Samantha Adams

Samantha "Sam" Adams is an audiobook addict. She is blind, and for many years worked 60 hours a week as a lawyer while single parenting. During that time, she had no time to read. Now, she no longer works long weeks and her child is a teenager with a busy life that doesn’t always include her; so she has rediscovered a long-abandoned love of reading. She probably reads at least one audiobook a week, and sometimes more. She has an honors degree in English literature from Canada and is a Canadian transplant living in Northern California. 

Bill Zimmerman has created something wonderful --- Makebeliefscomix.com, a website with a clear message: nurture children's creativity through family fun.

Book

Teaser

Imagine a world where everyone has superpowers. That is, except you. You are the same old turgid, miserable, lonely loser you've always been. 

But when it comes to superpowers, apparently you can indeed have too much of a good thing. With everyone able to destroy tower blocks with a single punch, any minor fracas escalates into a city-leveling combat, and the world is now in ruins as terrorism and war threaten the very survival of the planet.  

What's needed is a return to normality, to devolve back from Superhuman to just human --- and there's only one man for the job: down-at-heal, divorced New York plumber, Michael Fisher.

75 Years of Marvel

The tights and capes may have long left the Javits Center, but two weeks after New York Comic Con, we at GraphicNovelReporter are still abuzz with all we saw and learned. Our crack team of reviewers and interns sped from panel to panel like the Flash on a good day, takings notes in copious quantities. Here are some of the big things we learned.

Linda Johnson

Linda Johnson is a long time Bookreporter devotee. Her mother was always trying to get her outside, but she preferred reading in her bedroom. She is a retired teacher and former newspaper columnist (she hoped she paid homage to Erma Bombeck). Now she works very part-time in a small university library. She’s active with her Friends of the Library chapter, including overseeing at least five years of their biannual book sale.
