THE COMPLETE LEATHERSTOCKING TALES features the five novels of James Fenimore Cooper's beloved Leatherstocking series, which follow the adventures of Natty Bumppo. Set largely on the frontier of New York during the 18th century, Bumppo, who is known as "Leatherstocking" to the European settlers and "Deerslayer" or "Hawkeye" to the Native Americans, is an Anglo-American raised in part by Delaware Indians.

The first graphic novel adaptation of the work of master storyteller Louis L鈥橝mour is a dynamic tale of the Old West that explores the borderlands of loyalty and betrayal with the emotional grittiness of a noir thriller.<br /> 聽<br /> New Mexico, 1887, a land in the midst of the worst drought anyone can remember. Family histories and loyalties run deep, but when rancher Tom Forrester has his access to the Pecos River cut off by the son of his old partner, he convinces his foreman, Shad Marone, to pay Jud Bowman back for the discourtesy. Yet what starts as a simple act of petty revenge quickly spirals into a cycle of violence that no one can control.<br /> 聽<br /> Now Marone is on the run, pursued by a sheriff鈥檚 posse across a rugged desert landscape. Leading the chase is Jesus Lopez, a half-Mexican, half-Apache with a personal stake in bringing Shad to justice. Newly released from jail, trusted by no one, Lopez swears he鈥檚 the only man who can track Marone down. That may be true. But who will live and who will die and what price will be paid in suffering are open questions. Fate and the Jornada del Muerto desert possess a harsh justice that is all their own.<br /> 聽<br /> With a propulsive script from Beau L鈥橝mour and Kathy Nolan, adapted by Charles Santino and illustrated in bold black-and-white by Thomas Yeates, <i>Law of the Desert Born</i> captures the dust and blood of Louis L鈥橝mour鈥檚 West鈥攁 world where the difference between a hero and a villain can be as wide as the gap between an act of kindness or brutality or as narrow as a misspoken word.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Law of the Desert Born</i></b><br /> 聽<br /> 鈥淭his actually may be the story鈥檚 ideal form, since the author鈥檚 son Beau came to realize that the core of the tale was the tense relationship between [Marone] and Lopez. . . . The graphic novel version provides room to develop this theme. Yeates鈥檚 black-and-white depiction of the rugged landscape and the hard-bitten characters is superb. The result is stunning and richly textured.鈥?lt;b>鈥?lt;i>Publishers Weekly<br /></i></b><br />鈥淸An] interesting tale of range rivalries turned bloody . . .

<p><strong><em>New York Times</em> Bestseller</strong></p><br /><p><strong>Whether you are looking to brush up or sample for the first time, this graphic adaptation of <em>In Search of Lost Time</em> is the perfect introduction to Proust's masterpiece.</strong></p><br /><p>"Proust was the greatest novelist of the twentieth century, just as Tolstoy was in the nineteenth," wrote Graham Greene. "For those who began to write at the end of the twenties or the beginning of the thirties, there were two great inescapable influences: Proust and Freud, who are mutually complementary." With its sweeping digressions into the past and reflections on the nature of memory, Proust's oceanic novel <em>In Search of Lost Time</em> looms over twentieth-century literature as one of the greatest, yet most endlessly challenging literary experiences. Influencing writers like Virginia Woolf and James Joyce, and even anticipating Albert Einstein in its philosophical explorations of space and time, <em>In Search of Lost Time</em> is a monumental achievement and a virtual rite of passage for any serious lover of literature.</p><br /><p>Now, in what renowned translator Arthur Goldhammer says might be "likened to a piano reduction of an orchestral score," the French illustrator St茅phane Heuet re-presents Proust in graphic form for anyone who has always dreamed of reading him but was put off by the sheer magnitude of the undertaking. This graphic adaptation reveals the fundamental architecture of Proust鈥檚 work while displaying a remarkable fidelity to his language as well as the novel's themes of time, art, and the elusiveness of memory. As Goldhammer writes in his introduction, the compression required by this kind of adaptation As Goldhammer writes in his introduction, "the reader new to Proust must attend closely, even in this compressed rendering, to the novel's circling rhythms and abrupt cross-cuts between different places and times. But this necessary attentiveness is abetted and facilitated by the compactness of the graphic format.鈥?lt;/p><br /><p>In this first volume, <em>Swann's Way</em>, the narrator Marcel, an aspiring writer, recalls his childhood when鈥攊n a now immortal moment in literature鈥攖he taste of a madeleine cake dipped in tea unleashes a torrent of memories about his family鈥檚 country home in the town of Combray. Here, Heuet and Goldhammer use Proust's own famously rich and labyrinthine sentences and discerning observations to render Combray like never before. From the water lillies of the Vivonne to the steeple and stained glass of the town church, Proust's language provides the blueprint for Heuet's illustrations. Heuet and Goldhammer also capture Proust's humor, wit, and sometimes scathing portrayals of Combray's many memorable inhabitants, like the lovelorn Charles Swann and the object of his affection and torment, Odette de Cr茅cy; Swann's daughter Gilberte; local aristocrat the Duchesse de Guermantes; the narrator's uncle Adolphe; and the hypochondriac Aunt L茅onie.</p><br /><p>Including a Proust family tree, a glossary of terms, and a map of Paris, this graphic adaptation is a surprising and useful companion piece to Proust鈥檚 masterpiece for both the initiated and those seeking an introduction.</p>

