When the Wind Blows

Review by Future Man
Often not thought of as a comic artist, Briggs' books are usually sold as children's stories, but in this case that couldn't be much farther from the truth. Briggs is a master and I have yet to find one of his books which I haven't absolutely loved. This one details the story of an elderly couple preparing for nuclear fallout.

The Hollow Grounds

Review by Future Man
A collection of French science fiction short stories from a well known French author. The story and artwork are both stunning.

The Arrival

Review by Future Man
Completely wordless, absolutely amazing story about being an immigrant relocating to a new world wildly unlike anything you've ever seen before.

The Compleat Moonshadow

Review by Future Man
Totally original, totally hilarious, totally dark and fascinating fantasy story told in beautiful painted pages.

A Child's Life and Other Stories

Review by Future Man
A child's story... not for children. Deals heavily with childhood sexual abuse and drug abuse.

Hey, Wait...

Review by Future Man
It's amazing and completely entrancing from the beginning, but by the end of the first half, everything changes and it goes off in a completely different direction. Interestingly somber and emotionless art that conveys so much emotional depth in its tone. While this is my favorite Jason story, it is very different from most of his other work.

Cerebus Vol. 5: Jaka\'s Story

Review by Future Man
This chapter of the Cerebus story can stand alone and doesn't need to be read along any of the other stories, however the entire series gets my highest recomendation. This series still holds the title for the longest running, independently produced comic series.

Kramers Ergot Vol. 7

Review by Future Man
Probably the coolest comic I've ever seen. Perfect document of today's comic avant-guard. Pretty much every page is done by a different artist. It also continues the Building Cities story that started in Acme Novelty Library #16, which is a personal favorite story of mine.

Acme Novelty Library Vol. 16: Rusty Brown

Review by Future Man

Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability

Review by David Zhang
David Holmgren does a wonderful job tackling the problems of Peak Oil and Climate Change from the perspective of Permaculture. He gives solid explanation for the basic principles and applies them to sustainable food production and community development. A little dry at parts, but a well-written and informative book!

A Language Older Than Words

one of the best books written by Jensen. He describes the prevalence of violence in late-stage capitalist industrial society and the loss of communication between humans and other life forms.
