TREASURY OF XXTH CENTURY MURDER LOVERS’ LANE: The Hall-Mills Mystery
By Rick Geary
New Brunswick, New Jersey, Thursday, September 14, 1922.
Reverend Hall and Mrs. Eleanor Mills take a stroll in the town’s park in the evening. Shots are heard. 2 days later, their bodies are found laying on the ground very neatly next to each other with her hand on his thigh, love letters strewn around them, the scarf on her neck covering up the deep bloody slit in it. Reverend Hall, himself married, was in an open secret of an affair with Mrs. Mills, a married woman of his choir.
The perfect ingredients for a juicy scandal and fascinating investigation which the nation’s press hungrily devours. Alas, no clues or evidence are sufficient to make an indictment stick.
Was it suicide? A jealous rival? The case reopens again 4 years later as new information is brought to light, indicting the reverend’s wife but she is an upstanding member of her community, denying to the last that her husband had any affair…
TAXES, THE TEA PARTY, AND THOSE REVOLTING REBELS: A History In Comics of the American Revolution
By Stan Mack
Here’s the fun way to learn all about the Birth of the United States: in comics!
“A cartoonist de-mythologizes the Founding Fathers and makes them more ‘like us’”says the New York Times.
Uncannily relevant to today’’s world. Learn about the original revolt against taxes: the Boston Tea Party, and the original Occupy movement: the Rebels in revolt against the status quo. A whimsical and informative pictorial history featuring a chubby, insecure King George III, rebellious and misunderstood colonists, loudmouthed and insensitive aristocrats, and more.
Updated from the original Stan Mack’s Real Life American Revolution published by Avon books in 1994.
