Our new raffle book The Far Side Gallery by Gary Larson. This collection of Far Side cartoons will have grinning and laughing for hours.

Gary Larson's The Far Side has become a worldwide phenomenon. Single Panel cartoons that depict simple jokes and quirks, all of which are original and often times referring to historic events and children's stories. They are often times silly and/or funny, while other times research must be done in order to fully understand them.  The Far Side is one of those artworks that asks you to meet it halfway by slightly relaxing one's grip on mundane reality.  This large-format collection of hundreds of hilarious Far Side cartoons was the first in the popular "Gallery" series.

Jeff Mace wants to be more than a hero!

Cover.jpg

He wants to be a symbol!

The appearance of Captain America in 1941 inspired a nation on the brink of war, including reporter Jeff Mace. After seeing Captain America in action, Mace chooses to become the Patriot and leads a group of heroes, the Liberty Legion, against Axis threats at home.  After the war, Mace discovers the truth: Captain America died during the war in a plane crash, and another man replaced him.  The symbol is more important than the man who wears the costume.  Now, Mace is asked to be the next Captain America!  Can he live up to the legend that preceded him and find a role for Cap in the aftermath of World War II? This is the story of a man who was a great Patriot and his determination to be something more – his attempt to be not just a hero, but a symbol of hope in post-war America.
