BOWIE: Stardust, Rayguns, & Moonage Daydream
Covering the period in David Bowie’s career where he wrote, arranged and recorded THE RISE AND FALL OF ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS. Written by Steve Horton, with art by Michael Allred.
ANXIETY IS REALLY STRANGE by Steve Haines
What is the difference between fear and excitement and how can you tell them apart? How do the mind and body make emotions? When can anxiety be good? This science-based graphic book addresses these questions and more, revealing just how strange anxiety is, but also how to unravel its mysteries and relieve its effects. It’s also rather timely with what is currently going on in the world.
