Some suggestions of recent releases:


PHOOLAN DEVI, REBEL QUEEN
Claire Fauvel

She rebelled against the ancient tribal rules of India, her country, resulting in her becoming a Robin Hood type bandit. Essentially sold at the age of 11 to become a wife for a much older man, she ran away when he raped her. From that point on, there were few choices for her but to join a roaming gang of bandits, her ambition leading her to become their rebel chief. Ultimately, society caught up with her and she even became a strong voice for change as a representative in the Indian parliament.

A story of courage and unbending determination in front of centuries of established inequities in the classic Indian caste system. For mature readers.


STARRED REVIEW. A woman operating with an eye-for-an-eye attitude is a rare and powerful thing, and this heroic tale of Phoolan’s journey from despair and abuse to justice and renown, is intoxicating.” –Library Journal

“This striking biography is as memorable as its vigilante heroine.” –Publishers Weekly



BOB MARLEY IN COMICS

Gaet’s, Sophie Blitman

In the middle of a depressing youth in a ghetto of Kingston, Jamaica, Robert Nesta Marley sees only one way out: music. And that music will be what Jamaica made of rock and pop locally that had hardly been heard anywhere else: reggae! It is Marley who brings the unmistakable beat of reggae to the entire world.

From small stages in Jamaica, his partners of the Wailers accompany him all the way to the most fabulous world tours and adulation. Beyond a rocketing musical career, the most famous rasta wants to shake things up and proclaim all over his humanitarian and egalitarian values.


“One of the most anticipated graphic novels of Winter 2020.” –ComicsBeat

“Without any doubt Bob Marley and comics fans will be very pleased.” –
Reggae Vibes

“The narrative is accessible, the chronology clear, and the story acknowledges both the strengths and weaknesses of character in this iconic Jamaican figure.” –Booklist


RODIN
Eddy Simon, Joel Alessandra

This comics biography of one of the greatest sculptors who ever lived is done with the collaboration of the Rodin Museum and includes a preface by its director. It views his life through the eyes of the three women who shared his life for good or for bad. One was his lifelong on and off companion, the other two his muses, one of which was Camille Claudel, a well-recognized sculptor herself.

Rodin’s work was revolutionary in conveying exceptional passion, transcending the stone. Here’s how that happened.


“Recommended for art history buffs.” –Booklist

“An excellent introduction to the artist, and one with deep insights for art experts.” -Peter Dabbene, Foreword Reviews


750cc DOWN LINCOLN HIGHWAY
Bernard Chambaz, Barroux

“I hate marathons. Hate running. An hour before the start, I received a text. Instead of ‘Good luck,’ it was ‘We’re finished.’

So, I went to a bar next to the subway on 96th. Had a few bourbons with some other mope. Then I got on a bike and took off down the old Lincoln Highway.”

Forget Route 66. This is the original cross-country highway that takes you through REAL America, the first to cross all of the US from the Big Apple to the City on the Bay.

This is THE road trip. On a 750cc bike.


“One of the most anticipated graphic novels of Winter 2020.” –ComicsBeat

“Like a Gallic Jim Jarmusch road movie (though shorter), this slim motorcycle diary has its moments.” –Publishers Weekly
