In the comics boom of the 1940s, a legend was born: the Green Turtle. He solved crimes and fought injustice just like the other comics characters. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity... The Green Turtle was the first Asian American super hero. The comic had a short run before lapsing into obscurity, but the acclaimed author of American Born Chinese, Gene Luen Yang, has finally revived this character in Shadow Hero, a new graphic novel that creates an origin story for the Green Turtle. With artwork by Sonny Liew, this gorgeous, funny comics adventure for teens is a new spin on the long, rich tradition of American comics lore.

Baltimore was once a vibrant manufacturing town, but today, with factory closings and steady job loss since the 1970s, it is home to some of the most impoverished neighborhoods in America. The Hero's Fight provides an intimate look at the effects of deindustrialization on the lives of Baltimore’s urban poor, and sheds critical light on the unintended consequences of welfare policy on our most vulnerable communities. Drawing on her own uniquely immersive brand of fieldwork, conducted over the course of a decade in the neighborhoods of West Baltimore, Patricia Fernández-Kelly tells the stories of people like D. B. Wilson, Big Floyd, Towanda, and others whom the American welfare state treats with a mixture of contempt and pity—what Fernández-Kelly calls "ambivalent benevolence." She shows how growing up poor in the richest nation in the world involves daily interactions with agents of the state, an experience that differs significantly from that of more affluent populations. While ordinary Americans are treated as citizens and consumers, deprived and racially segregated populations are seen as objects of surveillance, containment, and punishment. Fernández-Kelly provides new insights into such topics as globalization and its effects on industrial decline and employment, the changing meanings of masculinity and femininity among the poor, social and cultural capital in poor neighborhoods, and the unique roles played by religion and entrepreneurship in destitute communities. Blending compelling portraits with in-depth scholarly analysis, The Hero’s Fight explores how the welfare state contributes to the perpetuation of urban poverty in America.

A tour-de-force by rising indy comics star Gene Yang, American Born Chinese tells the story of three apparently unrelated characters: Jin Wang, who moves to a new neighborhood with his family only to discover that he's the only Chinese-American student at his new school; the powerful Monkey King, subject of one of the oldest and greatest Chinese fables; and Chin-Kee, a personification of the ultimate negative Chinese stereotype, who is ruining his cousin Danny's life with his yearly visits. Their lives and stories come together with an unexpected twist in this action-packed modern fable. American Born Chinese is an amazing ride, all the way up to the astonishing climax. American Born Chinese is a 2006 National Book Award Finalist for Young People's Literature, the winner of the 2007 Eisner Award for Best Graphic Album: New, an Eisner Award nominee for Best Coloring and a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

The Shadow Hero Workbook; Lessons to purify the Hero archetype in you; Healthy vs. Unhealthy Hero behavior; Unconscious Patterns 201 (38 pages original material on this topic) Is there anyone NOT purifying their gifts and talents from Shadow Hero behaviors? Possibly the first book in Hero Archetype literature attempting systematic access to disturbed sub- and unconscious Hero patterns; along with, therapeutic directions for resolving them. 18 short lessons designed to increase awareness of dysfunctional Hero patterns. 18 categories of functional and dysfunctional hero behavior are outlined. Therapeutic direction are suggested to clear each, using any method of your own choosing. NOT another Hero story. NOT a rehash of Campbell's hero cycle. The Workbook is stages of the Hero's cycle re-arranged by psychological category, as possible to do. Surprisingly, the lens of the Shadow Hero metaphor, enables us to to view most human problems. Virtually all of our modern problems can be discerned thru this lens. The moral and ethical shortcomings of Wall Street's culture of greed are wholly Shadow Hero behaviors. "The American Dream;" and, Horatio Alger rags to riches, are heroic myths. The Shadow Hero lens lays bare what needs purifying in our behavior based on these archetypes. Let's be willing to be more aware and work on them in our spare time. That's all we can do. I recommend working thru no more than one lesson per day on your self. Remember, as Arthur Clarke said, "focusing on pathological behavior to an excessive degree, is pathological in itself." The returning Prodigal Son focuses on being back in the Home of his Father and how that wonderful this will be. All shadow behavior tends to be UNconscious. We're only most conscious of our waking human experience from the neck-up. Still, we remain responsible for all habits-expressions from the two lower thirds of our psyche, sub- and unconscious. Also for coaches and therapists designing workshops around the Hero's Journey. Flesh out these insights into sequences of fun, social, interactive group processes for groups. The author is available to give trainings if you need to see how this is done so you can do it too. A companion to the 2014 work, Unconscious Patterns 101, Tools for the Hero's Journey of Self-healing https: //www.createspace.com/4899109 Were you encouraged or frustrated to play Hero or Rescuer as a child? Intuition to act out and purify our Shadow Hero is a driving force of our Child within, our Child archetype. Did you play and act out Hero behaviors (more masculine) or Rescuer behaviors (more feminine) or both as a child? The drive of our inner Hero must be channeled into expression, direction and purpose. If this does not occur, this drive can ferment, corrupt and become Shadow Hero behaviors, self-focused into negative, unproductive expressions. Unpurified Shadow Hero behaviors can be worked on and slowly purified by practice of any method practiced regularly. This can be artistic: painting, dancing, muscle-testing, calculus, mothering, writing, counseling, etc. The more self-mastery we have, easier it is to take an honest look at what lurks in the shadows of our own psyche. Concludes with The Hero's Journey as Soul Journey The Hero Prodigal Son

A stunning literary thriller in the tradition of Umberto Eco. The discovery of a forgotten book leads to a hunt for an elusive author who may or may not still be alive... Hidden in the heart of the old city of Barcelona is the 'cemetery of lost books', a labyrinthine library of obscure and forgotten titles that have long gone out of print. To this library, a man brings his 10-year-old son Daniel one cold morning in 1945. Daniel is allowed to choose one book from the shelves and pulls out 'La Sombra del Viento' by Julian Carax. But as he grows up, several people seem inordinately interested in his find. Then, one night, as he is wandering the old streets once more, Daniel is approached by a figure who reminds him of a character from La Sombra del Viento, a character who turns out to be the devil. This man is tracking down every last copy of Carax's work in order to burn them. What begins as a case of literary curiosity turns into a race to find out the truth behind the life and death of Julian Carax and to save those he left behind. A page-turning exploration of obsession in literature and love, and the places that obsession can lead.

To save a country, a girl and her grandfather must learn what it means to be a hero The greatest hero in the history of Varina was baptized in a cave. Every schoolchild knows the story. His parents were on their way to the city when a storm drove them to take shelter in the mountainside, along with a priest, a bandit, and a scholar. When the storm did not abate, they asked the priest to give their child a name, and he christened the boy Restaur Vax. The boy would grow to be a warrior, a scholar, and a man of god, and his name would lead an oppressed people to independence for the first time. Alas, that liberty would not survive. Generations later, Vax’s oldest living descendant is in London, teaching the language of Varina to his inquisitive young granddaughter. When his homeland is torn apart once more by war, calls come for this man to take up the mantle of the Vax name—and become a hero for a new age. This ebook features an illustrated personal history of Peter Dickinson including rare images from the author’s collection.
