This dramatic comic book miniseries brings supernatural terror to life: for a town in Alaska, prolonged periods of darkness means that vampires can openly kill and feed upon humans at almost any time. Their victims are rendered helpless by both the incapacitating darkness and the vampires’ vicious attacks - attacks that Ben Templesmith depicts with such gory immediacy that his illustrations could almost be crime scene photographs. Two year later, Angela hadn’t planned on returning to the house that bore silent witness to her son’s death, but then terrible things start happening to the community

Exposes the intricate balance of nature, and stresses the importance of conservation in maintaining this balance

This book is not new, but is still a very good overview of ecology (142 pages). The review is extensive without presenting minute details of formal research. Chapters covers the various levels and parts of the earth's functioning such as rocks, water, soil, forests, grasslands, evolution of life, life zones and much more. They lead toward a description of how the parts interact to form a functioning whole of the earth. It is this interactive functioning whole which is explained in very readable language. The book includes a section of pictures with explanations below each as both a pictorial presentation of the subject and a mini-review of it as well. It is a good read for those interested in learning how our planet "works" and the interdependencies which make this happen.
