Book Summary: As the summer of 2004 draws to a close, Archy Stallings and Nat Jaffe are still hanging in there, long-time friends, bandmates and co-regents of Brokeland Records, a kingdom of used vinyl located in the sketchy yet freewheeling borderlands of Berkeley and Oakland. Archy and his wife, Gwen, are expecting their first baby; Nat and Aviva have a teenaged son, Julius. Cranky, flawed and loving each other with all the fierceness we’ve come to expect of Chabon characters, Archy and Nat have worked to construct lives and livelihoods that have a groove, looking to connect across barriers of race and class, and clinging to a sense of order and security through their stubbornly old-school ways. When ex-NFL quarterback Gibson Goode, the fourth-richest black man in America, announces plans to construct his latest Dogpile megastore on a nearby neglected stretch of Telegraph Avenue, Nat and Archy fear it means certain doom for their vulnerable little enterprise. What they don’t know is that Goode’s announcement marks the climax of a decades-old secret history encompassing a forgotten crime of the Black Panther era, the tragedy of Archy’s own deadbeat father—a long faded Blaxploitation star—and the perpetual shining failure of American optimism about race.

Book Summary: Titan Comics is proud to present Philippe Druillet’s Elric: The Return to Melniboné and James Cawthorn’s Stormbringer. Published together for the first time ever, this volume unites two of the greatest fantasy artists of all time, Philippe Druillet and James Cawthorn. Each of the two stories presented here were hailed as modern classics when first published in the early 1970s. In Druillet’s Return to Melniboné, Elric, armed with his sentient runeblade Stormbringer, returns to the Dragon isle of Melniboné and to his cousin and lover Cymoril. Unbeknown to Elric, dark forces are gathering and a sinister conspiracy to steal Stormbringer and bring chaos to Melniboné is being forged. James Cawthorn’s Stormbringer sees Elric’s wife, Zarozinia, kidnapped by servants of Chaos and ransomed for the runeblades, Mournblade and Stormbringer. Elric must enter the World of Chaos and confront Chardros the Reaper, Mabelode the Faceless, and Slotar the Old – the three most powerful Lords in the Realm of Chaos – and fight not just for the life of Zarozinia, but for all mankind.

Apprenant qu’une attaque de pirates sanguinaires se prépare, Elric saisit l’occasion pour tenter de restaurer son autorité.
