2. Clan Apis

Read Review
Active Synapse proudly presents the only official hardcover edition of the award-winning Clan Apis! The life cycle and natural environment of the honeybee becomes the story kernel for Dr. Jay Hosler, a professor of biology as well as a cartoonist and storyteller. Opening with a honeybee-centered creation myth, we work through the many real biological, sociological, and ecological changes affecting the life of Nyuki, a brand new honeybee. The interior pages are fully illustrated with clean lines in crisp black and white. The text itself is a combination of authoritative science wrapped in a witty dialogue replete with humor, pubescent angst, terrible puns, heart-warming charm, and so much more. Nyuki matures as her colony undertakes migration to a new hive, is beset upon by enemies, and hibernates through a winter that yields to a revitalizing spring. The bee characters are nicely individualized as are the friendly plants and other talking insects that figure into their lives. All in all, this is the sort of wholesome story that will appeal to everyone, readers and non-readers alike, while sneaking in a little science education as a bonus. Suitable for all ages and makes an excellent gift.

Read Review
· The U.S. theatrical release of Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea is expected in April 2009. ·         Ponyo had over $100 million at the box office in Japan. With the population difference, this is equivalent to Batman The Dark Knight’s $400-$500 million at the box office in the U.S.

· The character of Ponyo – a goldfish who becomes a young girl – is very, very cute.

· Ponyo storyline is more familiar to Western audiences than previous Miyazaki films

· Ecological themes make the book very timely, especially for children.

· Ponyo will likely be more popular than prior Miyazaki films at the US box office; we can also expect DVD sales of more than 500,000 (Spirited Away did 400,000 after release).

· Ponyo film extremely likely to be nominated for Academy award for animated feature. (Backlist selling opportunity).

Relive the story of Ponyo and Sosuke in this full-color movie art book!
 

From the animators of Howl’s Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke and Academy Award winner Spirited Away, comes the new Studio Ghibli film Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea.

 

Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid, is a hand-drawn feature-length film. The art of the film involves not only cel, but also striking watercolor and pastel concept sketches and layout pages. Interviews with productiin principals about their daring choice to hand draw a film in the age of CGI and the screenplay complete the package.

Forged in heaven, it is called Kusanagi, the Grasscutter–the lost sword of the Gods. This legendary blade could potentially tip the scales of power for the shadowy Conspiracy of Eight in their quest to overthrow the Shogunate and reinstate the Emperor. With the help of a witch and the souls of dead warriors, they plan to recover the lost sword and bring the Shogun down. But when the fates place the Grasscutter in the hands of masterless samurai Usagi Yojimbo, the ronin rabbit becomes the focus of a deadly struggle for possession of the dread blade. And this crisis pales beside the dark possibilities should the sword come to the demonic warrior, Jei! Grasscutter collects Dark Horse Usagi Yojimbo issues 13-22, Stan Sakai’s longest and most ambitious Usagi tale to date: a sweeping epic showcasing one of comics’ most individual artistic voices at the peak of his creative skills.

  • Samm Schwartz was one of the main Archie artists in the 1950s and 1960s. He worked on all the major Archie characters, but is most remembered for his portrayal of Jughead. Jughead in particular was a highpoint for Schwartz. Samm’s greatest talents were his storytelling ability, depicting facial expressions and body language. But the key ingredient along with his talent, was his keen sense of humor that brought the characters to life.

27. Les Aventures de Tintin: L’Ile Noire (French Edition of The Black Island)

by: Herge
Release date: Sep 15, 2000
Number of Pages: 61
Find in Library
Read Review
The Adventures of Tintin (Les Aventures de Tintin) is a series of comic strips created by Belgian artist Herge the pen name of Georges Remi (1907 1983). The series first appeared in French in Le Petit Vingtieme, a children’s supplement to the Belgian newspaper Le Vingtieme Siecle on 10 January 1929. Set in a painstakingly researched world closely mirroring our own, Herge’s Tintin series continues to be a favorite of readers and critics alike 80 years later.
The hero of the series is Tintin, a young Belgian reporter. He is aided in his adventures from the beginning by his faithful fox terrier dog Snowy (Milou in French). Later, popular additions to the cast included the brash, cynical and grumpy Captain Haddock, the bright but hearing-impaired Professor Calculus (Professeur Tournesol) and other colorful supporting characters such as the incompetent detectives Thomson and Thompson (Dupond et Dupont). Herge himself features in several of the comics as a background character; as do his assistants in some instances.
The success of the series saw the serialized strips collected into a series of albums (24 in all), spun into a successful magazine and adapted for film and theatre. The series is one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century, with translations published in over 50 languages and more than 200 million copies of the books sold to date.
The comic strip series has long been admired for its clean, expressive drawings in Herge’s signature ligne claire style. Engaging, well-researched plots straddle a variety of genres: swashbuckling adventures with elements of fantasy, mysteries, political thrillers, and science fiction. The stories within the Tintin series always feature slapstick humor, accompanied in later albums by sophisticated satire, and political and cultural commentary.
