How did The Simpsons, one of the most popular television shows in history go from being attacked by many religious leaders for its lack of family values to being called one of the most theologically relevant programs in prime time?
Kirja on jatkoa kevään 2006 arvostelumenestykselle Marian koodi. Kyseessä on kiitetyn tekijäparin uusi, huikea Anni Isotalo -seikkailu. Kirja on jännittävä, taidokkaasti piirretty ja nykyaikaan sijoittuva tarina, jonka näyttämönä ovat itärajan takainen Karjala sekä takautumina talvi- ja jatkosodan maisemat. Kirja on täynnä kihelmöiviä mysteereitä, salaseuroja ja odottamattomia käänteitä.
Se on sukua ranskalais-belgialaisten koulukuntien mestareille ja edustaa kotimaisen sarjakuvan kermaa. Kirja sopii niin aikuisille kuin perheen nuorimmillekin.
In 2010, David Mogolov began a series of three comedic monologues that left audiences questioning their life decisions small and large, from their flossing habits to their anger at Ponzi schemers. A hilarious, deep dive into the limits of human rationality, Mogolov's comedy also presents history's most thorough analysis of the smell of a Subway sandwich. In This Could Have Gone Worse, the trilogy of shows is annotated and expanded with commentary on how they were written and produced, with an honest account of what failed and what succeeded, and why. The notes and new chapters look at it from both the perspective of Mogolov and his director, Steve Kleinedler.
Anybody interested in the process of writing and performing comedy is likely to find the book an insightful and funny look into the process of creating small-stage comedy that wrangles with big-stage issues.
A birthright. It should be something no one can ever take away.
But that’s not how it works in the world of vampires. Especially when that birthright involves a unique type of blood necessary for an elitist vampire society to remain young and beautiful. Welcome to the continued misadventure of nineteen-year-old Txema Ybarra (pronounced Chema). The earth’s most privileged undead believe they deserve a stake in Txema’s blood, and there is power and prestige for whoever controls her ancient bloodline. However, the vampire demon, Ralu, and his burgeoning Chupacabra army crave the same lofty status.
Unlike his brother Gustav—ruler of the elite European vampires—Ralu desires the death of Txema, and with it the end of Gustav’s two thousand-year reign. As this teenage mother-to-be fights for survival for her and her unborn daughter, the journey to elude Ralu and traitor vampires among Gustav’s civilized allies takes Txema across the globe. The race is on to save or destroy two human lives…and determine the rightful holder of The Vampires’ Birthright.
