Sword Art Online Progressive 1 (Light Novel)

Reki Kawahara

$14.00 $13.02

For this month I chose a light novel. However it can also be found in the form of manga, however I have the most experience with the light novel and that's the one I recommend. Unlike the anime for Sword Art Online the Sword Art Online Progressive series which is written by Reki Kawahara and the art is done by abec, it doesn't rush through the storyline as much and fills in the pieces. We get to see a side of Asuna (Main female character while Kirito is the main male character.) that we don't see in the anime, we get to see her personality and her life before Sword Art Online. We have video games, death, depressing subject matters, emotional moments, and thought thinking moments.It's also one of the few Science Fiction series that I actually like. Every thought about being trapped in a video game? Then this series might just be for you.

Ken Quattro

Using primary source material from World War II-era Black newspapers and magazines, this book profiles pioneers like E.C. Stoner, a descendant of a person enslaved by George Washington, who became a renowned fine artist of the Harlem Renaissance and the first Black artist to draw comic books; Owen Middleton, who was sentenced to life in Sing Sing; and Matt Baker, the most revered of the Black artists, whose art spotlights stunning women and men, and who drew the first groundbreaking Black comic book hero, Vooda! Includes examples of each artist's work, with full stories from mainstream comic books with rare titles like All-Negro Comics and Negro Heroes, plus unpublished artist's photos.

Run: Book One

Run: Book One

John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, et al.

$24.99 $23.24

To John Lewis, the civil rights movement came to an end with the signing of the Voting Rights Act in 1965. But that was after more than five years as one of the preeminent figures of the movement, leading sit-in protests and fighting segregation on interstate busways as an original Freedom Rider. It was after becoming chairman of SNCC (the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee) and being the youngest speaker at the March on Washington. It was after helping organize the Mississippi Freedom Summer and the ensuing delegate challenge at the 1964 Democratic National Convention. And after coleading the march from Selma to Montgomery on what became known as "Bloody Sunday." All too often, the depiction of history ends with a great victory. But John Lewis knew that victories are just the beginning. In Run: Book One, John Lewis and longtime collaborator Andrew Aydin reteam with Nate Powell--the award-winning illustrator of the March trilogy--and are joined by L. Fury--making an astonishing graphic novel debut--to tell this often overlooked chapter of civil rights history.
