Unavailable.

Now we’re just friends.

Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again (Batman Dark Knight)

It’s been three years since the events of The Dark Knight Returns, and everything is just fine. At least on the surface. What the world at large doesn’t know is that it’s a total sham. A perfectly choreographed, pretty little world where everything that’s ugly, or even potentially disturbing, is all nicely wrapped up with neat little ribbons and swept under the carpet. Only he knows better. He’s watched it fester to near-breaking point, and it’s time for the only free man left who can effect any real change to bring it all down around their ears once and for all.

You Can't Keep a Good Woman Down: Stories

This collection builds on Alice Walker’s earlier work, the much-praised In Love & Trouble. But unlike her first collection of stories, the women in these tenderly wrought tales face their problems head on, proving powerful and self-possessed even when degraded by others—sometimes by those closest to them. But even as the female protagonists face exploitation, social asymmetries, and casual cruelties, Walker leavens her stories with ample wit and, as always, an eye for the redemptive power of love.
