In four original tales, the family of Supers face challenges of life and villainy--growing up, older, and into their special powers, as they fight together against the bad guys who make heroes like Bob, Helen, Dash, Violet, and Jack-Jack, necessary. When Mr. Incredible struggles to save the day after a villainous attack--and the dastardly Bomb Voyage escapes unscathed--he begins to question his powers. But when he discovers that he's just getting a little older, Bob is inspired to look to the next generation of Supers, Dash and Violet, and begins training with them so that they can become the most incredible ever! Helen has reservations about the training, and when she sees Bob getting a little carried away after Dash and Violet make a couple of rookie mistakes, her fears are realized: intense training with their dad is souring Dash and Violet on the idea of becoming better Supers. But the family must reunite . . . because Bomb Voyage is still at large! In another story, Bob tells the kids a bedtime story that has Violet and Dash calling foul: this battle from his glory days seems too amazing to be true. They want to hear the real story--but they never imagined it would begin with their mom and dad's super-secret first date! Then, in two adventures all his own, baby Jack-Jack uses his powers to make friends with an army of ants, and then take on a worthy opponent at the local park! The adventures of the Parr family--AKA, The Incredibles--continue in this super comics collection, written by Christos Gage (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Amazing Spider-Man), and Landry Q. Walker (Batman: The Brave and the Bold), and illustrated by Gurihiru (Avatar: The Last Airbender), J.Bone (The Rocketeer), and Andrea Greppi and Roberta Zanotta (DuckTales)!

This book explores the life of the controversial and historical figure, Mata Hari -- the exotic dancer, convicted double agent, and original femme fatale--told from her own perspective. It collects the five-issue series and includes additional historical material and an artist's sketchbook. Dancer. Courtesan. Spy. Executed by a French firing squad in 1917. One hundred years on from her death, questions are still raised about her conviction. Now, the lesser-known, often tragic story of the woman who claimed she was born a princess, and died a figure of public hatred, with no one to claim her body is told by break-out talent writer Emma Beeby (Judge Dredd), artist Ariela Kristantina (Insexts), and colorist Pat Masioni drawing on biographies and released MI5 files We meet Mata Hari in prison at the end of her life as she writes her memoir--part romantic tale of a Javanese princess who performed "sacred" nude dances for Europe's elite, and part real-life saga of a disgraced wife and mother, who has everything she loves taken from her. But, as she sits trial for treason and espionage, we hear another tale, of a flamboyant Dutch woman who became "the most dangerous spy France has ever captured"--a double agent who whored herself for secrets, lived a life of scandal and loved only money. Leading us to ask . . . who was the real Mata Hari?
