JAKAS STORY REMASTERED ED

CEREBUS TP VOL 05 JAKAS STORY REMASTERED ED

Jaka's Story, the fifth volume of the Cerebus series, represents a point of departure for the series, focusing as it does on a small cast of characters, living out their lives in orbital, Thoreau-like 'quiet desperation', drawn ever inward, until at last, they inevitably collide.

A MANS SKIN GN

Award winning fairy tale about love! Once upon a time in Renaissance Italy, Bianca, a young lady from a good family, is of marriage age. Her parents find her a fiance? to their liking: Giovanni, a rich merchant, young and pleasant. The wedding looks set to go smoothly even though Bianca can't hide her disappointment at having to marry a man she knows nothing about. But before the marriage, she learns the secret held and bequeathed by the women of her family for generations: a 'man's skin'! By donning it, Bianca becomes 'Lorenzo' and enjoys all the attributes of a young man of stunning beauty. She can now visit the world of men incognito and get to know her fiance? in his natural environment. In her male skin, Bianca frees herself from the limits imposed on women. The morals of the Renaissance then act as a mirror to our present time and poses several questions: why should women be treated differently from men? Why should their freedom be the object of contempt and coercion? Tackling universal themes through a captivating and subtle fairy tale, Hubert and Zanzim brilliantly question our relationship to gender and sexuality...but not only that. By mixing morality and humor, A Man's Skin invites us to the mad and noble quest for love. This international bestselling title has already been highly awarded, including all the following: PRIX Ti ZEF DE LA BD 2020 (Festival Brest en Bulle), Grand Prix RTL de la Bande Dessinée 2020, Prix Landerneau BD 2020, Prix Wolinski de la BD du ' Point ' 2020, Grand Prix de la critique ACBD (Association des Critiques et journalistes de Bande Dessinée) 2021, Prix des Libraires Canal BD 2021, Fauve de Lycéens (Angoulême 2021.

CENTAURS GN VOL 01

An epic fantasy adventure set in an alternate medieval Japan, where humans co-exist with the mythic half man/half horse beasts known as centaurs, or 'jinba'. The centaur race were long revered as deities in ancient times; however, with the advent of the sengoku (warring states) period, humans started to enslave and use them for military purposes due to their speed, stamina, and ability to communicate in human language. Centaurs living in the plains were rapidly subjugated; in contrast, large numbers of centaurs living deep in the mountains were still free due to their relative isolation. A wild and proud warrior jinba from the mountains named Matsukaze, known as the redheaded rock tiger, is caught while protecting his son. He is traded to a feudal lord, and taken to his land. There he meets another centaur, named Kohibari, whose village was burned down as a child. He is a tame centaur, who had his arms amputated when he was captured, and has given up hope of escaping his human captors. If they can get over their differences and work together, they just might be able to return to the wilds as free centaurs.

RED LIGHTNING HC

It is the morning of January 10, 2016, and thirty-year-old Samuel is ready to leave the house and live another day of his ordinary existence. As soon as he arrives on the street, he learns about David Bowie's death. The news strikes him so hard that he is stunned, and his are not moments of bewilderment, but hours, days, years, and centuries...he finds himself catapulted across space and time. He awakens hundreds of thousands of years later, in a society of the future-in the year 200016-not so different from his own, although he is surrounded by people dressed as dinosaurs, integrated biological technologies, and there is a global well-being. Is it perhaps the utopia of the future? Samuel will have to try to find out and find his own dimension in the process, without losing himself. Red Lightning is a touching tribute to David Bowie. Six years after Bowie's death, Marco B. Bucci redefines science fiction with a graphic novel masterfully illustrated by the talented Riccardo Atzeni. Long live the White Duke!

VOICES OF WATER HC

Under a persistent rain, which seems destined to never subside, Stavros lives and moves through the streets of a dark and gloomy nameless city. He has a job and a fiancée; his life is normal. Yet several, different voices talk to him - sometimes whispering, sometimes whining or yelling - whenever he hears the water running. One day, as Stavros wanders the city under a heavy rain, voices become insistent, revealing his deepest, unspeakable secrets, as well as his dreams and memories. He is tormented by these mysterious voices, perhaps a sign of his madness. Or perhaps of a wider, collective madness, which infects everyone around him, to the point of being transmitted to the entire universe. A dramatic graphic novel full of black humor, spectacular and disturbing, written with visionary power and extraordinary narrative impetus by an absolute master of comics, Tiziano Sclavi, the creator of Dylan Dog. And illustrated by one of the most important Italian comics artists of the last decade, Werther Dell'Edera, co-creator of the bestselling Something Is Killing The Children.
