Bonnie Anne Talon is the daughter of one of the founding members of the Brotherhood of the Black Flag, a fleet of space pirates. She grew up stealing all her food—and even the very oxygen she needs to breathe—from other spaceships. Never having experienced 'civilized' life, (or even having set foot on a planet), she is expecting trouble from the other pirates when her own crew her elects her captain. But she could never have guessed that two of her fellow captains would end up fighting over her—breaking apart the fleet and setting pirate ship against pirate ship.
Life as a space exile is already precarious enough—if the brotherhood turns against itself, will any of them survive?

Texas, 1836. The Republic of Texas began the fight for independence in 1833. For several years, Texans fought the Mexican government for the right to rule itself. One of the historical battles was fought on March 6, 1836, at the Alamo, a crumbling fort defended by 154 men. Stand with the defenders in what became a symbol of Texan courage and sacrifice in this impressive graphic novel. Maps, timelines, glossaries, and indexes make these titles an exciting addition to classroom discussion.
Date Me is a collection of comics that tells stories of dating in a wheelchair, social situations sculpted by people’s response to a wheelchair, and the struggle of trying to fit in from a different perspective. Dating is hard enough as an able-bodied person. Throw in the variable of a wheelchair and the “hard” becomes “almost not worth it.” Kristin Beale shares stories of her crazy family, the unique and often lousy ways people interact with her because of her disability, and her often failed attempts at dating in a wheelchair with a strained, but ongoing determination not to give up. Relatable for many people who have dated in the 21st century, Date Me offers a different perspective from a wheelchair user and how to interact with them. With a few extra indiscriminate stories thrown in, Kristin’s stories keep readers entertained as she reveals the struggles and triumphs of living in a wheelchair in today’s world.

The office can be a dangerous place. The same old daily routine has a tendency to reduce any inspiration for fun or imagination into tedious cubicles and spreadsheets. This is precisely the situation in which Doug Savage found himself. His creativity waning away under fluorescent lights of his office job, he finally discovered his own personal antidote: doodling some cheeky chickens on yellow sticky notes. He began uploading these drawings to his Savage Chickens blog in 2005, and over 18,000 cartoons later, his chickens are as clever—and absurd—as ever. The Savage Chickens must too contend with their mundane office environment, but with a little help from their favorite colleagues and friends, it’s not difficult for them to find diversions (read: trouble). From pirates and time-travelers to Middle Earth and M.C. Hammer, from the most sinister Happy Bear you’ll ever meet to Marketing Chicken who is always attached to his martini, the Chickens’ puns and wordplay will constantly thwart your expectations in surprising and humorous ways. This e-book original collection is not just an assortment of Savage’s very best cartoons, but his very very best cartoons, composed of the wittiest, most memorable drawings to date. Bring it along on your commute to work, and suddenly the office might not seem like the death of amusement after all.
