THE BIG BOOK OF GRIMM
THE BIG BOOK OF GRIMM retells the fantastical fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm with all of their original horror and intensity. Presented as graphically violent parables, these infamous folk tales contain moral lessons that fluctuate from the obvious to the obscure. But told through the medium of comic book storytelling, these literary classics employ their often fatal, gruesome, authentic conclusions such as the horrific death of Cinderella's stepsisters by pecking birds.
THE BIG BOOK OF THE '70S
THE BIG BOOK OF THE 70'S is a comprehensive and educational journey back to the most tumultuous and tacky decade of modern history. Using comic strips to revisit the "Me" Era, this entertaining cultural history text looks at the origins and emergence of such oddities as the pet rock, bell bottoms, mood rings, disco, streaking, and running. But at the same time deeper issues like Vietnam, the women's movement, terrorism, and the gasoline shortage are also treated with the respect that they deserve.
