Misery Loves Comedy by Ivan Brunetti


Original Title: Misery Loves Comedy

A psychiatric case study masquerading a fancy-pants graphic novel, Misery Loves Comedy collects Ivan Brunetti's early issues (no pun intended) wait, let's rephrase that. Misery Loves Comedy collects the first three issues of the legendary comic book series Schizo in their entirety, as well as a host of miscellaneous flotsam and jetsam from various anthologies, c. 1992-2005. Readers will find the author's unwitting self-caricature as a paranoid, deluded young man intriguingly repugnant and often chuckle-inducing. Besides Brunetti's trademark nihilism, self-loathing, relentless depression, and inchoate, spittle-soaked misanthropy, these earlier comics offer a dollop of scatology and blasphemy for that extra puerile, lowbrow tang. These are comics for those who enjoy witnessing one man's sanity in its final death rattle, swinging its tail from anhedonia to schadenfreude and back again. Also: lots and lots of filthy jokes. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.9px Arial; color: #424242}

Unit 416 by J. Leon Pridgen, II


Original Title: Unit 416

Five tough as nails men. One hard-assed Sergeant. The only chance to change their lives. These are the men of Unit 416. Push them hard and they push harder. Things are about to get deadly—but with the skill and swagger of Unit 416, no mission is impossible... Born and raised in America’s hardest streets, five men are faced with the ultimate choice: continue their lives of crime and incarceration or serve their country and join the Army. Master Sergeant Keeble is faced with no good choice: be the leader of a new section called Unit 416 or take him and his surgically-repaired leg out of the game for good. At first, all Keeble has to work with is a ragtag group of men with no regard for the rules and a huge chip on their shoulders. But as the men go through training and more together, they form a group so tight, so formidable, that nothing can break them apart. And when a secretive CIA directive leads them straight into the heart of Uzbekistan to infiltrate an arms cartel, Unit 416’s men will need all the grit, tough—and heart—they have in order to see this mission home.

When Eagles Dare To Fly by James W. Hoddinott


Original Title: When Eagles Dare To Fly

When Eagles Dare to Fly is a story of hope. It foretells a bright future where the deep-rooted spiritual nature of mankind can overcome the past and lead us to a future of peace, love, and tranquility. This is a powerful story of Mitch and Raymond growing up in a society where men have lost purpose. Robbed of pride, men drink to forget their past and hopeless future; alcoholism and the destruction of their families result. Children are forced to endure physical and mental abuse of their mothers and families. The children realize the cycle must be broken. Joining together, they show their parents a better life. A seemingly insignificant death—a murder—galvanizes the youth to action. Reverting to the “old ways,” the spiritualism of their forefathers, they vow to return to the days when they were a proud, loving people. During their journey, they discover an amazing fact. That bigotry and racism are just barriers erected to hide the fact that mankind suffers from the same diseases.

Grey Area by Will Self


Original Title: Grey Area

Will Self, whom the Los Angeles Times calls “the hottest young novelist in England,” demonstrates his razor-sharp wit in these nine new stories. Self’s method depends upon taking an ordinary aspect of the world and then pushing it to its limit in furious absurdity. The short stories in Grey Area reflect the technical brilliance and satiric voice that have made him one of the most highly praised comic writers in a decade. These are stories that delve into the modern psyche with unsettling and darkly satiric results. “Inclusion®” tells the story of a doctor who is illegally testing a new antidepressant made from bee excrement. “A Short History of the English Novel” brings us face to face with a pompous publisher who is greeted at every turn by countless rejected authors. In “The End of the Relationship” a woman who has been left by her boyfriend provokes—“like some emotional Typhoid Mary”—that same reaction among all the couples she goes to for comfort. The narrator of “Between the Conceits” declares without hesitation that London is controlled by only eight individuals, and, thankfully, he is one of them. Self’s world in these pieces is both curiously familiar and hauntingly strange. Published to critical acclaim in England, Grey Area is a dazzling collection by one of the most talented and original writers of his generation.
