The aftermath of “THE BUTTON” has left Barry Allen—the Fastest Man Alive, known as the Flash—at a crossroads. Can he continue lying to the woman he loves about his secret identity? Can he mend his broken relationship with Kid Flash? Green Lantern Hal Jordan offers some advice, but Flash doesn’t have much time to make a decision, courtesy of the return of his greatest enemy, the time-traveling Reverse-Flash! Eobard Thawne has taken Iris West to the 25th century to reveal Barry Allen’s most closely guarded secrets to her…before killing Iris and the Flash! Following them to the future, Flash finally learns why his arch-foe from the future hates him so much, but even that knowledge may not be enough to give him a fighting chance against a villain who knows all his possible futures. Following the events of “THE BUTTON,” the future unfolds as never before in THE FLASH VOL. 4: RUNNING SCARED, the epic adventure from writer Joshua Williamson and artists Carmine Di Giandomenico and Howard Porter. Collects THE FLASH #23-27!

But he’s also so much more. As he learns more about the Speed Force that fuels his incredible powers, the Flash is also discovering secrets about his past beyond anything he’d ever dreamed-how he created a Flashpoint that changed history and helped create a new world, watched over by forces unknown.

But while some may become his partners in crime-fighting-forming a true “Speed Force”-others will use their godlike powers for a more sinister purpose. And the Flash is about to learn that there’s some evil even he can’t outrun… The race is on as writer Joshua Williamson (DEATHSTROKE) and artist Carmine di Giandomenico (All New X-Factor) present THE FLASH VOL. 1: LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE-the starting line of a bold new era for the Scarlet Speedster, bursting from the blockbuster DC Universe Rebirth event!

Asian American resistance to Orientalism -- the Western tradition dealing with the subject and subjugation of the East -- is usually assumed. And yet, as this provocative work demonstrates, in order to refute racist stereotypes they must first be evoked, and in the process the two often become entangled. Sheng-mei Ma shows how the distinguished careers of post-1960s Asian American writers such as Maxine Hong Kingston, Amy Tan, Frank Chin, and David Henry Hwang reveal that while Asian American identity is constructed in reaction to Orientalism, the two cultural forces are not necessarily at odds. The vigor with which these Asian Americans revolt against Orientalism in fact tacitly acknowledges the family lineage of the two.

Superman and Comic Book Brand Continuity traces the development of comic book continuity through the case study of Superman, examining the character’s own evolution across several media, including comics, radio, television, and film. Superman’s relationship with continuity illustrates a key feature of the way in which people in western societies construct stories about themselves. In this respect, the book is a study of narrative and how comic book continuity reflects the way that, in wider western post-enlightenment culture, storytelling shapes the common sense and received wisdoms that influence how we perceive "reality." The scope of the analysis extends from Superman’s creation in the late 1930s to the recent films Man of Steel (2013) and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), as well as the current comic book reboot Rebirth (2016).

THE QUALITY COMPANION provides the first dedicated look at the prolific Golden Age publisher which spawned a treasure trove of beautiful art and classic characters, including the modern-day “Freedom Fighters”—UNCLE SAM, PHANTOM LADY, BLACK CONDOR, THE RAY, HUMAN BOMB, and DOLL MAN—as well as PLASTIC MAN, the BLACKHAWKS, and others now under the DC Comics umbrella. It provides the first-ever A-Z in-depth character profile of every Quality costumed hero, many of whom were superbly-produced but are now long-forgotten. It also reprints, in FULL-COLOR, several 1940s key stories of these characters from such rare 1940s collector’s items as SMASH COMICS, POLICE COMICS, NATIONAL COMICS, FEATURE COMICS, and CRACK COMICS, and features Golden Age art by the top artistic talents of that era, including LOU FINE, REED CRANDALL, JACK COLE, CHUCK CUIDERA, MATT BAKER, WILL EISNER, and others! There’s a contextual chronology, a unique oral history featuring commentary by many of the major Quality creators and their progeny, and studies that shed new light on Will Eisner's relationship with Quality! Plus: It covers the characters’ revival from the 1970s to today, including Plastic Man’s short-lived 1960s series, the classic Justice League/Justice Society crossover that introduced the Quality characters into the DC Comics universe, the Freedom Fighters’ own 1970s series, plus the Ray and Black Condor series of the 1990s, up through the current versions of the characters at DC. Creators who were instrumental in the revival of the characters from the 1970s to today are interviewed, including ROY THOMAS, LEN WEIN, JIMMY PALMIOTTI and others! There’s also a new cover drawn especially for this book by the late DICK GIORDANO! Written by Mike Kooiman with Jim Amash.

Ein tödliches Virus verbreitet sich rasend schnell über die Vereinigten Staaten. Die schiere Größe und Professionalität dieser Aktion lässt auf eine kaltblütige und bestens organisierte Terroristengruppe schließen, die die USA ins Visier nimmt. Oder etwa nicht? Sitzt der Feind womöglich im Inneren? Sind hier noch weit mächtigere Interessen im Spiel als es den Anschein hat? Mit dieser Geschichte legen Robert Venditti und Mike Huddleston einen Thriller der Extraklasse vor, der nicht nur grafisch besticht, sondern auch ein echter Pageturner ist. Ganz nebenbei stellt dieser Comic die Frage nach dem Preis der Freiheit, wenn Sicherheit zur Religion wird.

Der Krieg im Irak lässt die Männer aus der kleinen Stadt Tumalo in Oregon verschwinden – und mit den Männern die Väter, die ihre Söhne verlassen, um zu kämpfen. Zurück bleiben Söhne, deren Tapferkeit und Zuversicht schwinden, während sie zu Hause vor ihren Laptops sitzen und die Mails ihrer Väter von der Front wieder und wieder lesen. Viele der jungen Männer in Benjamin Percys atemberaubenden Geschichten stammen aus zerbrochenen Familien, finden keinen Halt in ihren Freundeskreisen und müssen das Undenkbare tun, um sich – und allen – zu beweisen, dass sie stark genug sind, um sich dem Schmerz dieser Welt zu stellen. Percy siedelt seine Erzählungen im ländlichen Oregon an, seine Helden kämpfen, jeder für sich. Ihre Gegner sind höchst unterschiedlich: ein verrückter Bär, ein Haus mit einem Keller, der sich in eine Höhle öffnet, ein Unfall, der den geliebten Menschen das Leben kostet, eine Fehlgeburt, die ein Paar sprachlos zurücklässt und einander entfremdet. Eines haben all ihre Kämpfe gemeinsam: Immer sind es die Narben, die ihre Geschichten erzählen, selbst wenn sie unsichtbar sind.
