Comics & Graphic Novels: Superheroes

Comics lovers, rejoice! In recent years, comic books have changed from lurid, flimsy rags sold in the racks of newsstands to sturdier, respected works of real literature. Titles like Blankets, Watchmen, and Sandman have blown away the format's perceived limitations, and a wave of popular Japanese comics, or manga, has exposed a whole new generation of readers to the possibilities of comic books. We're proud to announce that Amazon.com has created a Comics & Graphic Novels Store, where you'll find all the genre has to offer--from superheroes and comic-strip characters to comedy and drama. Visit our store today and discover the power of little pictures.
Superheroes
They're more than muscle-bound mutants in tights and capes--they're superheroes. Whether you're seeking Wonder Woman, Superman, the Green Lantern, or Spiderman, you'll find them all in our Comics & Graphic Novels Store.
Catwoman by Scott Beatty, Dorling Kindersley Publishing.  She may not necessarily be a hero, but she does look great in that suit! Batman's feline nemesis and occasional paramour Catwoman gets her due in Catwoman: The Visual Guide. Order your copy now. It's bound to be a purr-fect treat.
Mythology by Alex Ross (Author) His drawings are bigger, brighter, and bolder than life--just like the characters they portray. Much more than a comics retrospective, Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross deserves a prominent spot on the coffee table alongside mainstream contemporary art books.
The Science of Superheroes by Lois H. Gresh (Author), Robert Weinberg (Author) Could gamma rays really turn someone into the Incredible Hulk? How did that spider's abilities get transferred to Peter Parker? And why doesn't Superman's suit rip when bullets bounce off his chest? Find answers to similar questions and more in the highly entertaining The Science of Superheroes.

Alex Ross Terminator by Ron Fortier (Author), Alex Ross (Illustrator) In Terminator: The Burning Earth, the war between man and machine is about to reach its brutal conclusion--and only one side will survive! Led by an adult John Connor, the resistance movement has battled its way to the gates of Skynet's Colorado stronghold; the loss of life along the journey has been great, but humanity at last has an opportunity to destroy the super-computer that's long sought to exterminate all life on the planet. One problem, though: A new kind of Terminator is waiting for Connor and his soldiers--and she will let nothing stop her from killing the rebel leader ...

Little Pictures, Big Stories
Just because a story's delivered in a series of tiny pictures doesn't make it a bad story. Fans of graphic novels know the medium is the perfect vehicle for deep, thoughtful stories, heart-pounding adventures, or classic weird tales.
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (Author) Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood is an autobiographical graphic novel telling the tale of Iran's Islamic Revolution through the eyes of young Marjane Satrapi. Growing up amid relatives' stories of torture under the Shah, as well as the real war and oppression in her country, Satrapi weaves a powerful tale that's both touching and disturbing, reminiscent of Art Spiegelman's Maus: A Survivor's Tale.
The Best of Ray Bradbury by Ray Bradbury (Author) Some of the greatest practitioners of comic-book art, including Dave Gibbons (Watchmen), Mike Mignola (Hellboy), and P. Craig Russell (Sandman), illustrate the classic stories of a science fiction legend. The Best of Ray Bradbury: The Graphic Novel includes such fantastic tales as "Come into My Cellar," "The Golden Apples of the Sun," and "Homecoming."
