“The Supergirls is a long overdue tribute to the fabulous fighting females whose beauty and bravery brighten the pages of your favorite comics.—Stan Lee “Mike Madrid's fast-moving, encyclopedic, and often funny Supergirls shows the author's lifelong affection for these heroines on every page. He has a great feel for the genre and its history, with evident sensitivity to issues of female power and powerlessness. The section on the She-Hulk is not to be missed!—Larry Gonick, Cartoon History of the Universe “Entertaining and informative, Supergirls is a breezy and thoroughly accessible history of the comic book heroine. A great resource!—Marc Andreyko, Manhunter and Torso “The Supergirls, Mike Madrid's book about the evolution of female comic-book characters, is sharp and lively — and just obsessive enough about women who wear capes and boots to be cool but not creepy. The guy clearly loves this stuff. And he's enough of a historian to be able to trace the ways in which the portrayal of sirens and supergirls has echoed society's ever-changing feelings about women and sex. The book has some illustrations, but no comic-book art. That's a bit of a drag, but presumably a function of how much the rights to the artwork would have cost. In any case, all the lovely crime fighters that Madrid champions are as close as a comic-book store.—Entertainment Weekly “...Even as it delivers its clear-eyed critique of the way mainstream superhero comics have alternately eroticized or deified female characters, The Supergirls gleefully celebrates the medium itself, in all its goofy, glorious excess.—NPR A much-needed alternative history of American comic book superheroines—from Wonder Woman to Supergirl and beyond—where they fit in popular culture and why, and what these crime-fighting females say about the role of women in American society from their creation to now, and into the future. The Supergirls is an entertaining and informative look at these modern-day icons, exploring how superheroines fare in American comics, and what it means for the culture when they do everything the superhero does, but in thongs and high heels. Has Wonder Woman hit the comic book glass ceiling? Is that the one opposition that even her Amazonian strength can’t defeat? Mike Madrid, a San Francisco-based refugee from the world of advertising, is a lifelong fan of comic books and popular culture. His goal is to inform and entertain readers with a new look at modern-day icons. He’s popular culture editor for Exterminating Angel Press and the creator of , where comic book fantasies come to life.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 9/1/2009Pages: 334

Peoples are strange! The things they are doing and saying—sometimes they make no sense. Did their brains fall out of their heads? And why so much saying, so much talking all the time day and night, all those words spilling out of those mouths? Why so much? Why don't they be quiet? In the ancient stone tower of the Casa Rosa, in a tiny village high in the Swiss Alps, life for one angel has been the same, well, for as long as she (or he?) can remember. Until Zola arrives, a determined American girl who wears three skirts all at once. For neighbors who have been longtime enemies, children who have been lost, and villagers who have been sleepily living their lives: hold on. Zola and the angel are about to collide. Figs start flying, dogs start arfing, and the whole village begins to wake up. Zola is a girl with a mission. And our angel has been without one—till now. This hilarious and endearing novel by Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech reminds us that magic is found in the most ordinary acts of kindness.

Angel Island, off the coast of California, was the port of entry for Asian immigrants to the United States between 1892 and 1940. Following the passage of legislation requiring the screening of immigrants, "the other Ellis Island" processed around one million people from Japan, China, and Korea. Drawing from memoirs, diaries, letters, and the "wall poems" discovered at the facility long after it closed, the nonfiction master Russell Freedman describes the people who came, and why; the screening process; detention and deportation; changes in immigration policy; and the eventual renaissance of Angel Island as a historic site open to visitors. Includes archival photos, source notes, bibliography, and index.Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 1/7/2014Pages: 96Reading Level: Age 9 and Up
Turns out being the only guy at an all-girls school isn't exactly a dream come true. Rafael Angelos just arrived at his new school to discover that there are NO other male students-and he's ready to milk that for all its worth. But while the girls at St. Mary's are ridiculously hot, they also take popularity, cliques, and bullying to new levels of crazy. So Raffi decides to step in. Protect the meek, smite the wicked, and maybe even win the heart of a beautiful victim while he's at it. Pretty soon, though, Raffi's gig as self-appointed "guardian angel" starts feeling...a little too realistic. All he wanted was to play the hero long enough to get a girlfriend-not to mysteriously spout three pairs of wings and a weird, glowing circle around his head. And in case figuring out he's an angel wasn't bad enough, Raffi just uncovered the reason so many of the girls at St. Mary's act like they're possessed by demons...
