“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.” —J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan
Join Peter, Wendy, Tinker Bell, and a cast of other familiar characters on a fantastical journey in the Word Cloud Classics’ Peter Pan. Included in this volume are the famous novel—Peter and Wendy (1911)—about the “boy who never grew up” and his adventures in Neverland, as well as a lesser-known prequel entitled Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens (1906), which tells the story of Pan’s early years in London. This lively volume weaves a tale that is universally relatable and wildly popular for adults and children alike.
Tomas Piety has been many things: soldier, priest, gangster...and spy. As Tomas's power grows, the nobility better watch their backs, in this dark and gritty epic fantasy series.
People are weak, and the poorer and more oppressed they are, the weaker they become--until they can't take it anymore. And when they rise up...may the gods help their oppressors.
When Tomas Piety returned from the war, he just wanted to rebuild his empire of crime with his gang of Pious Men. But his past as a spy for the Queen's Men drew him back in and brought him more power than he ever imagined.
Now, with half of his city in ashes and the Queen's Men at his back, the webs of political intrigue stretch out from the capital to pull Tomas in. Dannsburg is calling.
In Dannsburg the nobility fight with words, not blades, but the results are every bit as bloody. In this pit of beasts, Tomas must decide once and for all whether he is truly the people's champion...or just a priest of lies.
"The first in an unmissable series, Priest of Bones is a fresh and compelling take on grimdark fantasy. Mashing together soldiers, gangsters, magic and war into a heady mix that is a hulking big brother to The Lies of Locke Lamora."--Anna Stephens, author of Godblind
The war is over, and army priest Tomas Piety heads home with Sergeant Bloody Anne at his side. But things have changed while he was away: his crime empire has been stolen and the people of Ellinburg--his people--have run out of food and hope and places to hide. Tomas sets out to reclaim what was his with help from Anne, his brother, Jochan, and his new gang: the Pious Men. But when he finds himself dragged into a web of political intrigue once again, everything gets more complicated.
As the Pious Men fight shadowy foreign infiltrators in the back-street taverns, brothels, and gambling dens of Tomas's old life, it becomes clear:
The war is only just beginning.
Re-experience the beginning of Peter David's iconic run on Aquaman, which shaped the life of Atlantis' most famous citizen for years to come, in AQUAMAN BY PETER DAVID BOOK ONE.
Here begins Arthur Curry's recollection of the epic journey that led him to become the mythical superhero we know as Aquaman. Since his dramatic debut in the 1940s, Aquaman has gone from admired hero to legendary icon. Able to breathe in both air and water, the King of the Seven Seas has fought villainy from the deepest depths of the oceans to the outer limits of the galaxy. He is unquestionably one of the greatest heroes the world has ever seen, but his rise to power was not easy.
Collects AQUAMAN: TIME AND TIDE #1-4 and AQUAMAN #0-8, as well as a new introduction by Peter David.
Acclaimed writers Gene Luen Yang (Boxers & Saints), Greg Pak (BATMAN/SUPERMAN), Aaron Kuder (SUPERBOY) and Peter J. Tomasi (BATMAN & ROBIN), joined by a who’s who of artists including Howard Porter (JUSTICE LEAGUE #3001), Ardian Syaf (BATMAN/SUPERMAN) and Doug Mahnke (GREEN LANTERN), bring one of DC’s mightiest—and oldest—villains to the forefront and signal the final days of Krypton’s last son.
Vandal Savage can afford to be patient—he’s immortal, thanks to fragments from a comet he came into contact with more than 40,000 years ago…a comet that he has since spent eons and spilled blood trying to bring back to Earth. A comet that, should he reclaim it, will grant him untold might.
Savage’s patience is about to pay off. Through his operatives, he’s taken Superman’s powers—and, indirectly, his secret identity—to siphon the collective strength of the Justice League and generate the ultimate tractor beam. As the beam draws Savage’s long-lost comet all the way back to Earth, unsuspecting souls bearing the immortal’s genetic signature are suddenly infused with maddening might, while their “father’s” already-incredible power exponentially increases.
Only a handful of heroes, led by Wonder Woman and a depowered Superman, stand between Savage and his comet, and soon even they won’t be enough—that is, unless Superman taps into a deadly element from his past to deny his immortal adversary a future of eternal power.
Collects SUPERMAN ANNUAL #3, ACTION COMICS #48-50, SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #25-27 and SUPERMAN #48-50.
