The Truth is Worth Fighting For
As a child, James Bellyi watched his father die in the ring as payback for slurs he threw at his opponent. Today, James is a Mixed Martial Arts star at the top of his game, and one of the most popular fighters in the world…until he’s outed as gay in his title shot press conference.

Abandoned overnight by his training camp, his endorsements, his fans and his sport, to regain his title shot, Bellyi is forced to turn to the last person he ever wanted to see again: Xavier Mayne, a gay, once-fighter in his own right…and the man James watched kill his father.

A singular achievement from writers STEVE ORLANDO (Martian Manhunter, DEAD KINGS) and PHILLIP KENNEDY JOHNSON (Aquaman, Adventure Time, The Last Time), and artist AL MORGAN (Midnighter, Daredevil, Battlestar Galactica).

Graphic novels are not a genre, they’re a format that comes in all genres just like non-graphic books and movies, so there is something for everyone! Did you know the average age of graphic novel readers is 30?

POEM STOPS

Throughout April look for “Poem Stops” at the library and other locations throughout town. Each sign will feature one poem, with poems changing each week. We need your help to make this successful. We invite you to submit a poem to be featured. Email is best, but we will also accept paper copies. Your choice of poem will be formatted and laminated on an 11 x 17 sheet of paper and featured in one of the “Poem Stops” around town for everyone to enjoy.
Submit poems to: peachamlibrary@gmail.com
