Hey, Charlie Brown, wohin geht die Reise heute?<br /><br />In neuesten Abenteuer der PEANUTS verschl盲gt es die Kinderbande um Snoopy, Charlie Brown und die anderen in die Hauptstadt Japans. Charlie und seine Baseball-Mannschaft sollen die USA bei einem internationalen Baseball-Spiel in Tokio repr盲sentieren. Charlie Brown ist nun wirklich kein Gl眉ckspilz, doch manchmal meint es das Leben dann doch gut mit ihm 鈥?oder ist alles nur ein Traum? Oder viel schlimmer noch: Ist alles kein Irrtum und Charlie steht als Teammanager die schlimmste Reise seines Lebens bevor? Das Match auf der anderen Seite des Pazifiks, dem alle entgegenfiebern, wird es zeigen!<br /><br />Die von Vicki Scott geschriebenen und skizzierten sowie von Paige Braddock gezeichneten neuen Abenteuer mit Charlie Borwn, Linus, Peppermint Patty und - nat眉rlich - Snoppy stellen die einzigen aktuell von "Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates" genehmigten Peanuts-Geschichten dar, die nicht vom Sch枚pfer selbst auf Papier gebracht wurden.

Pro-Wrestling's secrets and greatest moments are immortalized in this graphic novel from legendary wrestling personality Jim Cornette. A true-story style anthology, these insider tales will show the lengths that wrestlers went to uphold "kayfabe" (the old carny term for the presentation of legitimate conflict), as well as the noteworthy cultural, racial, and economic effects these events and characters had on society. This is the graphic novel that old school wrestling fans have been waiting their entire lives for: a no-holds-barred representation of the moments that wrestling insiders couldn't talk about for years.

Battling bad guys. High-tech hideouts. The gratitude of the masses. Who at some point in their life hasn't dreamed of being a superhero? Impossible, right? Or is it? Possessing no supernatural powers, Batman is the most realistic of all the superheroes. His feats are achieved through rigorous training and mental discipline, and with the aid of fantastic gadgets. Drawing on his training as a neuroscientist, kinesiologist, and martial artist, E. Paul Zehr explores the question: Could a mortal ever become Batman? Zehr discusses the physical training necessary to maintain bad-guy-fighting readiness while relating the science underlying this process, from strength conditioning to the cognitive changes a person would endure in undertaking such a regimen. In probing what a real-life Batman could achieve, Zehr considers the level of punishment a consummately fit and trained person could handle, how hard and fast such a person could punch and kick, and the number of adversaries that individual could dispatch. He also tells us what it would be like to fight while wearing a batsuit and the amount of food we'd need to consume each day to maintain vigilance as Gotham City's guardian. A fun foray of escapism grounded in sound science, Becoming Batman provides the background for attaining the realizable -- though extreme -- level of human performance that would allow you to be a superhero.
