It's 30 years since Alex began his career in the City of London as a Yuppie banker. Today's post-crisis financial reality comes as a grim contrast to those heady, carefree days, with all the additional uncertainties of Brexit, President Trump and a General Election. On the domestic front Alex's wife Penny's blossoming career as a nonexecutive director means he has the indignity of attending the World Economic Forum at Davos as her 'plus one'; his hapless colleague Clive's divorce from fearsome wife Bridget is getting particularly messy and expensive; and consternation is caused at the bank when Alex's colleague Steven unexpectedly comes out as a transgender woman. The star of the Daily Telegraph's business pages divides his time between worrying about his job being relocated to Frankfurt post-Brexit, fretting over the arrival of the draconian new compliance regime Mifid II, which will make half the City redundant, and remaining blissfuly ignorant about BlockChain - which will do the same for anyone who's left. The Best of Alex is now in full colour.

In this heart-pounding, starkly colored, and visually stunning graphic novel, three women have twelve hours to get out of Cuba with six-million dollars on the night of New Year’s Eve 1958. Gangster’s moll Carole, jazz singer Taffy, and mambo queen Ana all have their reasons for needing to escape the El Eden Casino in Havana. And on the tumultuous night of New Year’s Eve, when Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista flees the country and the nation falls to Fidel Castro, they get their chance...with the help of six suitcases filled with stolen dirty money. Of course, it’s one thing to get the cash...and quite another to get off the island alive. From the Eisner-nominated writer Alex de Campi and virtuoso artist Victor Santos, this story of three strong and multifaceted women struggling to leave their pasts behind in a tension-filled getaway is timely, fast-paced, and gripping.

*An NBC Today Show Book Club Pick!* *A Seventeen Magazine Best YA Book of 2018!* *A Kirkus Best YA Fantasy Book of the Year* *A We Need Diverse Books 2018 Must-Read* "Epic thrills, heart-punching romance, and a marvel of a hero" --Adam Silvera, New York Times-bestselling author of They Both Die at the End The people of Uztar have long looked to the sky with hope and wonder. Nothing in their world is more revered than the birds of prey and no one more honored than the falconers who call them to their fists. Brysen strives to be a great falconer—while his twin sister, Kylee, rejects her ancient gifts for the sport and wishes to be free of falconry. She’s nearly made it out, too, but a war is rolling toward their home in the Six Villages, and no bird or falconer will be safe. Together the twins must journey into the treacherous mountains to trap the Ghost Eagle, the greatest of the Uztari birds and a solitary killer. Brysen goes for the boy he loves and the glory he's long craved, and Kylee to atone for her past and to protect her brother's future. But both are hunted by those who seek one thing: power. In this first young-adult fantasy novel in a trilogy, Alex London launches a soaring saga about the memories that haunt us, the histories that hunt us, and the bonds of blood between us.
