It begins in the year 1900, with the scream of a newborn. It ends, 100 pages later, in the year 2000, with the death-rattle of a 100-year-old man. The infant and the old man are both Julio, and Gilbert Hernandez's Julio's Day (originally serialized in Love and Rockets Vol. II but never completed until now) is his latest graphic novel, a masterpiece of elliptical, emotional storytelling that traces one life -- indeed, one century in a human life -- through a series of carefully crafted, consistently surprising and enthralling vignettes. There is hope and joy, there is bullying and grief, there is war (so much war -- this is after all the 20th century), there is love, there is heartbreak. This is very much a singular, standalone story that will help cement Hernandez's position as one of the strongest and most original cartoonists of this, or any other, century.

When she was only nine, Dayani Baldelomar left her Nicaraguan village with nothing more than a change of clothes. She was among tens of thousands of rural migrants to Managua in the 1980s and 1990s. After years of homelessness, Dayani landed in a shantytown called The Widows, squeezed between a drainage ditch and putrid Lake Managua. Her neighbor, Yadira Castellón, also migrated from the mountains. Driven by hope for a better future for their children, Dayani, Yadira, and their husbands invent jobs in Managua's spreading markets and dumps, joining the planet's burgeoning informal economy. But a swelling tide of family crises and environmental calamities threaten to break their toehold in the city. Dayani's and Yadira's struggles reveal one of the world's biggest challenges: by 2050, almost one-third of all people will likely live in slums without basic services, vulnerable to disasters caused by the convergence of climate change and breakneck urbanization. To tell their stories, Douglas Haynes followed Dayani's and Yadira's families for five years, learning firsthand how their lives in the city are a tightrope walk between new opportunities and chronic insecurity. Every Day We Live Is the Future is a gripping, unforgettable account of two women's herculean efforts to persevere and educate their children. It sounds a powerful call for understanding the growing risks to new urbanites, how to help them prosper, and why their lives matter for us all.

Julian Weizak, an obituary writer in New York, celebrates his birthday alone in a bar on New Year’s Eve. At the stroke of midnight, scores of homicides break out on the East Coast. In all, twenty thousand murders are committed that night in New York alone, with the epidemic spreading across the country and the world, time zone by time zone. Julian makes a startling discovery: the crisis day was every single murderer’s birthday. At midnight each day thereafter, nearly twenty million people around the world become homicidal maniacs, contributing to the biggest killing spree in history. It looks as if the chaos can lead to only one end: the extinction of humankind.

"It is our sincere hope that this book will mark a turning point in the spiritual evolution of this planet and its restoration to the galactic lineage of nations to which you belong. Make no mistake, this book has the power to change lives -- and Earth history, if you will let it!" -- The Sirian Council of 12 through Beverley Bright Star Familial Integrity is a series of diverse, exciting stories designed to unlock hidden pathways within the reader to reawaken ancient knowledge buried deep within the group consciousness of humanity. These stories explore in depth the concept of familial integrity, the moral foundation for the inhabitants of many other advanced planets and higher dimensions. This idea does not limit itself to the conventionally conceived family unit, but instead promotes harmony within the entire Earth family. When you learn to see all of humanity as your brothers and sisters, you can no longer let anyone starve or deny them adequate food or housing. You cannot cheat, lie, and steal from anyone -- let alone kill them -- when you fully acknowledge them as your own flesh and blood, the family members they truly are. This book outlines the necessary changes that humankind must make for the coming new age in practical ways that can be applied in our daily lives. When the principles of familial integrity are widely accepted, they will serve as a catalyst for global change among individuals and nations, bringing stability, peace, and love to the entire planet.
