Erin è la dea più giovane dell'Olimpo, nata per essere l'erede di Zeus. Follemente innamorata del dio della guerra Ares, cercherà di conquistarlo senza tuttavia ottenere nulla. Quando crede di essere a una possibile svolta, qualcuno la blocca sulla terra precludendole la possibilità di tornare a casa. Qui conoscerà l'amore umano, ma anche la morte. L'unico modo per tornare è trovare colui che tutto può, colui che in un'altra vita avrebbe potuto amare. Riuscirà la nostra Erin a far ritorno sull'Olimpo?

The much-anticipated follow-up to the five-time sold-out series that The Onion/A.V. Club calls the ÒBest New Superhero of 2015Ó is here! At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union - determined to win the Space Race at any cost Ð green lit a dangerously advanced mission. They sent three cosmonauts farther into space than anyone has gone before or since. Handpicked orphans with no connections to Earth, trained as devout Communists, and restricted from having families, they became lost in the stars and encountered something unknown... Something that changed them. Long thought lost and erased from the history books, Abram Adams was the first to return, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. But, even with seemingly limitless power at his fingertips, he is concerned only with the secret love he hid away from his superiors and the unborn child he never had a chance to meet. Now, Myshka, the female co-pilot of the group, has also returned to Earth...but, unlike Abram she had no secret family. Unlike Abram, she still believes in the Communist ideal. And, unlike Abram, she intends to play a very real role in the return of Soviet glory. Collecting DIVINITY II #1Ð4.

The Cheese And The Worms

The Cheese and the Worms is an incisive study of popular culture in the sixteenth century as seen through the eyes of one man, the miller known as Menocchio, who was accused of heresy during the Inquisition and sentenced to death. Carlo Ginzburg uses the trial records to illustrate the confusing political and religious conditions of the time. For a common miller, Menocchio was surprisingly literate. In his trial testimony he made references to more than a dozen books, including the Bible, Boccaccio's Decameron, Mandeville's Travels, and a "mysterious" book that may have been the Koran. And what he read he recast in terms familiar to him, as in his own version of the creation: "All was chaos, that is earth, air, water, and fire were mixed together; and of that bulk a mass formed—just as cheese is made out of milk—and worms appeared in it, and these were the angels." Ginzburg’s influential book has been widely regarded as an early example of the analytic, case-oriented approach known as microhistory. In a thoughtful new preface, Ginzburg offers his own corollary to Menocchio’s story as he considers the discrepancy between the intentions of the writer and what gets written. The Italian miller’s story and Ginzburg’s work continue to resonate with modern readers because they focus on how oral and written culture are inextricably linked. Menocchio’s 500-year-old challenge to authority remains evocative and vital today. -- Lauro Martines
