Suicide Squad Vol. 2: Going Sane (Rebirth)
Exploding from DC’s blockbuster Rebirth event, SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 2: GOING SANE by writer Rob Williams and legendary artist Jim Lee delivers the thrilling conclusion to one of Task Force X’s greatest missions.
 
As the go-to team tasked with handling the world’s most top secret threats, the Suicide Squad has faced down terrors across the globe. But they’ve never brought their work home with them—until now.
 
Under the command of Task Force X’s iron-fisted director Amanda Waller, the Squad has “liberated” a strange extradimensional orb known as the Black Vault from the planet’s most secure incarceration facility—at the cost of one disintegrated team member. What’s inside the eerie black sphere? None other than Kryptonian dictator General Zod, in all his megalomaniacal, world-destroying glory.
 
Now Waller has to figure out what to do with one of the most dangerous entities in the known universe. In theory, whoever controls Zod controls the world. In practice, the Black Vault’s corrupting energies are already eroding the sanity of everyone in the Squad’s HQ—with the sole exception of the Clown Princess of Crazy herself, Harley Quinn!
 
But can one newly sane psychologist single-handedly stop the madness of the Black Vault, defeat Zod and keep the Suicide Squad from ultimately living up to its name?
 
From writer Rob Williams and superstar artist Jim Lee, SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 2: GOING SANE includes stories illustrated by Stephen Bryne, Carlos D’Anda, Christian Ward, Giuseppe Camuncoli and more! Collects SUICIDE SQUAD #5-8 and the HARLEY QUINN AND THE SUICIDE SQUAD APRIL FOOLS’ SPECIAL one-shot.

Suicide Squad Vol. 1: The Black Vault (Rebirth)
Harley Quinn. Deadshot. Killer Croc. Enchantress. Captain Boomerang. Katana. They’re dangerous. They’re deadly. They’re deeply unstable. And they’re our only hope. They’re the characters from the smash-hit film and they’re here in this great new starting-point graphic novel, SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 1: THE BLACK VAULT, as part of DC Rebirth!
 
Assembled by the tough-as-nails intelligence expert Amanda Waller and overseen by disgraced military genius Captain Rick Flag, the men, women and monsters of the Suicide Squad—a.k.a. Task Force X—do the jobs that are too dirty for any superheroes to soil their capes with.
 
Their latest mission should be easy enough: recover a powerful cosmic weapon called the Black Vault from enemy hands. The Suicide Squad always gets the job done (mostly) but this time, when the weapon's dark influence spreads and the team is driven to madness and mayhem (more than usual), there's only one person sane enough to save the Squad from destruction…the Clown Princess of Crazy herself, Harley Quinn!
 
Legendary artist Jim Lee teams up with writer Rob Williams and artists Philip Tan, Jason Fabok, Ivan Reis and Gary Frank for a new deadly Task Force X mission in SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 1: THE BLACK VAULT! Exploding from the pages of DC’s blockbuster Rebirth event and starring the characters you love and hate from the smash-hit movie, this graphic novel is a great jumping-on point for new readers! Collects issues #1-4 and the SUICIDE SQUAD: REBIRTH one-shot.

Akka in Action

Summary

Akka in Action is a comprehensive tutorial on building message-oriented systems using Akka. The book takes a hands-on approach, where each new concept is followed by an example that shows you how it works, how to implement the code, and how to (unit) test it.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the Technology

Akka makes it relatively easy to build applications in the cloud or on devices with many cores that efficiently use the full capacity of the computing power available. It's a toolkit that provides an actor programming model, a runtime, and required support tools for building scalable applications.

Akka in Action shows you how to build message-oriented systems with Akka. This comprehensive, hands-on tutorial introduces each concept with a working example. You'll start with the big picture of how Akka works, and then quickly build and deploy a fully functional REST service out of actors. You'll explore test-driven development and deploying and scaling fault-tolerant systems. After mastering the basics, you'll discover how to model immutable messages, implement domain models, and apply techniques like event sourcing and CQRS. You'l also find a tutorial on building streaming applications using akka-stream and akka-http. Finally, you'l get practical advice on how to customize and extend your Akka system.

Martian Manhunter Vol. 2
MARS REBORN!

He was the last son of a dead world. But now that world lives again.

Mars has risen from the ashes, and J’onn J’onzz, the Martian Manhunter, has returned to a life he never thought he’d lead. But even though his world and his people have come back from the dead, they’ve brought nothing but trouble with them.

Somehow alive on this strange new world, the disparate aspects of J’onn’s fractured personality are not all on board with his plan to forsake his adopted home. Meanwhile, a tyrant rules the Red Planet with an iron fist. And for Mars to live, Earth needs to die.

It’s up to the Martian Manhunter and his motley crew of allies to save two races and two worlds from annihilation. While the war rages from planet to planet, who will win the war within—the Martian, or the man?

Find out in MARTIAN MANHUNTER VOL. 2, the explosive next chapter in the acclaimed series from red-hot writer Rob Williams (SUICIDE SQUAD) and acclaimed illustrator Eddy Barrows (DETECTIVE COMICS)! Collects MARTIAN MANHUNTER #7-12 and JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #5.
