BEZIMENA HC (A)
(W/A/CA) Nina Bunjevac A piercing psychological exploration of the delusional mind of a sexual predator. Drawing on her own traumatic memories of sexual assault, Ninja Bunjevac explores the warped psyche of a sexual predator. Told through a noirish lens, Bezimena is the story of a man who develops a disturbing sexual obsession with a former classmate, steadily losing his grasp on reality. As his fantasies become increasingly lurid, the book's imagery grows ever more surreal; in her masterfully lush, stippled technique, Bunjevac conjures mesmerizing dreamscapes and eerie allusions to the Greek myth of Artemis and Siproites. Refusing to shy away from the morally grotesque, Bezimena seeks to discover what compels people to commit acts of evil.

BIG TOWN HC NOVEL
From the award-winning author of The Last Rose Of Summer and This Side Of Jordan comes a new prose novel framed within a city where gangsters murder ordinary citizens and everyone seems to have a get-rich scheme. Set as the Roaring '20s come to a thunderous close, The Big Town evokes a lost era through language and flamboyant characters reminiscent of Fitzgerald, Dos Passos and Ring Lardner, and yet it also eerily mirrors our own time with its study of the role of business, crime, morality, and love in our lives.

BLACK IS THE COLOR GN
AN ORIGINAL, HAUNTINGLY ROMANTIC GRAPHIC NOVELLA Black is the Color begins with a 17th century sailor abandoned at sea by his shipmates, and as it progresses he endures, and eventually succumbs to, both his lingering death sentence and the advances of a cruel and amorous mermaid. The narrative also explores the experiences of the loved ones he leaves behind, on his ship and at home on land, as well as of the mermaids who jadedly witness his destruction. At the heart of the story lie the dubious value of maintaining dignity to the detriment of intimacy, and the erotic potential of the worst case scenario. Julie Gfrorer's delicate drawing style perfectly complements the period era of Black is the Color, bringing the lyricism and romanticism of Gfrorer's prose to the fore. Black is the Color is a book as seductive as the sirens it depicts.

BLAZING COMBAT HC (CURR PTG) (MR)
(W) Archie Goodwin (A) Various Written by Archie Goodwin and drawn by such luminaries as Frank Frazetta, Wally Wood, John Severin, Alex Toth, Al Williamson, Russ Heath, Reed Crandall, and Gene Colan, Blazing Combat was originally published by independent comics publisher James Warren in 1965 and '66. Following in the tradition of Harvey Kurtzman's Two-Fisted Tales and Frontline Combat, Goodwin's stories reflected the human realities and personal costs of war rather than exploiting the clich?s of the traditional men's adventure genre. They were among the best comics stories about war ever published. Blazing Combat ended after its fourth issue when military post exchanges refused to sell the title due to their perception that it was an anti-war comic. Their hostility was fueled by the depiction of the then-current Vietnam War, especially a story entitled 'Landscape,' which follows the thoughts of a simple Vietnamese peasant rice-farmer who pays the ultimate price simply for living where he does - and which was considered anti-war agitprop by the more hawkish members of the business c
