ASSASSINISTAS #1 CVR A HERNANDEZ
OCT170405
(W) Tini Howard (A/CA) Gilbert Hernandez
Dominic Prince and the Semester Abroad, Part 1 of 6. Dominic Price is a college-age kid who just wants to spend the semester making out with his boyfriend, Taylor, in between rounds of TurboLight Fighter and maintaining a solidly passable 3.2 GPA. His mom, Octavia, formerly a badass action-movie-quality bounty hunter, didn't pay his tuition, because she had to get back in the business and spend 40K on black market weapons and body armor. And she's bringing Dominic with her, because the alternative is making lattes for a semester, and he'd rather die. Good thing in mom's line of work, dying is an option.

The Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon, is nearing completion, and the Rebel Alliance may be doomed. Enter Jyn Erso, daughter of the Death Star's reluctant creator, who desperately seeks to save her father from Imperial control. On her quest, she'll join forces with Rebel spy Cassian Andor, reprogrammed Imperial droid K-2SO, and other supporters of the Rebel cause, only to discover that their goals may differ crucially from her own. It all culminates in a saga-defining showdown on the tropical planet Scarif, with Jyn and her friends attempting to steal the Death Star's plans and keep hope for the Rebellion alive, leading directly into the iconic opening scene of Star Wars: Episode IV. The epic scope of Star Wars meets the signature style of Disney animation to deliver an entirely new experience for fans of the blockbuster film.

The story of screwball comics, with new research and rare art from some of the most hilarious cartoonists of all time.
 Â
Before "screwball" became a movie genre, it was a staple of other forms of American culture, including newspaper comic strips. Emerging from the pressures of a rapidly accelerating technological and information-drenched society, screwball comics offered a healthy dose of laughter and perspective. Comics scholar Paul C. Tumey traces the development of screwball as a genre in magazine cartoons and newspaper comics, presenting the lives and work of around two dozen cartoonists, with an art-stuffed chapter on each.
 Â
Screwball! offers a wealth of previously un-reprinted comics, unleashing fresh views of some of America's greatest and most-loved cartoonists, including George Herriman (Krazy Kat), E.C. Segar (creator of Popeye), Winsor McCay (Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend), Rube Goldberg (The Inventions of Professor Lucifer G. Butts, A.K.) and Bill Holman (Smokey Stover). In addition, readers will be delighted to discover previously "lost" screwball masters including Gene Ahern (The Squirrel Cage), Gus Mager (Sherlocko the Monk), Milt Gross (Count Screwloose), George Swanson ($alesman $am) and many others.
