Ice Cream Man Vol 2; Strange Neapolitan, by W. Maxwell Prince

Staff Pick

Ice Cream Man is a terrific work of contemporary absurdism that gives form and intent to the forces that undermine and erase all that we love, trading the universe’s devastating ambivalence for something garish and malevolent. Morazzo’s abstracted figures and O’Halloran’s simplified color palette give perfect form to Prince’s tales of existential horror. The creators often toy with surprising formal devices, experimenting with the possibilities of their medium in a way that dodges the overly cerebral and instead brings an extra bit of fun to this delightfully horrifying series.

Tennis Science: How Player and Racquet Work Together - Bruce Elliott

Staff Pick

Tennis, more so than basketball or football, is a game of physics (angles, spin, torque, velocity, force, vectors), played with athleticism and high precision on a frustratingly small court. And thus tennis fans, more so than those of basketball or football, obsess about technique. We daydream, for example, about the effortless way the perfectly-directed momentum of a racquet-head imposes a trajectory upon a yellow felt ball. This is a book for tennis fanatics looking to geek out over technique, or for a gift-giver to bind the tennis fanatic in his or her life to undying loyalty.
