GOD IS DISAPPOINTED IN YOU

God Is Disappointed in You is for people who would like to read the Bible... if it would just cut to the chase. Stripped of its arcane language and its interminable passages of poetry, genealogy, and law, every book of the Bible is condensed down to its core message, in no more than a few pages each. Written by Mark Russell with cartoons by New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, God Is Disappointed in You is a frequently hilarious, often shocking, but always accurate retelling of the Bible, including the parts selectively left out by Sunday School teachers and church sermons. Irreverent yet faithful, this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to see past the fog of religious agendas and cultural debates to discover what the Bible really says.

KEY SELLING POINTS: Great fun for fans of George Carlin and Bill Maher but also religious readers ready for a laugh, or anyone curious about the entertainment potential lurking inside the world's most popular book. A deluxe Bible-esque textured hardcover, with rounded corners, gilded edges, foil-stamped cover, and cloth bookmark, printed in black & red ink. Shannon Wheeler's gag cartoons won the Eisner Award at last year's Comic-Con, while his "Postage Stamp Funnies" ran in the print edition of The Onion, and his "Too Much Coffee Man" character has appeared internationally in comics, newspapers, magazines, graphic novels, and even an opera! Since 2009 he has contributed cartoons to the New Yorker.

A MATTER OF LIFE

• After the acclaimed indie film Save the Date and the bestselling all-ages humor book Darth Vader and Son, graphic novelist Jeffrey Brown (Clumsy, Unlikely) returns to the autobiographical work that first made his reputation. In A Matter of Life, Jeffrey Brown draws upon memories of three generations of Brown men: himself, his minister father, and his preschooler son Oscar.

KEY SELLING POINTS: • A Matter of Life is Jeffrey Brown's first hardcover graphic novel for adults, addressing relationships with his son and his father never before explored in his prolific career.

• Is it possible to find love after you've died and gone to Hell? For oddball misfits Velvet and Brinkley, the answer just might be yes. After Velvet hangs herself and winds up trapped in a bedroom she believes is Hell, she comes in contact with Brinkley, the man trapped next door. Through mirrors that hang in each of their rooms, these disturbed cinemaphiles watch the past of the other unfold — the dark past that has led to their present circumstances.

• More Americans were killed during the years 1861-1865 than any other date in history. Men shattered, women lost, families broken. In Shades of Blue and Gray, editor Steve Berman offers readers tales of the supernatural — ghost stories that range from the haunts of the battlefield to revenants on the long march home. Yank. Rebel. Both finding themselves at odds in flesh and spirit.


• The adventurers, now Mythic heroes invested with righteous power, are poised to become the greatest heroes of the war effort against the demons — provided they can survive (and succeed at) their first mission. The citadel and city of Drezen was once the pride and joy of the crusaders, a symbol of their triumph in the First Crusade against the Worldwound. Yet this triumph was short-lived, for when a larger horde of demons attacked, they shattered Drezen's defenses and captured the citadel and the Crusaders' symbol of power — the Sword of Valor. Can the adventurers and an allied team of specialists lead an army north to reclaim Drezen and recover the Sword of Valor, or are they marching their friends and followers into certain death? • Continuing the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path, Sword of Valor is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 6th-level characters who have gained one mythic tier.