After the heavily cartoon- and slapstick cinema-inspired first<br /> adventures, Morris turned towards the tradition of Westerns to flesh<br /> out his hero鈥檚 world. In Under a Western Sky, Lucky Luke versus Pat<br /> Poker and Outlaws there is a lot of Hollywood and John Ford, and<br /> while Luke hasn鈥檛 quite settled into his current look, he鈥檚 certainly<br /> closer to the phlegmatic cowboy we know and love. Outlaws also marks<br /> the first appearance of the Daltons 鈥?the historical Dalton brothers<br /> here, who will later return as their decidedly stupider cousins.<br /> Throw in 48 pages of extra material on Morris鈥檚 experience in the<br /> United States, and this is a book you won鈥檛 want to miss.

Ce personnage immortel parcourt depuis 1947 (44 ans !) l'histoire de l'ouest am茅ricain. Il y a rencontr茅 des personnages c茅l貓bres (Jesse James, Calamity Jane, Billy the Kid, Sarah Bernhardt...). Lucky Luke est l'homme des missions impossibles, le d茅fenseur des pauvres, des veuves et des orphelins, bref le parfait h茅ros ! Son cheval, Jolly Jumper, est un parfait compagnon de ce poor lonesome cowboy. Les fr貓res Dalton se dressent perp茅tuellement sur le chemin de Lucky Luke ce qui permet 脿 ce dernier de les poursuivre continuellement et de les confier 脿 la justice. Autre personnage traditionnel de la s茅rie : Rantanplan, le chien le plus b錨te du farwest qui a v茅cut de fa莽on autonome 2 albums. Lucky Luke est, avec Ast茅rix et Tintin, le plus c茅l貓bre personnage de l'histoire de la BD : cette s茅rie, accessible 脿 tous, est devenu un mythe gr芒ce 脿 Morris et Goscinny. Ce personnage a fait l'essentiel de sa formidable carri貓re dans les pages de SPIROU, PILOTE et LE JOURNAL DE LUCKY LUKE. Une exploitation merchandising et audiovisuelle (dont aux 脡tats-Unis) a permis d'introduire Lucky Luke aupr貓s d'une tr貓s large couche de la population et aupr貓s de plusieurs g茅n茅rations de lecteurs. A noter qu'apr貓s la disparition de Goscinny, plusieurs sc茅naristes ont travaill茅 sur la s茅rie : Vicq, De Groot, Fauche et L茅turgie, Lodewijk, Lo Hartog Van Banda et Vidal. L'essentiel des albums se trouvent chez Dupuis et Dargaud., la nouveaut茅 chez Lucky Productions.
