Full of intelligent humour and deep insights, this book will engage and enlighten as it offers new perspectives on religion, militarism and the contradictions between human desires and actions. By drawing a connection between our unexamined fear of death and our unnecessary pursuit of war, Moats challenges readers to question whether humans are really violent warmongers by nature, or do we yearn to protect life? David J Moats' haunting and powerful illustrations will leave the issues burning in your mind. The book is introduced with a foreword by Howard Zinn, the renowned historian, activist, playwright and author of A People's History of the United States.
At once unsettling and comforting, tragic and comic, provocative and wise, The Letter from Death is an insightful examination of humanity that will give thoughtful readers a lot to think about.

A graphic novel of war and its aftermath.

The highly anticipated new standalone full-color graphic novel from Bryan Lee O’Malley, author and artist of the hugely bestselling Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series
Katie’s got it pretty good. She’s a talented young chef, she runs a successful restaurant, and she has big plans to open an even better one. Then, all at once, progress on the new location bogs down, her charming ex-boyfriend pops up, her fling with another chef goes sour, and her best waitress gets badly hurt. And just like that, Katie’s life goes from pretty good to not so much. What she needs is a second chance. Everybody deserves one, after all—but they don’t come easy. Luckily for Katie, a mysterious girl appears in the middle of the night with simple instructions for a do-it-yourself do-over:
1. Write your mistake
2. Ingest one mushroom
3. Go to sleep
4. Wake anew
And just like that, all the bad stuff never happened, and Katie is given another chance to get things right. She’s also got a dresser drawer full of magical mushrooms—and an irresistible urge to make her life not just good, but perfect. Too bad it’s against the rules. But Katie doesn’t care about the rules—and she’s about to discover the unintended consequences of the best intentions.
From the mind and pen behind the acclaimed Scott Pilgrim series comes a madcap new tale of existential angst, everyday obstacles, young love, and ancient spirits that’s sharp-witted and tenderhearted, whimsical and wise.
