Who Is AC? GN written by Hope Larson

As Lin starts to get a handle on her new abilities (while still observing her curfew!), she realizes she has to go head-to-head with a nefarious villain who spreads his influence through binary code. And as if that weren’t enough, a teen blogger has dubbed her an “anonymous coward!” Can Lin detect the cyber-criminal’s vulnerability, save the day, and restore her reputation? Available in Hardcover and Softcover editions.

Collection of the Week
The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger - The Battle of Tull TP, co-written by Robin Furth
Roland Deschain, last of the gunslingers, continues searching for the Man in Black. Instead, he finds Tull, last stop of civilization - a town of devil grass, desert sand and despair. A town of lost souls, including Allie, the once-pretty barmaid whose encounter with the Man in Black left her saddled with a fearsome, cursed secret. Tull may seem to be on the very edge of the world, with nothing past the horizon but a steep fall to oblivion, but Roland believes otherwise: that beyond Tull lies a hidden truth that means everything to the fate of Mid-World. The Man in Black holds the key to that mystery, and Roland is going to keep following him - even through a trap set in Tull - to unlock it. Collecting DARK TOWER: THE GUNSLINGER - THE BATTLE OF TULL #1-5.
