GHETTO BROTHER: WARRIOR TO PEACEMAKER
By Julian Voloj, Claudia Ahlering

New printing! 
An engrossing and counter view of one of the most dangerous elements of American urban history, this graphic novel tells the true story of Benjy Melendez, son of Puerto-Rican immigrants, who founded, at the end of the 1960s, the notorious Ghetto Brothers gang. From the seemingly bombed-out ravages of his neighborhood, wracked by drugs, poverty, and violence, he managed to extract an incredibly positive energy from this riot ridden era: his multiracial gang promoted peace rather than violence.

After initiating a gang truce, the Ghetto Brothers held weekly concerts on the streets or in abandoned buildings, which fostered the emergence of hip-hop. Melendez also began to reclaim his Jewish roots after learning about his family’s dramatic crypto-Jewish background.
6×9, 128pp., B&W, trade pb., $12.99; ISBN 978156163948951299; DIAMOND CODE: SEP18 1891

THOREAU, A SUBLIME LIFE
By A. Dan, Maximilien Le Roy


9781681120256.jpg

“To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school, but so to love wisdom as to live according to its dictates, a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity and trust.”

This graphic novel biography relates the forward looking inspirational life of the great author, philosopher and pioneering ecologist. Henry David Thoreau was also the father of the concept, still fresh today (viz ‘Occupy Wall St.’), of ‘civil disobedience’ which he used against slavery and the encroachment of government.

8 ½ x 11, 88pp, full color hardcover, $19.99, ISBN 978168112025651999; DIAMOND CODE: SEP18 1892
