Animal Lover

Kamisama kiss. Vol. 3 by Julietta Suzuki

Nanami, missing school because she is distracted by her duties as a local deity, finds everything going wrong in class and is bit on the wrist while following her instinct to save animals.

Just in time for the highly anticipated 2016 blockbuster film release, this collection is the definitive and explosive introduction to John Ostrander's modern SUICIDE SQUAD. It's up to the government to keep the bad guys in captivity-but Amanda Waller, a tough-as-nails federal agent, has other plans. She's heading up Task Force X (aka, the Suicide Squad) as an ultimatum to the world's most notorious super-villains. These criminals chew on a tricky bargain: either accept her devious, nearly impossible missions in the name of democracy, or rot in jail. And one other thing: most operatives don't make it back alive! Starring some of the most popular villains in the DCU forced into the role of unlikely antiheroes, SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 1: TRIAL BY FIRE collects SUICIDE SQUAD #1-8 and SECRET ORIGINS #14.

A New York Times Bestseller! As a part of the acclaimed DC Comics--The New 52 event of September 2011, writer and co-creator of the CW show Supernatural Adam Glass rolls out an all-new team of death-row super villains recruited by the government to take on missions so dangerous-they're sheer suicide! The story begins with the Suicide Squad defeated, imprisoned and being interrogated about their newest mission. Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot and company must make it out alive without revealing who's pulling the strings behind their illegal operations. Who will be the first to crack under the pressure? More importantly will they make it all out alive?

"Fresh from BATMAN: DEATH OF THE FAMILY and SUICIDE SQUAD, Harley Quinn returns to her first solo series in the New 52! The writing team of Jimmy Palmiotti (ALL STAR WESTERN) and Amanda Conner (BEFORE WATCHMEN: SILK SPECTRE) unleashed Harley on an unsuspecting DC Universe, as she encounters various heroes and villains ... and leaves no one unscathed in her wake! With art by Chad Hardin and a slew of comics' best artists including Darwyn Cooke, Sam Kieth, Tony S. Daniel, Paul Pope, Walter Simonson and Art Baltazar! Collects HARLEY QUINN #0-8"--.

Tarzan of the apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs

Raised by a fierce she-ape of the tribe of Kerchak deep in the African jungle, the baby Tarzan grew to learn the secrets of the wild to survive--how to talk with animals, swing through trees, and fight against the great predators. He grew to the strength and courage of his fellow apes. And in time, his human intelligence promised him the kingship of the tribe. He became truly Lord of the Jungle. Then civilized men entered the jungle, and Tarzan was forced to choose between two worlds.... 

In 1947, artist Jesse Marsh left Walt Disney Studios-where he had worked on Pinocchio, Fantasia, and various animated shorts to work for Western Publishing full time. Tarzan was one of his first assignments, with the iconic character's first original comic-book appearance in Dell Four-Color Comics #134. Tarzan #2 would begin Marsh's long-term collaboration with writer Gaylord DuBois. Their terrific work drew admiration and respect from readers and peers Russ Manning among them and Marsh's art inspired future comics! 

This second volume reproduces six big Golden Age issues for readers new and old to enjoy, and all stories are by the dynamite team of Gaylord DuBois and Jesse Marsh. DuBois and Marsh's nineteen-year collaboration on Tarzan produced a legendary body of work and an enduring vision of one of the world's foremost adventure icons. Marsh's art enthralled an entire generation of comics readers, influencing future creators the Hernandez brothers and earning the acclaim of such fellow professionals as Russ Manning and Alex Toth! 

These books feature GLBTQIA characters and are for adult readers. 

Adam by Ariel Schrag

"When Adam Freedman--a skinny, immature, and lackluster high school student from Piedmont, California--is sent by his parents to join his older sister Casey in New York City, he is hopeful that his life is about to change. And it sure does. It is the Summer of 2006--the year of gay marriage demonstrations and the rise of transgender rights--and Casey has thrust herself into New York's fringe lesbian, sexual, and political scene. Accustomed to being a social misfit, Adam now finds himself part of a wild subculture complete with underground clubs, drinking, and friendly women who take a surprisingly intense interest in him. It takes some time for him to realize many in this new crowd assume he is transgendered--a boy who was born a girl--or else why would he always be around? But then he meets Gillian, the girl of his dreams. If only she weren't a lesbian! And if only she didn't believe he was really (sort of) a girl. Ariel Schrag's scathingly funny and poignant debut novel puts a fresh spin on questions of love, attraction, self-definition, and what it takes to be at home in your own skin"--.

The paying guests by Sarah Waters

It is 1922, and London is tense. Ex-servicemen are disillusioned, the out-of-work and the hungry are demanding change. And in South London, in a genteel Camberwell villa, a large silent house now bereft of brothers, husband and even servants, life is about to be transformed, as impoverished widow Mrs Wray and her spinster daughter, Frances, are obliged to take in lodgers.
