This past decade Death Note has established itself as a classic among Japanese comics. However, it didn’t find a home on my shelf until the release of this special edition. The sleek design fits perfectly with the tone of this dark, psychological masterwork. This is a great series for serious readers who would normally be turned off by "Manga." I recommend it to anyone looking for a change of pace and long nights spent in suspense. - Alli

This book slapped me in the face—who am I? Why do I participate in a consumer culture that disgusts me? How does anyone break free & live outside society? And how do those people who succeed at going off the grid keep their sanity? Tim Lane’s collection of graphic short stories, Abandoned Cars, is a brutal, gritty examination of the American Myth and what it’s become, as well as a portrait of a consummate outsider and how he lives—perfect for those of us who question our 9-to-5 existence. - Sarah B.
