THE LIBRARY MULE OF CORDOBA HC, written by Wilfrid Lupano, art by Leonard Chemineau · SRP: $24.99 · 264 Pages · ISBN: 978-1684972791 · Available May 29th 

The Caliphate has been blessed with a period of peace, culture, and science for nearly sixty years. The Caliph Abd al-Rahman III and his son al-Hakam II made Cordoba the Western capital of learning. But al-Hakam II dies young, and his son is only ten years old.

One of his viziers, Amir, seizes the opportunity to take power. Radical clergymen, in exchange for their support of the illegitimate pretender, want to see the 400,000 books in Cordoba’s library burn!

The night before the biggest bonfire ever, the head librarian, a chubby eunuch named Tarid, gathers up all the books he can and loads them onto the back of a passing mule. He takes off in the hopes of saving what he can of universal knowledge.  Joined by a young scribe and a former apprentice who went on to become a thief and vagabond, Tarid and his lazy, over-burdened mule set out on a madcap adventure: crossing nearly all of Spain with mercenaries in hot pursuit. The Library Mule of Cordoba is a timely and entertaining fable about censorship, book banning and freedom of knowledge.

In “14,” a man who mysteriously discovers a 13th floor in his building and finds himself in the middle of a storytelling session among different mythological creatures of Philippine folklore. Together with a partying crowd of supernatural beings, he listens to stories narrated by creatures such as the Manananggal, Diwata, Tikbalang, Kapre, Tiyanak, and even by a White Lady and a Doppelganger.
