Why be credible when you can be incredible? 
 
Eight months ago, a mad scientist's device left Reuben Conway with the superhuman abilities of Ultiman. When a flame-wielding burglar goes on a crime spree in Los Angeles, it's up to Reuben to track him down. But, when a mysterious organization frames him for the crimes, he finds himself at the center of a scheme to destroy the city. As the terrorist plot storms toward its murderous goal, Reuben discovers that he's been caught in a trap.  
 
 
One from which no hero can escape. 
 
 
The third installment in the popular Conway Report series, The Temporary Hero is a pulse-pounding ride through a noir world of secret identities, mind-boggling superpowers, desperate gambits and shadowy conspiracies that will leave fans of potboilers and superheroes screaming for more.

    Epigenetics is the most exciting field in biology today, developing our understanding of how and why we inherit certain traits, develop diseases and age, and evolve as a species.
     
    This non-fiction comic book introduces us to genetics, cell biology and the fascinating science of epigenetics, which is rapidly filling in the gaps in our knowledge, allowing us to make huge advances in medicine. We’ll look at what identical twins can teach us about the epigenetic effects of our environment and experiences, why certain genes are 'switched on' or off at various stages of embryonic development, and how scientists have reversed the specialization of cells to clone frogs from a single gut cell.
     
    In Introducing Epigenetics, Cath Ennis and Oliver Pugh pull apart the double helix, examining how the epigenetic building blocks and messengers that interpret and edit our genes help to make us, well, us.

    Lupe Impala, El Chavo Flapjack, and Elirio Malaria love working with cars. You name it, they can fix it. But the team's favorite cars of all are lowriders—cars that hip and hop, dip and drop, go low and slow, bajito y suavecito. The stars align when a contest for the best car around offers a prize of a trunkful of cash—just what the team needs to open their own shop! ¡Ay chihuahua! What will it take to transform a junker into the best car in the universe? Striking, unparalleled art from debut illustrator Raul the Third recalls ballpoint-pen-and-Sharpie desk-drawn doodles, while the story is sketched with Spanish, inked with science facts, and colored with true friendship. With a glossary at the back to provide definitions for Spanish and science terms, this delightful book will educate and entertain in equal measure.
