Animal characters abound in graphic narratives ranging from Krazy Kat and Maus to WE3 and Terra Formars. Exploring these and other multispecies storyworlds presented in words and images, Animal Comics draws together work in comics studies, narrative theory, and cross-disciplinary research on animal environments and human-animal relationships to shed new light on comics and graphic novels in which animal agents play a significant role. At the same time, the volume's international team of contributors show how the distinctive structures and affordances of graphic narratives foreground key questions about trans-species entanglements in a more-than-human world. The writers/artists covered in the book include: Nick Abadzis, Adolpho Avril, Jeffrey Brown, Sue Coe, Matt Dembicki, Olivier Deprez, J. J. Grandville, George Herriman, Adam Hines, William Hogarth, Grant Morrison, Osamu Tezuka, Frank Quitely, Yu Sasuga, Charles M. Schultz, Art Spiegelman, Fiona Staples, Ken'ichi Tachibana, Brian K. Vaughan, and others.

Robotics: Science and Systems VI spans a wide spectrum of robotics, bringing together researchers working on the foundations of robotics, robotics applications, and the analysis of robotics systems. This volume presents the proceedings of the sixth Robotics: Science and Systems conference, held in 2010 at the University of Zaragoza, Spain. The papers presented cover a wide range of topics in robotics, spanning mechanisms, kinematics, dynamics and control, human-robot interaction and human-centered systems, distributed systems, mobile systems and mobility, manipulation, field robotics, medical robotics, biological robotics, robot perception, and estimation and learning in robotic systems. The conference and its proceedings reflect not only the tremendous growth of robotics as a discipline but also the desire in the robotics community for a flagship event at which the best of the research in the field can be presented.

Somebody was testing a planet-killing weapon on Mars¾ and the next target was Earth Mars is the staging ground. Earth is the target. A storm of invasion gathers as the Red Planet pales and Earth scientists _ amateurs and professionals alike _ race to discover what it portends. Worse news: the horde of self-replicating probes suspected as the cause _ implacable and all-consuming in its own right _ may be only the tip of a full-scale assault. Ideas ¾ the only useful weapon when facing an adversary an order of magnitude more advanced than you are. But against such an enemy, thought without action is as futile as war-making without a plan. Humanitys hope? The _straddlersÓ: intelligent soldiers who know their science ¾ and fighting scientists who have no scruples about using their smarts to kick some alien butt. Yet even with the right people finally on the job, the hour is late. For Mars glows red again. And the swarm is nearly upon us! At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). Multiple New York Times and USA Today best-seller John Ringo rocks our world as hard as he did with his ground-breaking "Posleen War" series, teaming with NASA and DOD scientist Travis S. Taylor, a specialist in advanced propulsion and space telescopes ¾ and popular author of Warp Speed and The Quantum Connection ¾ to usher in a new saga of invasion, resistance and heroism! "If Tom Clancy were writing SF, it would read much like John Ringo." ¾Philadelphia Weekly Press on New York Times best-seller John Ringo. "[S]timulating and satisfying speculation." ¾Publishers Weekly on Travis S. Taylor's The Quantum Connection.
