properties such as Batman and Captain America and creator-owned series like Criminal and Fatale live up to the usual expectations for the superhero and crime genres. And yet, Brubaker layers his stories with a keen self-awareness, applying his expansive knowledge of American comic book history to invigorate his work and challenge the dividing line between popular entertainment and high art. This collection of interviews explores the sophisticated artist’s work, drawing upon the entire length of the award-winning Brubaker’s career. With his stints writing Catwoman, Gotham Central, and Daredevil, Brubaker advanced the work of crime comic book writers through superhero stories informed by hard-boiled detective fiction and film noir. During his time on Captain America and his series Sleeper and Incognito, Brubaker revisited the conventions of the espionage thriller. With double agents who lose themselves in their jobs, the stories expose the arbitrary superhero standards of good and evil. In his series Criminal, Brubaker offered complex crime stories and, with a clear sense of the complicated lost world before the Comics Code, rejected crusading critic Fredric Wertham’s myth of the innocence of early comics. Overall, Brubaker demonstrates his self-conscious methodology in these often little-known and hard-to-find interviews, worthwhile conversations in their own right as well as objects of study for both scholars and researchers.

Asterios Polyp

Author: David Mazzucchelli
Publisher: Eichborn Verlag

Release Date: 2011-07-26
Genre: Fiction

In seinem epischen Meisterwerk über die Suche eines Mannes nach Liebe, dem Sinn des Lebens und perfekten architektonischen Proportionen definiert David Mazzucchelli ein ganzes Genre neu. Asterios Polyp könnte ein glücklicher Mann sein. Er ist ein hoch angesehener Architekt, er unterrichtet an einer ehrwürdigen Uni-versität, und er heiratet die Liebe seines Lebens. Doch Asterios ist auch ein Versager: Keiner seiner ehrgeizigen Entwürfe wurde je gebaut, sie existieren nur auf dem Papier, sein Hochmut macht ihn zu einem einsamen Menschen, seine warmherzige Frau Hana verlässt ihn. Als an seinem 50. Geburtstag seine New Yorker Wohnung in Flammen aufgeht, steht er vor den Trümmern seiner Existenz. Benommen verlässt er die Stadt und heuert irgendwo in einer Kleinstadt als Automechaniker an. Die Menschen dort hätte er früher nur verachtet, jetzt ist er einer von ihnen und sucht, überwältigt von seinen Erinnerungen, nach Erlösung. Und einer zweiten Chance - vielleicht. "Asterios Polyp" ist das Opus magnum eines weltweit bewunderten Comic-Künstlers: ein vielschichtiger Ideenroman, ein faszinierendes Gesamtkunstwerk aus Sprache und Bildern und eine große, berührende Liebesgeschichte.
