Summary

What makes life worth living? If you ask Lord Birthday, the answer is visor hats. And lighthouses. And the stranger who gave him a half-eaten panini on the bus the other day.In Your Life Is a Life of Hope!, the Internet’s favorite mustachioed king presents a series of short, illustrated essays in which he argues for hope by way of absurdity and transcendence by way of the mundane. In his signature childlike, dryly humorous style, Lord Birthday explores the things that make life so great, including jackets and bags and “booping someone on the nose.” Both strange and strangely moving, this collection will delight fans and newcomers alike.

    Rabbi Harvey is Back with Ten Hilarious New                 Adventures              
    In this follow-up to the popular The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey: A Graphic Novel of Jewish Wisdom and Wit in the Wild West, the Rabbi returns to the streets of Elk Spring, Colorado. Part Wild West sheriff, part old world rabbi, Harvey                 protects his town and delivers justice, wielding only the                 weapons of wisdom, wit, and a bit of trickery. These adventures                 combine Jewish and American folklore by creatively retelling                 comic Jewish folktales and setting them loose on the western                 frontier of the 1870s.              
    As his fame grows throughout the Rocky                 Mountains, Rabbi Harvey meets new characters—including                 the luckless gold miner Abigail—and faces a slew of new                 challenges. He encounters the return of “Big Milt”                 and Wolfie Wasserman (the most feared father-and-son outlaw                 team east of Nevada), and investigates another bold crime by                 the sweet-faced Bad Bubbe. And, as ever, the Rabbi is the quickest draw in the West—when it comes to pulling out bits of Talmudic                 insight to fit any occasion, that is. Like any great collection                 of Jewish folktales, these stories contain layers of humor and                 timeless wisdom that will entertain, teach and, especially,                 make you laugh.

    Famous for his superhuman strength, Hercules is the most popular hero in Greek mythology. The son of Zeus—king of the gods—and a mortal mother, Hercules faces the wrath of Zeus's wife Hera, who resents her illegitimate stepson and vows to bring him misery. With her magical powers, she tricks Hercules into performing a series of twelve seemingly impossible labors, each one a test of his strength, courage, cunning, and fighting skill. Is Hercules strong enough to foil her scheme? For this exciting retelling of the twelve labors, author Paul Storrie consulted the classic work The Age of Fable (1859), by American Thomas Bulfinch, and Edith Hamilton's Mythology (1942), both of which are considered the best resources about on ancient myths and legends. Artist Steve Kurth also relied on historical research to accurately bring to life the world of ancient Greece.
