   -- Brooklyn, NY : Gigantic Graphic Novels, 2005. -- 255 p.
   : ill. ; 27 cm. -- "This vol. collects 1-8 of the comic
   book series 'Teenagers from Mars' originally self-published
   by Rick Spears and Rob G." -- Summary (from OCLC): When
   Macon is beaten up by his boss, his comic-obsessed friends
   intervene and together they form the Comic Book Liberation
   Army, which prompts the town to take action against the
   fledgling club. Max is a grave-robbing 13-year-old who
   gathers relics to pawn for comic book money. Macon works at
   the local Mallmart by day and publishes his comic book
   manifestos by night. Madison is a punk beauty who just
   might be able to fly. When Macon gets badly beaten in a
   fight with his boss over comic books, Macon and Madison
   take revenge by smashing the front of the store. They leave
   their calling card graffitied across the wreckage: Comic
   Book Liberation Army. The next day Max joins in the mayhem
   and soon the town has declared all-out war on comic books.
   Thus begins Teenagers From Mars, a chaotic comics
   extravaganza in which three teens strive against
   censorship, and adults, to protect the comics they love.
   Originally published as a series of comics, Teenagers from
   Mars shows what happens when people who love comics enough
   to fight for them are forced to. -- Call no.: PN6727.G12T4

   of the planet Kazhann are plunderers whose religion is art.
   The Superior Shaan orders the remains of the rebel Sloan
   uncovered and brought to him. A woman penetrates the train
   transporting the corpse, and revives Sloane. Sloane vows to
   vanquish the Emperor. The woman says her name is Legend,
   mistress of the "Guild of Voice," a singer. Legend saves
   Sloane from madness. She explains that the funeral train
   they are riding is the Emperor's mental projection of
   Mozart's Requiem, and that she got in by knowing codes and
   songs taught to her by her father. The Blue Barons learn
   that Sloane is alive, and determine to help him by
   rebelling against the Emperor Shaan. One of the Barons'
   warriors, named Vuzz, salutes Sloane and pledges his aid.
   Shaan attacks, and reveals that he is what Sloane himself
   will become after 300 years. Sloane denies this, and says
   there are alternate futures. Legend attacks, and the evil
   is defeated. The Blue Barons present Sloane with his
   reconstructed ship, O Siddharta. Sloane is reunited with
   Vuzz and Yearl. -- Call no.: PN6747.D7C4713 2000

   (by Mary Walker): Superman finds a large intergenerational
   ship with a war raging on board most of the vessel while
   the control center seems at peace. He finds that the
   navigational caste has no idea of what is going on in the
   rest of the ship and little contact except in emergencies.
   Superman then goes to the main areas of the ship to stop
   the war. The combatants stop long enough to explain that
   they have "divided into nations according to our various
   races and religions. Differences inevitably lead to
   conflict!" and then resume their fighting. He wishes they
   could be persuaded to work together as they did in building
   the ship in the first place--that thought gives him an
   idea. He sends the ship to a suitable, uninhabited planet
   and they disembark taking their personal belongings and the
   useful machinery but leaving the weapons behind. A pleased
   Superman looks on at the aliens who have put violence and
   hate aside to make a new civilization. -- Call no.:
