Summary

Comic book and superhero fans, rejoice! This volume includes seven scripts—a mix of urban fantasy, mobsters, horror, and humor—from a writer whose work has been published by DC Comics, among others. Robert Jeschonek has written plenty of scripts in his career, and these seven will shine a light on his writing process, his wild imagination…and some thrilling and thought-provoking adventures. The latest in a series collecting some of his best work, this action-packed book includes seven scripts: "Hell's Treasure": A teenage girl talks to buildings...and the buildings talk back. Driven by guilt for a fatal accident, she plans to take a deadly leap, until a boy with mysterious powers gets in the way. "Pieces": Body Sisk is literally full of holes. Rogue pieces of his body have escaped, taking on deadly humanoid form. His only chance at a new beginning is to hunt them down and force them back into place. "Made Guys": When mobsters get super powers, can anyone stop them? Only the lowest members of the Temporale crime family stand a chance of standing up to the power-crazed soldiers and bosses terrorizing the world. "Mr. Straight-Lace Takes A Trip": The weirdest man you'll ever meet embarks on a search for love...and ends up hijacked by his terrorist sweetheart. "Made in J-Town": Slices of life from a small town with a big heart and a past that's a total disaster. "Solitary": Super-mobster The Steel Sicilian can't escape from the prison town of Sargasso, where no one will talk to him...except one of his jailers, who needs a solution to a very deadly problem. "Dirty": In a world where "evil" is "good" and vice versa, the ultimate dirty cop leads a war against the scum of the Earth who perform acts of kindness. But when the cop is framed for good behavior, he finds himself on the run from the same corrupt establishment to which he has dedicated his life.

    In his illustrious career as a cartoonist for the New Yorker and other publications, Joseph Farris has created dozens of hilarious cartoons about “the best game in the world at which to be bad.”A.A. Milne had it right, and Farris’s cartoons get to the heart of the game’s wonderful contradiction: over the course of eighteen holes, golf has the capacity to bring great joy and drive you crazy.Farris treats us to the sight of a blissfully happily newlywed with “Just Married” emblazoned on the back of his golf cart; of an archaeologist who discovers a hieroglyph featuring an annoyed-looking pharaoh breaking a golf club over his knee; and a TV-watching husband who rebuffs his naked wife’s amorous advances in no uncertain terms: “Not now, I’m watching Tiger Woods.”It’s been said that real golfers don’t cry.  That may or may not be true.   Joseph Farris’s cartoons are sure to make any golfer laugh.

    “One of the great cartoonists of our time.” –New Yorker cartoonist Arnold Roth The remarkable story of one of America’s most prolific and beloved cartoonists, Al Jaffee, with dozens of original color illustrations. Jaffe’s career in cartooning stretches back to 1941—with early humor pieces for Timely Comics, a precursor to Marvel Comics—but the iconic artist remains best known for the brilliant Fold-In cartoons he invented at Bill Gaines’s Mad magazine in 1964. The cerebral and sardonic illustrations have inspired generations of Mad readers—including Stephen Colbert, R. Crumb, Gary Larson and Charles Shultz—to embrace a firm and healthy irreverence towards the status quo. New York Times columnist and bestselling author Mary-Lou Weisman (My Middle-Aged Baby Book) helps Jaffe tell his remarkable story.

    In 1859, Charles Darwin shocked the world with a radical theory - evolution by natural selection. One hundred and fifty years later, his theory still challenges some of our most precious beliefs.
    
    Introducing Evolution provides a step-by-step guide to 'Darwin's dangerous idea' and takes a fresh look at the often misunderstood concepts of natural selection and the selfish gene. Drawing on the latest findings from genetics, ecology and animal behaviour- as well as the work of best-selling science writers such as Richard Dawkins and Steven Pinker- this book reveals how the evidence in favour of evolutionary theory is stronger than ever.
