Snow White: A Graphic Novel by Matt PhelanAward-winning graphic novelist Matt Phelan delivers a darkly stylized noir Snow White set against the backdrop of Depression-era Manhattan.
The scene: New York City, 1928. The dazzling lights cast shadows that grow ever darker as the glitzy prosperity of the Roaring Twenties screeches to a halt. Enter a cast of familiar characters: a young girl, Samantha White, returning after being sent away by her cruel stepmother, the Queen of the Follies, years earlier; her father, the King of Wall Street, who survives the stock market crash only to suffer a strange and sudden death; seven street urchins, brave protectors for a girl as pure as snow; and a mysterious stock ticker that holds the stepmother in its thrall, churning out ticker tape imprinted with the wicked words Another . . . More Beautiful . . . KILL. In a moody, cinematic new telling of a beloved fairy tale, extraordinary graphic novelist Matt Phelan captures the essence of classic film noir on the page—and draws a striking distinction between good and evil.

7 continents of the world: Facts you need to know
Originally the term "continent" was applied to any area of land, of any size, not separated by water, including islands. Concurrently, ever since the times of ancient Greek mariners and philosophers, the world was separated into "parts. Only in the late nineteenth century such parts of the earth came to be explicitly defined as continents. Today, continents are understood to be large, continuous, distinct masses of land , ideally but not necessarily separated by expanses of water. No required minimum size to qualify as "large" or "very large" has been defined, nor the requisite degree of physical separation. Continents are therefore defined by convention rather than a strict criteria. The criteria used can be of geographical, historical, cultural, anthropological, political, or even of philosophical nature.
However, depending on where you live, you may have learned that there are five, six, or even four continents.
