              Bad Luck Chuck
               

              Bad Luck Chuck (PDF ebook)

              By Gwenn, Lela

              Cursed at birth with extraordinary bad luck, Charlene "Chuck" Manchester provides disaster where someone else can profit. Got a failing business? For a price Chuck will make sure you collect on that insurance policy, without ever getting your own hands dirty. But when a crime ...boss hires her to take out an evangelical cult, things don't go as planned. Now the mob boss, the cult leader, and a dogged insurance-fraud investigator all come for her at once. Everything that could go wrong does--and only about half of it by accident. A dangerous liaison with the crime boss's daughter ups the stakes fatally for Chuck, as the curse she's run from her whole life finally catches up to her. Lela Gwenn brings a fresh voice to comics with this twisty noir, full of outlaws who aren't so much wise guys as they are smart asses. Matthew Dow Smith, best known for a long run on IDW's X-Files, brings that weird detective vibe, placing the oddball villains and anti-heroes in a grounded world taking us from the bad side of town, through shadowy office spaces reminiscent of Sam Spade, to a fiery revival tent and the splendor of a Tibetan abbey. Chuck will need more than a rabbit's foot to get through this. Collects Bad Luck Chuck #1-4.

              New Zealand continues to mine, burn and export coal, despite the fact that, globally, coal is the single biggest contributor to ocean acidification and to the ongoing climate emergency. But what will the future bring? Coal has played an important part in New Zealand's history,... but plans for the expansion of mining now trigger battles whose long-term outcomes are impossible to predict. 'Fuelling Dissension' weaves together the historical, political, social, economic and environmental strands that underlie the struggle between coal mining and conservation. At the same time, this colourfully-illustrated book clearly and concisely explains the basic facts about coal - its formation, chemistry and uses - and provides useful insights into the coal industry. How can we sever our ties with this most polluting of fossil fuels as we head towards a low carbon future? There are no simple answers - but no time for delay.

              The ghosts of an old war came back to haunt 14-year-old George Williamson, in the shape of three American Flight Sergeants, who were known to members of his New Zealand family long ago. But, rather than being ghosts, the 'Taranaki Zombies' are actually very real. Having been the ...subject of experimentation at the height of the 1940s Pacific War, these men turn up again 30 years later, this time as near-indestructable 'Zombies', living in the vast wilderness of the Egmont National Park. They look to be still aged in their early twenties but must have more of the rare metal which has prolonged their unnatural existence. Can George and his motorcycle-riding companions return to an old World War II bunker to obtain what the 'Zombies' need? The story is illustrated with archival photographs and loosely based on true events.
