Long Time No See

Well, it’s been awhile since I added anything to the site but we do have some new titles for you to check out.

This is a brand new title at MCPL. It is only in the Centereach building in the Adult GN collection.

Black Bird volumes 1-8

There is a world of myth and magic that intersects ours, and only a special few can see it. Misao Harada is one such person, and she wants nothing to do with magical realms. She just wants to have a normal high school life and maybe get a boyfriend. All that changes one day when Misao is attacked by a demon. Her childhood friend Kyo suddenly returns to save her and tend to her cuts–with his tongue! It turns out Misao is the bride of prophecy, whose blood gives power to the demon clan who claims her. But most demons want to keep her power for themselves–by eating her! Now Misao is just trying to stay alive…and decide if she likes it when Kyo licks her wounds.

Toradora Vol 1, Centereach and Selden YA GN

Ryuji Takasu has learned the hard way that appearances can be deceiving. Despite his inwardly sweet personality, his unintentionally sharp gaze and aggressive features give him the air of a delinquent thug, putting his chances at making friends, let alone a girlfriend, next to zero.

He gets to sit in between his only friend, Yusaku, and, more importantly, the girl he’s secretly crushing on, Minori Kushieda. But just when he thinks the stars are aligned in his favor, he unwittingly crosses the most feared girl in school, Taiga Aisaku, making her onto his arch enemy. To top it off, Taiga has moved in right next door to Ryuji and happens to be Minori’s best friend! Can this school year possibly get any worse?!

When the lead singer of Blaue Rosen announces she is moving overseas, Akira does all he can to convince Mizuki and her bandmates to let him join. But will a resistant Mizuki allow him into her band, much less her heart?

Alchemy: the mystical power to alter the natural world, somewhere between magic art, and science. When two brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, dabbled in these powers to grant their dearest wish, one of them lost an arm and leg…and the other became nothing but a soul locked into a body of living iron. Now they are agents of the government, slaves of the military -alchemical complex, using their unique powers to obey their orders…even to kill. But their powers aren’t unique. The world crawls with evil alchemists. And in pursuit of the ultimate alchemical treasure, the Philsopher’s Stone, their enemies are even more ruthless than they are…

Batman: Knight and Squire, Centereach Adult GN

Just as Gotham City has Batman and Robin, London has Knight and Squire – the British heroes and frequent allies of The Dark Knight.

In a secret bar within the city where magic is used to keep the peace, heroes and villains gather to enjoy a pint and talk about their days. But what happens when the magical barriers that prevent fighting are dropped and a building full of heroes and villains confront each other all at once? Knight and Squire have to save both friend and foe in this tale from hot writer Paul Cornell (ACTION COMICS) and up-and-coming artist Jimmy Broxton (THE UNWRITTEN).

Arkham Asylum Madness, Centereach Adult GN

It is the most feared house in all of Gotham. It contains the worst that the city has to offer. It is the place where the Dark Knight’s most dangerous and psychotic foes call home. Writer / artist Sam Kieth, the creator of THE MAXX, invites you to spend 24 hours in the most haunted house in the DC Universe, Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane in this original Batman graphic novel.

The Walking Dead 14, Centereach GN

n The Walking Dead vol. 14, No Way Out, the survivors learn that there’s no place like home, nor no place so dangerous. As former sheriff and reluctant leader Rick Grimes continues his role as peacekeeper in his new-found sanctuary he learns that things aren’t quite as secure as they seemed. Meanwhile, Michonne and Morgan hope to find a new chance at love, if they can let down their guard and remember what that normal life was like to begin with.

The walls come down in what is likely the most jarring, gruesome chapter in The Walking Dead saga to date. If there’s a message at all to be found in all the blood and grue, it’s that no one is safe, and there truly is no way out from the hell that is post-rising Earth.
