Economic ruin has descended on Europe. Civil war among the drug cartels in Mexico rages out of control. The United States Federal Government debates endlessly, but does nothing as the ruin in Europe slowly spreads around the world. With the end drawing near, Governor Katherine Brewster calls upon an intrepid businesswoman with a shaky past and the few allies they have to save California before infighting among the cartels spreading north and government corruption destroys them all...and takes the country with them. Meanwhile, Detective Timothy Burns works the streets of Los Angeles on the LAPD Gang Taskforce as turf wars begin erupting out of control without cause or warning. As the body-count racks up, he begins to realize that not everything, including the motives of the government he serves, is as it seems, and may be about to doom them all...

Why do so many people identify with Ziggy? Because he represents the innocent side in everyone, the optimist who lives deep down and wants to see the good in everything. No matter how bad things get, Ziggy always finds the bright spot. Because he relates better to his animal friends than to people, this adorable underdog often contemplates the meaning of life with his cuddly and accepting pets. In every panel, his insecurities encourages us to laugh at ourselves and to take everything in stride. Syndicated since 1971, Ziggy is faithfully read by millions of readers every day. His message is one of hope and humor and hanging on to your dreams even when everything's got you down. Ziggy is a comic strip that has more than stood the test of time--with fun and spirit.

Ziggy  Stardust and Me

Dulick's sitting on the edge of his desk, book in hand opened to some page I do
not know, radiating a smile. Okay, he's a good guy. ... I somehow make it to the
front of the room without high-kicking someone in the face. I'm definitely short-

Goldie Hawn on Laugh-In. “You can go to any place and to any time that you
wish to go.

In this tender-hearted debut, set against the tumultuous backdrop of life in 1973, when homosexuality is still considered a mental illness, two boys defy all the odds and fall in love. The year is 1973. The Watergate hearings are in full swing. The Vietnam War is still raging. And homosexuality is still officially considered a mental illness. In the midst of these trying times is sixteen-year-old Jonathan Collins, a bullied, anxious, asthmatic kid, who aside from an alcoholic father and his sympathetic neighbor and friend Starla, is completely alone. To cope, Jonathan escapes to the safe haven of his imagination, where his hero David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and dead relatives, including his mother, guide him through the rough terrain of his life. In his alternate reality, Jonathan can be anything: a superhero, an astronaut, Ziggy Stardust, himself, or completely "normal" and not a boy who likes other boys. When he completes his treatments, he will be normal--at least he hopes. But before that can happen, Web stumbles into his life. Web is everything Jonathan wishes he could be: fearless, fearsome and, most importantly, not ashamed of being gay. Jonathan doesn't want to like brooding Web, who has secrets all his own. Jonathan wants nothing more than to be "fixed" once and for all. But he's drawn to Web anyway. Web is the first person in the real world to see Jonathan completely and think he's perfect. Web is a kind of escape Jonathan has never known. For the first time in his life, he may finally feel free enough to love and accept himself as he is. A poignant coming-of-age tale, Ziggy, Stardust and Me heralds the arrival of a stunning and important new voice in YA.

The charm of Ziggy is that he lives a sweetly simple life. Things often don't go his way, but he always perseveres and maintains his sunny outlook. Ziggy is Everyperson, the part of us that harbors warm feelings and good intentions but sometimes gets stepped on by a reckless world. In the great tradition of Ben Franklin, Roy Rogers, and Forrest Gump, Ziggy delivers his own homespun philosophy and retains his individualism and character, regardless of the transforming forces at work in a swiftly changing world. Since 1971, Ziggy has remained true to himself. The world has changed, and the topics addressed in the cartoon have changed along with it, but at his core, Ziggy himself has not changed. Readers wouldn't have it any other way. Comforted and inspired by his steadfastness, his tenacity, and his gentle spirit, Ziggy fans have been intensely loyal for over three decades-and that hasn't changed, either.Ziggy runs in more than 600 newspapers and reaches 75 million readers.

SIGMUND "ZIGGY" BLISSMAN isn't the best-looking, sanest boy in the world. Far, far from it. But this misfit child of a failed husband-and-wife vaudeville team has one (and only one) thing going for him: He can crack people up merely by batting his eyelashes. And Vittorio "Vic" Fontana, the son of a fisherman, is a fraud. Barely able to carry a tune or even stay awake while attempting to, the indolent baritone (if that's what he is) has one thing going for him: Women love to look at him. On their own, they're failures. But on one summer night in the Catskills, they step onstage and together become the funniest men -- and the hottest act -- in America. Funnymen is the wildly inventive story of Fountain and Bliss, the comedy duo that delighted America in the 1940s and '50s. Conceived as a fictional oral biography and filled with more than seventy memorable characters, Funnymen details the extraordinary careers of two men whose professional success is never matched in their personal lives. The two men fight constantly with their managers, their wives, their children, their mistresses, and those responsible for their success: each other. The stories recounted about Vic and Ziggy -- and the truths Heller reveals about human ambition, egotism, and friendship -- make Funnymen a wild ride of a novel that is also a rare and imaginative masterpiece of storytelling.
