Conspiracy theories, pending Ice Ages, potential revolutions, viral epidemics, and other doomsday prophecies: whereveryou look--from the cover ofTime magazine to the weird weather outside your window--the message seems universal: the Earth our children inherit will certainly be nothing like the one we currently inhabit.

Ultimately,Forecast is an optimistic book: using humor, it encourages all of us to take responsibility for predictions of the future and to take action to affect change.Forecast is the latest installment of Nozone.

Gilmore by the Sea by
Almost a century ago, the Gilmore Hotel was a landmark for luxurious living on Nye Beach in Newport, a small town on the Central Oregon Coast. By the 1960s, the hotel was low-cost housing for fishermen, service workers, and retirees. Its residents dubbed their home, ¿the only flophouse with an ocean view and a waiting list.¿
The stories in this book are from the Gilmore Hotel¿s last days, told by one of its residents, in the style of a graphic novel and short story combo, embedded with comic realism.
In 1987, the Gilmore was renovated and the building once again became a quaint destination resort. The building was reborn as the world class Sylvia Beach Hotel by two ladies named Goody (Gundrun) Cable and Sally Ford. They keep the old charm intact.

"Poised to inspire a new generation of naturalists." - Publishers Weekly A vibrant graphic adaptation of the classic science memoir Regarded as one of the world's preeminent biologists, Edward O. Wilson spent his boyhood exploring the forests and swamps of south Alabama and the Florida panhandle, collecting snakes, butterflies, and ants--the latter to become his lifelong specialty. His memoir Naturalist, called "one of the finest scientific memoirs ever written" by the Los Angeles Times, is an inspiring account of Wilson's growth as a scientist and the evolution of the fields he helped define. This graphic edition, adapted by New York Times bestselling comics writer Jim Ottaviani and illustrated by C.M.Butzer, brings Wilson's childhood and celebrated career to life through dynamic full-color illustrations and Wilson's own lyric writing. In this adaptation of Naturalist, vivid illustrations draw readers in to Wilson's lifelong quest to explore and protect the natural world. His success began not with an elite education but an insatiable curiosity about Earth's wild creatures, and this new edition of Naturalist makes Wilson's work accessible for anyone who shares his passion. On every page, striking art adds immediacy and highlights the warmth and sense of humor that sets Wilson's writing apart. Naturalist was written as an invitation--a reminder that curiosity is vital and scientific exploration is open to all of us. Each dynamic frame of this graphic adaptation deepens Wilson's message, renewing his call to discover and celebrate the little things of the world.
