THOREAU, A Sublime Life  

THOREAU, A Sublime Life
A. Dan, Maximilien Le Roy

"To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school, but so to love wisdom as to live according to its dictates, a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity and trust."
This graphic novel biography relates the forward looking inspirational life of the great author, philosopher and pioneering ecologist. Henry David Thoreau was also the father of the concept, still fresh today (viz 'Occupy Wall St.'), of 'civil disobedience' which he used against slavery and the encroachment of government.
8 ½ x 11, 88pp, full color hardcover, $19.99, ISBN 9781681120256

GUARDIANS OF THE LOUVRE  

The Louvre Collection:
GUARDIANS OF THE LOUVRE
Jirô Taniguchi

Acclaimed manga artist Jiro Taniguchi provides the latest entry in the
Louvre collection of graphic novels. After a group trip to Europe, a
Japanese artist stops in Paris alone, intent on visiting the museums of the
capital. But, bedridden in his hotel room with fever, he faces the absolute
solitude of one suffering in a foreign land, deprived of any immediate or
familiar recourse. When the fever breaks somewhat, he sets out on his visit
and promptly gets lost in the crowded halls of the Louvre. Very soon, he
discovers many unsuspected facets to this world in a museum in a journey
oscillating between feverish hallucination and reality, actually able to
speak with famous painters from various periods of history, led to
crossroads between human and personal history by... the Guardians of the
Louvre.

BREAKING THE TEN
BREAKING THE TEN
Sean Michael Wilson & Michiru Morikawa
When David loses his wife and child in a tragic car accident he decides, in anger at the cruelty of the event, to turn against God. He sets out to systematically break each of the Ten Commandments in order to both spite God and to get his attention! But will he go all the way, and break the commandment 'Thou shalt not kill'? Two mysterious figures, Mr White and Mr Black, try to win David over to their side: the religious or the humanistic. Deeply sad in parts and comical in others, this modern story explores age old questions: Is there a God? And if there is, does that God care about us? By the author of The Story of Lee.
"An intriguing premise."
-Brigid Alverson, Robot 6, Comic Book Resources
6x9, 112pp., B&W trade pb., $11.99, ISBN 9781681120218

MARIE ANTOINETTE, PHANTOM QUEEN
MARIE ANTOINETTE, PHANTOM QUEEN
Annie Goetzinger & Rodolphe
During the 1930s, Maud, an artist, discovers she has a psychic gift. The first signs manifest themselves in the royal gardens of the Trianon where gradually she understands that a woman from the beyond is attempting to communicate with her. The revelation is beyond belief: it is the ghost of Marie Antoinette appearing to her to share a terrible secret that has tormented her for centuries. After being guillotined, the Queen is said to have been thrown into a common grave but then exhumed and buried with her husband, Louis XVI, in the Saint-Denis basilica. Yet the ghost tells Maud that her remains are still in the pit, on which a chapel stands today. The queen asks Maud to move her body to the right place so she can finally find peace and no longer haunt people.
Part fantastic ghost story, part biography, this is a delicious beautifully illustrated look into French revolutionary history by the artist of the bestselling 'Girl in Dior.'
8 ½ x 11, 68 pages, full color hardcover, $17.99, ISBN 9781681120294
