Final word: A killer spy thriller."-- Dan Lennard, People Magazine "Hands down, my favorite book of all 2007."-- James Sime, proprietor of Isotope: The Comic Lounge "Every now and then I get something really super special from someone with so much talent....I can't describe accurately how handsome this book he's created is. You have to pick it up and hold it in your hands to see for yourself. So go get it and be amazed."-- Paul Malmont, author of The Chinatown Deathcloud Peril "Super Spy is extraordinary, balancing its challenging, fractured narrative with a plot that grabs both the half of the heart that wants action and the half of the heart that wants people to love each other despite their loneliness."-- Teacher Librarian The critically-acclaimed spy thriller about cyanide, pen-guns, heartbreak and betrayal is back! Spanning the countries of Spain, France, and German during World War II, the graphic novel follows the intersecting life of six spies, exploring their small lies and deceptions, as well as the larger secrets they hide.

Beautiful Fighting Girl Sait Tamaki 2013-11-30 From Cutie Honey and Sailor Moon to Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, the worlds of Japanese anime and manga teem with prepubescent girls toting deadly weapons. Sometimes overtly sexual, always intensely cute, the beautiful fighting girl has been both hailed as a feminist icon and condemned as a symptom of the objectification of young women in Japanese society. In Beautiful Fighting Girl, Saitō Tamaki offers a far more sophisticated and convincing interpretation of this alluring and capable figure. For Saitō, the beautiful fighting girl is a complex sexual fantasy that paradoxically lends reality to the fictional spaces she inhabits. As an object of desire for male otaku (obsessive fans of anime and manga), she saturates these worlds with meaning even as her fictional status demands her ceaseless proliferation and reproduction. Rejecting simplistic moralizing, Saitō understands the otaku’s ability to eroticize and even fall in love with the beautiful fighting girl not as a sign of immaturity or maladaptation but as a result of a heightened sensitivity to the multiple layers of mediation and fictional context that constitute life in our hypermediated world—a logical outcome of the media they consume. Featuring extensive interviews with Japanese and American otaku, a comprehensive genealogy of the beautiful fighting girl, and an analysis of the American outsider artist Henry Darger, whose baroque imagination Saitō sees as an important antecedent of otaku culture, Beautiful Fighting Girl was hugely influential when first published in Japan, and it remains a key text in the study of manga, anime, and otaku culture. Now available in English for the first time, this book will spark new debates about the role played by desire in the production and consumption of popular culture.
