Eureka One bloody Sunday
Eureka One bloody Sunday
This
graphic book brings to life the struggles of daily life on the goldfields and
the powerful events of the Eureka stockade.



The extraordinary story of Eureka is one
that Australians have revisited since it happened in 1854. Why did British Army
Red Coats fire on a group of miners hidden behind a crude wooden stockade? Why
did soldiers from two famous British regiments attack a group of gold miners
early one Sunday morning? What made the miners and their families protest and
put their lives in danger?


This book brings alive life on the
Victorian goldfields. It tells us about power, settlement and the growth of the
colony. It tells us about rights, and what matters.


The central character in this book is a
boy called Bernie. Bernie lived with his parents on the goldfields and played a
key role in events leading up to the battle at the Eureka Stockade, despite his
age. He sees the murder of the miner that sparked armed protest. His family
were camped close by and were key witnesses. We see the growing unrest and the
fighting through his eyes.


The reader is challenged to investigate - like a detective, you must sift through different accounts and reach your own
understanding. People on both sides of the conflict believed that their actions
were correct and justifiable. Readers will see actual letters from the
governor, complaints from angry miners, as well as diaries and newspaper
articles. This is not a book you can read while watching television. It's so
gripping you won't want to.

Fire Story
Fire Story
Early morning on Monday, October 9, 2017, wildfires burned through Northern California, resulting in 44 fatalities. In addition, 6,200 homes and 8,900 structures and were destroyed. Author Brian Fies's firsthand account of this tragic event is an honest, unflinching depiction of his personal experiences, including losing his house and every possession he and his wife had that didn't fit into the back of their car. In the days that followed, as the fires continued to burn through the area, Brian hastily pulled together A Fire Story and posted it online-it immediately went viral. He is now expanding his original webcomic to include environmental insight and the fire stories of his neighbors and others in his community. A Fire Story is an honest account of the wildfires that left homes destroyed, families broken, and a community determined to rebuild.

Game of Thrones Graphic Novel 02
Game of Thrones Graphic Novel 02
George R. R. Martin's epic fantasy masterwork A Game of Thrones is brought to life in the pages of this full-colour graphic novel. This is the second volume in what is sure to be one of the most coveted collaborations of the year. Now a major Sky Atlantic TV series from HBO, featuring a stellar cast. Novelist Daniel Abraham and illustrator Tommy Patterson are not merely turning George R. R. Martin's epic fantasy A Game of Thrones into a graphic novel: They are meticulously translating one art form into another, and capturing the intricate nuances of Martin's novels just as HBO is doing with the blockbuster series. The Abraham/Patterson collaboration is more than just a faithful adaptation. It is a labor of love-and a thrilling masterwork in its own right. Now, in the second volume, the sweeping action moves from the icy north, where the bastard Jon Snow seeks to carve out a place for himself among bitter outcasts and hardened criminals sworn to service upon the Wall ...to the decadent south and the capital city of King's Landing, where Jon's father, Lord Eddard Stark, serves as the Hand of King Robert Baratheon amid a nest of courtly vipers ...to the barbarian lands across the Narrow Sea, where the young princess Daenerys Targaryen has found the unexpected in her forced marriage to the Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo: love-and with it, for the first time in her life, power.
Meanwhile, the dwarf Tyrion Lannister, accused by Lady Catelyn Stark of the attempted murder of her now-crippled youngest son, must call upon all his cunning and wit to survive when he is captured and imprisoned in the lofty dungeons of the Eyrie, where Lady Stark's sister-a woman obsessed with vengeance against all Lannisters-rules. But Catelyn's impulsive arrest of the Imp will set in motion a series of violent events whose outcome is fated to shake the world at the worst possible moment. For now is not the time for private feuds and bloodthirsty ambitions. Winter is coming ...and with it, terrors beyond imagining.

Grace Based on the Jeff Buckley Story
Grace Based on the Jeff Buckley Story
California, 1991. All his life, people have told Jeff Buckley how much he looks like his father, the famous '60s folksinger he barely knew. But Jeff believes he has a gift of his own: a rare, octave-spanning voice and a songwriting genius that has only started to show itself. After he falls in love with a mysterious girl from New York, he sets out to make a name for himself outside his father's shadow.

What follows are six turbulent years of music, heartbreak, hope, and daring-culminating in a tragedy that's still reverberating through the music world today. Written by Tiffanie DeBartolo and with art by Pascal Dizin and Lisa Reist, this graphic biography includes archival material provided by Jeff's mother, Mary Guibert, to reveal the young songwriter in the process of becoming a legend.

Guantanamo Kid
Guantanamo Kid
Saudi Arabia offers few prospects for the bright young Mohammed El-Gharani. With roots in Chad, Mohammed is treated like a second-class citizen. His access to healthcare and education are restricted; nor can he make the most of his entrepreneurial spirit. At the age of 14, having scraped together some money as a street trader, Mohammed seizes an opportunity to study in Pakistan. One Friday in Karachi, Mohammed is detained during a raid on his local mosque. After being beaten and interrogated, he is sold to the American government by the Pakistani forces as a member of Al-Qaida with links to Osama Bin Laden, but Mohammed has heard of neither. The Americans fly him first to Kandahar and then to Guantanamo Bay.

In Guantanamo Kid, Jerome Tubiana and Alexandre Franc tell the eye-opening, heart-wrenching story of one of Guantanamo's youngest detainees.
