Kurt Cobain: When I Was an Alien 

Description:


Growing up, Kurt Cobain believed that he was an alien and that his parents weren’t really his parents. He thought that his alien race would rescue him sooner or later or that he would at least meet others like him, never feeling alone again. Eventually, Kurt Cobain will meet like-minded friends and start the band, Nirvana, that changes the musical landscape forever. Created by two up-and-coming Italian comic artists, this nonfiction, coming-of-age graphic novel follows Kurt Cobain from his childhood to the brink of worldwide fame with the release of Nevermind, showing how tough suburban life can be for a teenager and how friendship and music can fill that emptiness, especially when you feel different. Alone.

Over Easy 


Description:


A fast-paced semi-memoir about diners, drugs, and California in the 1970s


Over Easy is a brilliant portrayal of a familiar coming-of-age story. After being denied financial aid to cover her last year of art school, Margaret finds salvation from the straightlaced world of college and the earnestness of both hippies and punks in the wisecracking, fast-talking, drug-taking group she encounters at the Imperial Café, where she makes the transformation from Margaret to Madge. At first she mimics these new and exotic grown-up friends, trying on the guise of adulthood with some awkward but funny stumbles. Gradually she realizes that the adults she looks up to are a mess of contradictions, misplaced artistic ambitions, sexual confusion, dependencies, and addictions.

     Over Easy is equal parts time capsule of late 1970s life in California—with its deadheads, punks, disco rollers, casual sex, and drug use—and bildungsroman of a young woman who grows from a naïve, sexually inexperienced art-school dropout into a self-aware, self-confident artist. Mimi Pond’s chatty, slyly observant anecdotes create a compelling portrait of a distinct moment in time. Over Easy is an immediate, limber, and precise semi-memoir narrated with an eye for the humor in every situation.

Neurocomic 


Description:


Do you know what your brain is made of? How does memory function? What is a neuron and how does it work? For that matter what’s a comic? And in the words of Lewis Carroll’s famous caterpillar: “Who are you?”


Neurocomic is a journey through the human brain: a place of neuron forests, memory caves, and castles of deception. Along the way, you’ll encounter Boschean beasts, giant squid, guitar-playing sea slugs, and the great pioneers of neuroscience. Hana Roš and Matteo Farinella provide an insight into the most complex thing in the universe.


Produced in association with the Wellcome Trust, one of the world’s largest medical charities

A superb introduction to the complexities of the brain for the layman

Night of the Living Dead: Aftermath Volume 2 


Description:


The hedonistic late 1970s is the perfect backdrop for the next evolution in the classic Night of the Living Dead series! David Hine continues a horrifyingly original take on the zombie menace as the virus spreads through Las Vegas leaving it a city of the dead. As a group of unlikely survivors flee east, they encounter something more sinister even than the reanimated corpses that seem intent on finding (and dining upon) the ragtag refugees. For locked away in a secure military facility they discover that true horror is bred by the living much more efficiently than the dead. But hidden within the misery is the unthinkable… an anomaly that could lead to a zombie vaccine. But to get it to the safety of Washington the survivors must face a sea of undead whose ranks have swollen to legion. Death, misery, and the living dead make this one of the most chilling chapters in the storied Night of the Living Dead franchise. This collection includes issues #7-12 of the Night of the Living Dead: Aftermath series.
