Shanghai, November 1937. Yaya, the eight-year-old daughter of a diamond merchant, lives a life of luxury in the French Concession in Shanghai. Her one great passion is the piano. While she is preparing for an important audition, her father decides that the family must leave town in the face of the imminent Japanese invasion. The evening before all the family is to leave, stubborn Yaya, unaware of the danger, runs away in an attempt to make it to her audition come what may. On the way, in the midst of the crowd fleeing the Japanese offensive, She is caught in a bombardment. She owes her life to Tuduo, a street urchin who discovers her unconscious in the ruins of a house. With his help, Yaya learns that her family fled for Hong Kong without her, and she determines to go join them there right away. Tuduo begins to dream about what his life would be like if Yaya's parents welcomed him and his little brother into their beautiful home. He decides to go along with Yaya on her long and perilous journey. But before he can do anything, he must escape from the clutches of Zhu, who runs a gang of homeless boys. When Zhu learns that Tuduo's little protégée is from a very wealthy family, he comes up with a Machiavellian plot to kidnap her and collect a ransom. Tuduo and Yaya barely manage to get away and head off for the south. But Zhu, a heartless outlaw, doesn't give up so easily and comes after them, driven by his high hopes of cashing in on the ransom scheme. This nine-volume series chronicles their long journey fraught with perils. The children meet all sorts of people, both friendly and wicked, as they travel toward Hong Kong. Yaya and Tuduo are different in every way: social background, character, dreams, and desires. These children learn many growing lessons along the way, not the least of which is to judge a person on their character, not their social or financial status. The gloom of war, its absurd tragedy, gives way to the incredible capacity of youth to overwhelm grim reality. Imagination is the only thing these children have to defend themselves against adults who are like the ogres, evil fairies, or good witches of bedtime tales. Their imagination gives the story a touch of poetry, while humor brings a lighter touch to a story that is steeped in genuine historical tragedy.

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?
