Descripción DARK HORSE COMICS, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. After the bombs fell and shook the walls of Nanjing, the Imperial Japanese Army entered and seized the Chinese capital. Through the dust of the demolished buildings, screams echo off the rubble. Two abandoned Chinese soldiers are trapped and desperately outnumbered inside the walled city. What they ll encounter will haunt them. But in the face of horror, they ll learn that resistance and bravery cannot be destroyed by the enemy. Ethan Young ( Tails ) delves into World War II s forgotten tragedy, the devastating Japanese invasion of Nanjing, and tells a heart-wrenching tale of war, loss, and defiance. Beautifully illustrated in black and white. In Nanjing, cartoonist Ethan Young tells an intimate story against an epic landscape. Bold, heart-breaking, and gorgeously rendered. Eisner and Printz Award-winner Gene Luen Yang (Boxers Saints, American Born Chinese) Young s decision not to glorify violence or titillate the reader in any way avoids a common pitfall and heightens the drama. This is stunning, stirring historical fiction by a creator at the height of his craft. (Starred review) Publishers Weekly Young s is just one chapter in an overwhelmingly grievous episode of the 20th century. The specifics might be fictional amidst a historical backdrop, but in creating names, depicting individual faces both living and dead, Young conjures a haunting microcosm amidst a horrifying event of epic proportions. Smithsonian APAC Bookdragon A rugged black and white style . a little Kubert, a little Tardi. The Beat Nanjing: The Burning City deserves a spot alongside not only historical comics, but wartime prose and non-fiction as well. It s not often that an author can so skillfully evoke powerful emotion while telling a complex and long-forgotten story and this book is an excellent, necessary addition to the genre. The A.V. Club Haunting and powerful, Nanjing is a moving tribute to an event which needs to be remembered, as much as we d like to forget it. Eisner and Harvey Award-winning author Derek Kirk Kim ( Same Difference, Tune ) Young s expressive, thoughtful line work takes full advantage of comics power. Nanjing reads effortlessly while begging the eyes to savor each page. A triumph at the very soul of the medium, a perfect marriage of Toth and Tatsumi. Eisner Award-winning writer/artist Nate Powell ( March, Swallow Me Whole ). Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9781616557522

Descripción Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2017. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 231 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. For fans of Ender s Game, Red Rising, and The Hunger Games comes an explosive, epic science fiction debut. Cities vanished, gone in flashes of world-shattering destruction. An alien race had come to make Earth theirs, bringing a power so far beyond human technology it seemed like magic. It was nearly the end of the world until we learned to seize the power, and use it to fight back. The war has raged for five centuries. For a cadet like Jax, one of the few who can harness the enemy s universe-altering force, that means growing up in an elite military academy, training for battle at the front and hoping he is ready. For Naomi, young nomad roaming the wilds of a ruined Earth, it means a daily fight for survival against the savage raiders who threaten her caravan. When a new attack looms, these two young warriors find their paths suddenly intertwined. Together with a gifted but reckless military commander, a factory worker drafted as cannon fodder, a wild and beautiful gunfighter, and a brilliant scientist with nothing to lose they must find a way to turn back the coming invasion, or see their home finally and completely destroyed.

Descripción James Currey, United Kingdom, 2010. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book is designed as a tribute and response to Yvonne Vera s famous novel Butterfly Burning, which is set in the Bulawayo townships in 1946 and dedicated to the author. It is an attempt to explore what historical research and reconstruction can add to the literary imagination. Responding as it does to a novel, this history imitates some fictional modes. Two of its chapters are in effect scenes , dealing with brief periods of intense activity. Others are in effect biographies of characters . The book draws upon and quotes from a rich body of urban oral memory. In addition to this historical/literary interaction the book is a contribution to the historiography of southern African cities, bringing out the experiential and cultural dimensions, and combining black and white urban social history. TERENCE RANGER is Emeritus Rhodes Professor of Race Relations, University of Oxford. Zimbabwe: Weaver Press. Nº de ref. de la librería AAH9781847010209
