Listening to the Hundredfold Notes of the Avowed Nightingales: The Walled City Trilogy (Book Three)
Anne Opotowsky (w) -  Amber Ma (a & c)
Emmy Award-winning writer Anne Opotowsky and stunning artist Amber Ma present the final volume in the massive saga of ambition, loyalty, and the walls we build inside and out; animating an irresistible historical setting with powerful modern resonance.
Watch in the last volume of the trilogy how one entangles the other. The gems float down from the Mekong, gathering dragon fire, ancient qi and vengeful powers along the way. 
One game is deceptively simple. Go–the Chinese board game that has captivated centuries of Asian players, ensnares two more. The other game has no rules. But the same ring sits at this center. It sets off a cascade, binding fragile bridges that link the Walled City.

Ragnarök, Vol. 3: The Breaking of Helheim—Cool
Walter Simonson (w & a & c)
In the end, the gods gathered together and met their foes on the Battle Plain of Vigrid. There, so the stories say, the gods and their Great Enemies slaughtered each other, the stars fell from the sky, Midgard itself sank into the all-encompassing ocean, and the Nine Worlds were destroyed.
But not all the old stories are true. Thor survived as did most of the Enemies while the gods went down to defeat and the Nine Worlds became one vast land of desolation. Now, in his search for revenge, the last god standing hears the voice of one long dead and it sets him on a new course.
Walter Simonson, legendary creator of Star Slammers, Manhunter and the Alien film adaptation (with Archie Goodwin), and the definitive version (after Stan and Jack) of Marvel's Thor, presents the next thrilling chapter of his own post-Ragnarök Thor saga!

Redbone: The True Story of a Native American Rock Band—Cool
Christian Staebler, Sonia Paoloni (w) -  Thibault Balahy (a & c)
Experience the riveting, powerful story of the Native American civil rights movement and the resulting struggle for identity told through the high-flying career of west coast rock n' roll pioneers, Redbone.
You've heard the hit song “Come and Get Your Love” in the movie Guardians of the Galaxy, but the story of the band behind it is one of cultural, political, and social importance.
Brothers Pat and Lolly Vegas were talented Native American rock musicians that took the 1960s Sunset Strip by storm. They influenced The Doors and jammed with Jimmy Hendrix before he was “Jimi,” and the idea of a band made up of completely Native Americans soon followed.
Determined to control their creative vision and maintain their cultural identity, they eventually signed a deal with Epic Records in 1969. But as the American Indian Movement gained momentum the band took a stand, choosing pride in their ancestry over continued commercial reward.
Created with the cooperation of the Vegas family, painstaking steps were taken to ensure the historical accuracy of this important and often overlooked story of America's past. Part biography and part research journalism, Redbone provides a voice to a people long neglected in American history.
