Complete Chester Gould's Dick Tracy Volume 23

Complete Chester Gould's Dick Tracy Volume 23 Lowest new price: $30.92
List price: $44.99
Author: Chester Gould

The iconic square-jawed detective's adventures fighting a menagerie of grotesque villains remain a highlight both of comics history and of crime fiction as a whole. The series is ripe for introduction to crime prose readers who haven't previously ventured into comics.
Tracy is on the trail of the aptly-named Mr. Bribery and his equally grotesque sister, Ugly Christine, in a story that also features a substance-abusing witch doctor and a shelf of shrunken heads. Meanwhile, newlyweds Junior and Moon Maid enter the story, and Dick Tracy’s troubles are compounded when he comes face to face with master criminal Haf-and-Haf, one side of whose face is hideously disfigured. Included are all strips from December 27, 1965 to July 2, 1967.

Tourist Season

Tourist Season Lowest new price: $10.40
Lowest used price: $5.54
List price: $16.00
Author: Carl Hiaasen
Brand: Ingramcontent

Take a trip to exotic South Florida with this “dark, funny book”* that established Carl Hiaasen as one of the top mystery writers in the game.

The first sign of trouble is a Shriner's fez washed up on a Miami beach. The next is a suitcase containing the almost-legless body of the local chamber of commerce president found floating in a canal. . . .

The locals are desperate to keep the murders under wraps and the tourist money flowing. But it will take a reporter-turned–private eye to make sense of a caper that mixes football players, politicians, and one very hungry crocodile in this classic mystery that GQ called “one of the top ten destination reads of all time.”

“Hiaasen keeps the suspense pumping along.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“Kept me riveted to the end.”—Chicago Tribune

Complete Little Orphan Annie Volume 14

Complete Little Orphan Annie Volume 14 Lowest new price: $30.54
Lowest used price: $30.59
List price: $49.99
Author: Harold Gray

A chronological reprinting of one of the most important comic strips of the 20th Century. Annie is a cultural icon--in both her red-headed, blank-eyed appearance, and as an embodiment of American individuality, spunk, and self-reliance. Even those who don't know strip are keenly aware of the plucky orphan, her loveable dog Sandy, and her adoptive benefactor, "Daddy" Warbucks, through the Broadway play, the hit movie, and the song "Tomorrow," made famous by both.

What would you do if you found $100 million in currency, gold bullion, and sparkling gems? Annie has this enviable problem as the 1940s come to a close in Harold Gray’s epic Little Orphan Annie. America’s spunkiest kid, however, fails to heed the advice of the mysterious “witch” named Gypsy Belle, who warns of trouble and danger associated with the treasure. Soon enough, the wayward waif is evading mobsters, murderers, and…government tax collectors! Gray also dramatically responds to the anti-comic-book hysteria in this pre-Seduction of the Innocent era, as Annie and other children try to prevent the adults from burning down the library! And that’s just ONE of the four stories in the book. “Sunshine and Shadow” reprints all daily and color Sunday strips from August 19, 1948 through March 12, 1950.

Author: J D DuPuy
Brand: J D Dupuy

The perfect gift for the lawyers in your life -- for law school graduation, birthdays, firm holiday gifts, retirement, or just because. More than 70 vignettes from life in the practice of law are rendered here as wryly humorous poems. Each one stands alone as the sort of snapshot one lawyer might forward along to another for a laugh or a knowing nod. Together, they comprise a collection to be treasured by anyone who has lived through law school, first jobs, thrilling victories, eye-opening disappointments, and the lifestyle particular to this career choice. This book is not about laughing at lawyers. It’s about laughing with them. It’s for everyone who’s in on the joke: Everyone who has witnessed the madness and met the quirky characters in this field. Everyone who, even just for a second, has wondered if they should have gone to medical school, culinary school... anything other than law school. Everyone who has ever sat down at the end of an evening and thought, “No one would even believe me if I told them about my day." We believe you. Editorial reviews: "In many of the poems, the authors capture perfectly the oddities of law practice and law school. ‘Sisterhood’ may be one of the most insightful poems that could be enjoyed within any profession. These poems… took the mundane and made it soar.” — Arizona Bar Association “A book of candid truths and palpable honesty, with a sincerity that can only come from experience.” –   North Carolina Bar Association “A must-read for lawyers persisting in long-term practice who like to keep it light, who continue to muse on the sometimes bizarre world in which a lawyer finds himself or herself, and who simply enjoy a good poem.” – Colorado Bar Association Featured on Above the Law and Bitter Lawyer. Named the SmallLaw Pick of the Week by TechnoLawyer. (Authors donate a portion of book proceeds to WomensLaw.org, The WomensLaw Project of the National Network to End Domestic Violence.)

Complete Chester Gould's Dick Tracy Volume 24 Lowest new price: $43.27
List price: $44.99
Author: Chester Gould

The iconic square-jawed detective's adventures fighting a menagerie of grotesque villains remain a highlight in the history of comics and of crime fiction in general. This series is ripe to introduce to crime prose readers who haven't previously ventured into comics.

Chester Gould's morality play enters the late '60s, as the cartoonist tackles concepts of retribution, constitutional rights, economic warfare, and Space Age intrigue--all amidst the usual array of murder and violence. The stakes, however, seem higher, and the body count soars: death in space, on the high seas, behind closed doors--by gun, by laser, by asphyxiation, by explosion, and by freezing. The action moves from Earth to the lunar surface as Moon Maid zaps bad guys, Lizz goes undercover, Tracy nearly loses his head--and, when Diet Smith sets up a factory on the moon, will mankind also export greed and murder to its crime-free orbiting satellite? Bad guys include steely mobster Piggy Butcher, Chin Chillar, underworld boss Mr. Intro, and the bootlegger named Posie, among others. Plus the return of Sparkle Plenty and a special feature about the aborted 1967 Dick Tracy TV show from the same producer who made Batman a pop culture icon. Included are all strips from July 3, 1967 to April 2, 1969.

Complete Chester Gould's Dick Tracy Volume 21 Lowest new price: $28.97
Lowest used price: $27.32
List price: $44.99
Author: Chester Gould
Brand: Gould Chester

Dick Tracy leaps into the Space Age when Diet Smith’s experimental Space Coupe brings back a visitor from outer space! Meet…Moon Maid, the most outrageous character in the strip’s entire history. Prior to venturing where no detective has gone before, Tracy deals with some very earthbound—and gruesomely entertaining—adventures, including the use of napalm (!) to flush out a gang of crooks from their hideout. In these strips from August 27, 1962 through April 12, 1964 Tracy mixes it up with the criminal 52 Gang—each named for a card in the poker deck—who have found a novel way to dispose of the corpses of their enemies, Junior is smitten by a girl who literally wants him dead, Sparkle Plenty falls into the hands of crazed modern artists and their ape accomplice, and (six months before it happened in the "real world") a doctor has perfected heart transplant surgery—but in this case it’s on unwilling victims!
