Brian Wood and artist Riccardo Burchielli´s DMZ was one of DC Vertigo´s longest-running series, and the final arc to the saga is here in DMZ Book Five, now in paperback. The final year of DMZ begins here! After six years of adventures--and misadventures--across the DMZ, Matty Roth´s story is near its end in the last volume of Brian Wood´s acclaimed series. Revisit the origins of this Second American Civil War and see just how a dangerous idea can ripple through a population and result in one of the most infamous wars in world history. The Free States army, equally vilified as insurgents and praised as patriots, gains more and more ground as the fabric of American society comes apart. Finally stopped at the Hudson by veteran U.S. troops, the glittering prize of the city of Manhattan is rapidly reduced to a war-torn slum, a.k.a the DMZ. Brian Wood presents the final stories of the unforgettable DMZ series in DMZ Book Five. Collects DMZ #60-72.

New York Times bestselling author Peter V. Brett brings one of the most imaginative fantasy sagas of the twenty-first century to an epic close. For time out of mind, bloodthirsty demons have stalked the night, culling the human race to scattered remnants dependent on half-forgotten magics to protect them. Then two heroes arose-men as close as brothers, yet divided by bitter betrayal. Arlen Bales became known as the Warded Man, tattooed head to toe with powerful magic symbols that enable him to fight demons in hand-to-hand combat-and emerge victorious. Jardir, armed with magically warded weapons, called himself the Deliverer, a figure prophesied to unite humanity and lead them to triumph in Sharak Ka-the final war against demonkind. But in their efforts to bring the war to the demons, Arlen and Jardir have set something in motion that may prove the end of everything they hold dear-a swarm. Now the war is at hand, and humanity cannot hope to win it unless Arlen and Jardir, with the help of Arlen´s wife, Renna, can bend a captured demon prince to their will and force the devious creature to lead them to the Core, where the Mother of Demons breeds an inexhaustible army. Trusting their closest confidantes, Leesha, Inevera, Ragen, and Elissa, to rally the fractious people of the Free Cities and lead them against the swarm, Arlen, Renna, and Jardir set out on a desperate quest into the darkest depths of evil-from which none of them expects to return alive.

Miyamoto Musashi´s Go Rin no Sho or the book of five rings, is considered a classic treatise on military strategy, much like Sun Tzu´s The Art of War and Chanakya´s Arthashastra. The five ´´books´´ refer to the idea that there are different elements of battle, just as there are different physical elements in life, as described by Buddhism, Shinto, and other Eastern religions. Through the book Musashi defends his thesis: a man who conquers himself is ready to take it on on the world, should need arise.
