Steve McQueen: Full-Throttle Cool explores the life story of one of Hollywood’s sexiest leading men in an artistic, graphic-novel format.

AREA 51: The Graphic History of America’s Most Secret Military Installation looks behind the real history – minus the aliens and sci-fi movie plots- of one of America’s most famous military installations. Author Dwight Zimmerman and artist Greg Scott reveal in detail how for more than 60 years, the CIA, the U.S. Air Force and aerospace company Lockheed Martin have all used AREA 51 as a staging ground for test flights of experimental or highly classified aircrafts. This first-of-its-kind graphic history strips away the fantastical aspects of this mysterious location and establishes the actual, significant history made there.
