Above the Ground

release date: Oct 04, 2022
Above the Ground
Post apocalyptic adventure brought forth by nuclear annihilation. Layering in reverse racial inequality, and the advancements of science & technology only achievable by a civilization that has no suffering. We examine what is, what was, and what could be. 100 years ago, they vanished. No one knew why, no one knew how — no one knew anything. The scientists were stunned, hell the world was stunned, and as for myself, I knew it was a moment that would haunt our history. My name is Betty Anders, a small-town teacher with an intrepid husband. David and I lived our peaceful, uneventful lives in Nebraska: I taught, while he pursued his research in biogenetic engineering. His breakthrough discovery — quantum entangled botany — gave us hope for a brighter, more sustainable future... which turned to utter fear when the government took it too far. Of course they did. Our remaining peace evaporated when the missiles started falling, fired by cruelly-intentioned leaders of the Alliance. I know what you're thinking… WHAT freaking missiles? But bare with me, there’s a lot to cover, and not a lot of time. Soon we found ourselves confined to David's bunker, frantically searching for any information. Who was left? How had the fallout altered the landscape? I couldn’t help my mind go to the simple prevailing truth that my husband's scientific breakthrough is now the most important piece of knowledge on the planet. As we brace ourselves to leave the bunker, I wonder, above all, if these events are somehow linked to the great mystery of what happened with the Native Americans those 100 years ago. While David and I find our place in this post-apocalyptic world, we need your help in summoning the courage to push forward as I have a feeling that the lines of history are all converging on this moment in time.

DC Comics Super-Villains: 100 Greatest Moments

release date: May 14, 2019
DC Comics Super-Villains: 100 Greatest Moments
DC Comics has created some of the most twisted and complex villainous characters in the world of comics. The third installment in the popular 100 Greatest Moments of DC Comics series, DC Comics Super-Villains features the pivotal acts that shaped the characters of 74 of these bad guys in over 200 pages of art. Every hero needs a villain. In fighting them, the extreme superiority of our heroes is revealed. The methods and morals of villains are usually the key difference between them and the heroes. Batman, for instance, is a vigilante who cleans up the streets while never stooping so low as to kill the deplorable criminals he battles. What makes him truly good is that he upholds these standards even when he's faced with a villain like the Joker, an entity that would arguably be better off dead. Many bad guys cause mayhem for mayhem's sake, with sometimes no apparent reason other than simply being bad. What makes a villain great, however, is the complexity of their character. The truly terrible villains of DC Comics have depths of cruelty that grow with them, and specific motivations driving them. In these pages, you will see these super-villains at the peak of their achievements; committing heinous acts of death and destruction, all to achieve a specific goal. They challenge the heroes and their ideals, seeing the caped and cowled figures as obstacles to be overcome. Compiled by several groups of hardcore fans, these 100 moments are the greatest (worst?) villainous acts in DC Comic book history. A summary of each super-villain brings new fans up to speed, from their origins to their most dastardly revivals. It's a great starting point for new readers or a nostalgic look for hardcore fans through the villains old and new.

Star Trek

release date: Nov 08, 2012
Star Trek
This is the first book to combine an authoritative history of the Star Trek franchise—including all six television series and eleven feature films—with anecdotes about the show from those who helped shape it from the outside in: the fans. Star Trek expert Robert Greenberger covers everything from show creator Gene Roddenberry’s initial plans for a series combining science-fiction and Western elements, the premiere of the original series in 1966, its cancellation, the franchise’s return in an animated series, and its subsequent history on television and film, up to expectations for the 2013 J.J. Abrams film. Along the way, Greenberger analyzes Star Trek’s unique cultural impact and tremendous cult following, including the famous (and first ever) save-the-show mail campaign. But this isn't a sugarcoated history; this book chronicles the missteps as well as the achievements of Roddenberry and others behind the franchise. Approximately two dozen sidebars provide personal experiences of dedicated Trekkies who influenced or became a part of the franchise. Star Trek fandom is unparalleled in the effects it has had on the franchise itself. The book is illustrated with a large collection of photographs of memorabilia, many of which have never been seen before in print.
