With a new costume and a new attitude, Diana Prince fights crime like never before! These adventures are written by such comics luminaries as Dennis O'Neil, Robert Kanigher, Mike Sekowsky and more, and are back in a series of new trade paperback editions.

In 1835, New York newspaper The Sun published a series of six articles declaring the discovery of life--and even civilization--on the Moon, which the paper attributed to the famous contemporary astronomer Sir John Herschel. According to the Sun, the lunar inhabitants included unicorns, bison, bipedal tail-less beavers, and intelligent humanoids with bat-like wings.

Life on the Moon is a full-length graphic novel capturing this mythical world. Creator Robert Grossman said the book is set in a time when "many of the signal achievements of the 19th Century still lay well in the future, Andrew Jackson was president, the steamboat was the summit of technology, and news traveled slowly." The unfettered novel includes real historical figures such as P.T. Barnum, Jean Jacques Audubon, Lorenzo Da Ponte, Charles Goodyear, and Edgar Allan Poe. Grossman stated that, "Life on the Moon is meant to be at least partly funny, and has a rip-roaring sci-fi ending." Grossman concluded, "I read somewhere that William Randolph Hearst insisted that everything he produced had: Tears, laughs, loves, and thrills. Life on the Moon has all that and more." 

In this next graphic novel chapter, the mayor of Keystone asks the Flash to relocate himself away from Keystone City -- but trouble still manages to find the Fastest Man Alive in his new home of Santa Marta. First, the Flash saves a presidential candidate from the Top, a member of the Rogues. The, Mr. Frost strikes -- and his illusions threaten to destroy both the Flash and his new home. And when word spreads that the Flash has moved to a new city, several of his greatest foes show up to cause trouble, including the earthquake causing Major Disaster!
