The Provocative COLETTE


The Provocative COLETTE
Annie Goetzinger

Movie "Colette" coming in September starring Keira Knightley! Many biographies describe this uncommon woman and author. It is her years of formation which are focused on here, from her marriage at the age of 20, until her divorce. "One dies only from the first man," she wrote in 1909. But this death was a new beginning, and the one that signed "Colette" from 1910 on gradually opened her eyes to her condition of a woman who was an exploited writer and a betrayed wife, and who will emancipate herself by writing, and with what talent! Incredibly complex, powerfully determined, truly gifted, Colette challenged herself to reinvent her life and assert herself as a free woman. In her day, her behavior scandalized and vexed the establishment. But in the end, she helped to free women in their thinking and became member and then president of France's prestigious Académie Goncourt, among many other honors as one of France's preeminent authors. For mature readers.
"Goetzinger's shines in precise, realistic, sensually drawn figures and a lush palette, fitting her Belle Epoque setting."
"Goetzinger leaves behind a truly elegant, feminist oeuvre." -France Amerique
"Beguiling. Here as in 2013's feather-light Girl in Dior, Goetzinger draws lovely things and lovely people with elegant facility. She utterly rejects the ironic distortions and self-conscious artificiality that characterize many contemporary comics. Goetzinger's sentimentality would probably win her subject's approval."
-Etelka Lehoczky, NPR
"This thrilling and tender look at storytelling and romance at the turn of the century proves a fitting finale to a distinguished cartoonist's career." -Publishers Weekly

Red Shadows
Michael Cherkas & Larry Hancock
Introduction by Max Allan Collins
In this era of fake news and 'deep state' this couldn't be more timely! The paranoid cult-classic science fiction mystery of the early days of indie comics returns! The series will begin with two books reprinting the original volumes, followed by the never before collected third album and concluding with an all-new fourth book of this epic series of conspiracy and paranoia. Set against the background of a nightmarish 1950s crawling with communist spies, corrupt FBI agents, McCarthyites, Stalinists, cold warriors, flying saucers, mysterious government organizations, The Silent Invasion weaves a byzantine tale of mystery and deceit as a bewildered investigative reporter Matt Sinkage pursues the truth behind an apparent alien invasion of earth that points to involvement at the highest levels of American government officials.

Specially priced 2 volume set of the full story. 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?
