Gandhi : a manga biography -- Through his quietly powerful leadership and influential use of nonviolent resistance in India's struggle against the British Raj, Mahatma Gandhi became one of the most revered figures of the modern era. While history has recorded Gandhi's words and deeds, the man himself has been eclipsed by maxims of virtuosity that seem to have little resonance in our everyday lives.

The Flash. The road to Flashpoint -- Something is coming, something so destructive to the timestream that young people are suddenly dying of old age.
