Image: American Way 10th Anniversary Edition SC  - DC Comics - Vertigo

Academy Award-winning author John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, Three Kings) presents an alternate U.S. history with the Civil Defense Corps, a team of superheroes, and their handlers, the FDAA (Federal Disaster Assistance Administration). The FDAA stages showdowns between superheroes and super-villains, but in reality they are little more than superpowered actors that front for the public. What will these manufactured superheroes do when real danger arrives at the door? Collects The American Way #1-8 in a new anniversary edition that includes bonus material!

Image: American Way: Those Above and Those Below #1  [2017] - DC Comics - Vertigo

It's been a decade since the Civil Defense Corps was exposed as a fraud created by the U.S. Government for propaganda purposes. While most of the heroes who survived the catastrophe have retired or disappeared, the New American still carries on, trying to keep communities safe amid the social turmoil of the 1970s. But with the nation split in two over civil rights and the changing political landscape, this isn't easy. Some of the American's former colleagues are on opposite sides of the law: Amber Waves joined a group of domestic terrorists, while Missy, a.k.a. Ole Miss, has thrown her hat into the political ring. As the ground shifts beneath his feet and new threats arise, which side will the American choose? This sequel to the hit miniseries by the original team of writer John Ridley (Oscar-winning screenwriter of 12 Years a Slave and creator of TV's American Crime) and artist Georges Jeanty (Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight, Serenity: No Power in the Verse) moves the story forward in history, factoring in how real-life events might be affected by the presence of superheroes, and how those events change the heroes in turn.

Image: American Way: Those Above and Those Below #2  [2017] - DC Comics - Vertigo

The conflict with political radicals that took one man's life sits heavy with Jason. Accusations that, by continuing to be the superhero the American, he's become a pawn for the government have taken on a new sharpness as the Civil Rights movement of the 1970s gains an added urgency. This call to do what's right is one that his former ally Amber Waves has already answered by taking matters into her own hands and using her powers to protest injustice-and she's already paying the deadly cost as the police and Federal agents attack her where she lives. The sequel to the hit comics series continues, crafted by writer John Ridley (TV's American Crime and Guerrilla).

Civil unrest intensifies following the radical anti-establishment violence and the attempted assassination of Missy Devereaux. Jason is pushed to balance his allegiances and assess his priorities as he tracks Missy's superhuman assailant and federal authorities hone in on Amber's cell. Radically unafraid of the looming threat, Amber's commitment to the cause inches closer to a death wish-and a devastating betrayal may grant it.

The American is faced with a final choice: He can defeat and arrest his new foe, or he can join the young man with powers as incendiary as his agenda and fight for civil justice. What if choosing law and order means perpetuating decades of oppression? Meanwhile, Ole Miss faces her own crossroads. It's the conclusion of the acclaimed miniseries from Oscar-winning writer John Ridley that's sure to keep readers talking for a long time to come.

Image: Other History of the DC Universe #2 - DC - Black Label

Before the New Teen Titans, there were the original Teen Titans. In the tumultuous 1970s, in an America that was very different than today but in many ways all too familiar, the trials and tribulations of these young heroes were witnessed by two of DC's first Black superheroes: Karen Beecher-Duncan, better known as Bumblebee, and Mal Duncan-even if their versions of events are often at odds. And across that decade, they fought for their seats at the Titans' table while joining the battle against injustice. ? The long-awaited miniseries written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, Let It Fall) and beautifully illustrated by Giussepi Camuncoli and Andrea Cucchi continues to look at the mythology of the DC Universe as seen through the prism of DC Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups.
