WONDER WOMAN: THE TRUE AMAZON is Jill Thompson's storybook-style
reimagining of the early years of the Amazon Princess Diana, who would grow up

nation, she soon grows spoiled. But a series of tragic events take their toll,
and Diana must learn to grow up, take responsibility, and seize her destiny.
Steeped in the mythology of this iconic character's original conception, WONDER
WOMAN: THE TRUE AMAZON is designed to appeal to a wide range of readers. It's a
fresh, stand alone interpretation of the most famous and iconic female superhero
of all time and the fulfillment of a dream project by one of contemporary
comics' most acclaimed creators.

Doctor Who: The Legends of River Song
Melody Pond, Melody Malone, River Song...She has had many names. Whoever she really is, this archaeologist and time traveller has had more adventures (and got into more trouble) than most people in the universe.
And she's written a lot of it down. Well, when you're married to a Time Lord (or possibly not), you have to keep track of what you did and when. Especially as it may not actually have happened to both of you yet.
These are just a few of River Song's exploits, extracted from her journals. Sometimes, she is with the Doctor. Sometimes she's on her own. But wherever and whenever she may be, she is never far from danger and excitement.
This is just a tiny portion of her impossible life. But it will reveal more than you've ever known about the legend that is River Song.

Scrappy Little Nobody
`Fearsome wit' Elle`Charming' Buzzfeed`Ridiculously entertaining' Associated Press`Endearingly honest' Guardian A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Pitch Perfect, Twilight, Up in the Air, Into the Woods and Trolls. Even before she made a name for herself on the silver screen, Anna Kendrick was unusually small, weird, defiant, and `10 per cent weird'. When she was thirteen, a classmate dropped by her house unexpectedly and discovered written evidence of Anna's social ineptitude. From then on she decided to `keep the crazy inside my head where it belonged. Forever. But here's the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out.' In Scrappy Little Nobody, she invites her readers inside her brain, sharing extraordinary and charmingly ordinary stories with candour and winningly wry observations. With her razor-sharp wit, Anna recounts the absurdities she's experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture as only she can - from her unusual path to the performing arts (her older brother's affinity for Vanilla Ice may have inadvertently launched her career) to her double life as a middle-school student who also starred on Broadway to her initial `dating experiments' (including only liking boys who didn't like her back) to the perils of reading The Shining while filming Twilight in the isolated Canadian wilderness to reviewing a binder full of butt doubles to her struggle to live like an adult woman instead of a perpetual `man-child'. Enter Anna's world and follow her rise from `scrappy little nobody' to someone who dazzles on the stage, the screen, and now the page - with an electric, singular voice, at once familiar and surprising, sharp and sweet, funny and serious (well, not that serious).
