Before there was WATCHMEN, there was SUPERFOLKS.... David Brinkley used to be a hero, the greatest the world had ever seen--until he retired, got married, moved to the suburbs, and packed on a few extra pounds. Now all the heroes are dead or missing, and his beloved New York is on the edge of chaos. It's up to Brinkley to come to the rescue, but he's in the midst of a serious mid-life crisis--his superpowers are failing him. At long last this classic satire that inspired comic books like Watchmen and Miracleman is back in print. It's a hilarious thriller that digs deep into the American psyche.

Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’s Watchmen has been widely hailed as a landmark in the development of the graphic novel. It was not only aesthetically groundbreaking but also anticipated future developments in politics, literature, and intellectual property. Demonstrating a keen eye for historical detail, Considering Watchmen gives readers a new appreciation of just how radical Moore and Gibbons’s blend of gritty realism and formal experimentation was back in 1986. The book also considers Watchmen’s place in the history of the comics industry, reading the graphic novel’s playful critique of superhero marketing alongside Alan Moore’s public statements about the rights to the franchise. Andrew Hoberek examines how Moore and Gibbons engaged with the emerging discourses of neoconservatism and neoliberal capitalism, ideologies that have only become more prominent in subsequent years. Watchmen’s influences on the superhero comic and graphic novel are undeniable, but Hoberek reveals how it has also had profound effects on literature as a whole. He suggests that Watchmen not only proved that superhero comics could rise to the status of literature—it also helped to inspire a generation of writers who are redefining the boundaries of the literary, from Jonathan Lethem to Junot Díaz. Hoberek delivers insight and analysis worthy of satisfying serious readers of the genre while shedding new light on Watchmen as both an artistic accomplishment and a book of ideas.

When a knock on the door interrupts her nightly escape into the pages of a cheap romance, Midge, aka Beatrice Audra Smith, is understandably annoyed. Paperback romances may not be the world's best protection against the "lonelies," but what else is a 4'11," 87 pound, 30 1/4 year-old dreamer to do in the middle of the Enchantment Trailer Park in Santa Fe? Enter Horace Decker, out on parole and in every sense a getaway man. He explains his presence outside Midge's trailer as easily as he will capture her heart: "I got paroled two hours ago. Jake said he got this cute little sister. Said to look you up." So what if the most memorable thing Jake ever did for his sister was strand her in a darkened church after stealing a sacred statue. Maybe this ex-con is just what Midge needs to forget the recent loss of her pet prairie dog. "Well come on in then," she says. "Any cellmate of Jake's is a cellmate of mine." Lucky for Midge. And for Decker. And especially for the reader. For the story of what happens when these two discover each other is by turns exhilarating and sad, humorous and heartwarming, and always engaging. Set largely at the local race track, the adventures of Midge and Decker remind us that breaking even in life not only involves time, but luck, as well. Sometimes it's a matter of finding the right person. Or the right place. Or even the right horse, as Midge will realize after placing a most unusual bet: if Blue Lady wins the Unicorn Handicap, Decker will finally settle down, marry Midge, and give his name to the unborn child she carries by him. If Blue Lady loses, Decker can run away yet again. Though made impulsively, Midge's wager quickly looms larger and larger in her mind. The fate of those things that have outlived their usefulness-old dolls and old horses that just cannot run-disturbs Midge, forcing her to act as a kind of savior. Her knack for turning discarded losing tickets into a winning system demonstrates that salvation is indeed possible in some cases. The road to maturity is a long one, certainly longer than the race Blue Lady will run at the Downs, and sacrifices have to be made along the way. But maturity need not spell the end of innocence. While Midge learns that toughness is indispensable for daily survival (she agrees with Decker's characteristically succinct assessment of human existence: "Ain't nobody gets a free ride"), she retains her own special innocence that gains charm through her acquired strength. And for all his gruffness, Decker, too, possesses a youthful tenderness. Like memories of childhood and first romance, the effect of Midge and Decker endures. It is an unusual love story that is profoundly human. It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. Most of all you will find Midge and her story completely irresistible.
