Liz and Michele Are Recommending:

Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas’s epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. ’Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearstome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.

Reimagined in glorious iambic pentameter—and complete with twenty gorgeous Elizabethan illustrations--William Shakespeare’s Star Wars will astound and edify Rebels and Imperials alike. Zounds! This is the book you’re looking for.

As a part of the acclaimed DC Comics - The New 52 event of September 2011, comics legend George Perez and artist Jesus Merino present the new adventures of the Man of Steel!

Metropolis fears him. The Daily Planet agrees. This new volume of SUPERMAN finds our hero with a startling new status quo. As Superman finds ways to dodge the scrutiny placed upon him by the public and media, he must stop a monstrous threat to Metropolis - one that he somehow is the cause of! The next chapter in the legendary history of the Man of Steel is built here!

Tucked away high in the Himalayas, a long dormant evil has made these snowy mountain tops its home.  Helspont, a decendant of the ancient alien race of Daemonites, has enlisted an army of robots to obtain all there is to know about the Kryptonian meanace standing between him and dominion over the people of Earth.  Can Helspont gain control over Superman and use him to execute his invasion plan?  Or will the Earth's alien protector cast Helspont back to the planet of Daemon?

Collects Superman #7-12, Superman Annual #1.
