A Library Journal selection, Best Graphic Novels of 2011

As a leading researcher at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Laura Regan is one of the world’s foremost authorities on viral and bacteriological study. Having dedicated her career to halting the spread of infectious disease, she has always considered herself one of the good people. But when her research partner is murdered and Laura is blamed for the crime, she finds herself at the heart of a vast and deadly conspiracy. Aided by three rogue federal agents who believe the government is behind the frame-up, Laura must evade law enforcement, mercenaries, and a team of cyber-detectives who know more about her life than she does—all while trying to expose a sinister plot that will impact the lives of every American.

Set in the Orwellian present, The Homeland Directive confronts one of the vital questions of our time: In an era when technology can either doom or save us, is it possible for personal privacy and national security to coexist?
“The Homeland Directive is a tight, suspenseful technothriller. . . .
A great, paranoid read for the modern age.” 
— Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing
“In exploring the nature of the relation between the individual, society and the state, one would anticipate The Homeland Directive to elevate both the thriller genre and the comics medium. Venditti delivers admirably on both counts.” — Dr. shathley Q, PopMatters
“Venditti’s cat-mouse thriller demands edge-of-your-seat attention while raising serious questions about terrorism, personal privacy, and government responsibility . . . highly recommended for teen and adult collections.” — Library Journal

A New York Times bestseller

The year is 2054, and life is reduced to a data feed. The fusing of virtual reality and cybernetics has ushered in the era of the personal surrogate, android substitutes that let users interact with the world without ever leaving their homes. It’s a perfect world, and it’s up to Detectives Harvey Greer and Pete Ford of the Metro Police Department to keep it that way. But to do so they’ll need to stop a techno-terrorist bent on returning society to a time when people lived their lives instead of merely experiencing them.

The Surrogates is a story about progress and whether there exists a tipping point at which technological advancement will stop enhancing and start hindering our lives. It is also a commentary on identity, the Western obsession with physical appearance, and the growing trend to use science as a means of providing consumers with beauty on demand.
This volume collects all five issues of the acclaimed comic book series. Packed with bonus content, inside you will find never-before-seen sketches and artwork, as well as commentary from the creative team that brought this breakout story to the page.
“An absolutely fascinating piece of work—heartfelt and thoughtful.”   — Fantasy & Science Fiction

The Surrogates: Flesh and Bone
with Brett Weldele

In a dark downtown alley in Central Georgia Metropolis, a juvenile prank goes too far and a homeless man is killed. When the ensuing investigation reveals that the attackers aren’t who they appeared to be, justice depends on the testimony of a single witness — a street snitch with a history of providing information to a uniformed cop named Harvey Greer. Harvey is placed on special assignment to track down the informant, but others have their own designs, including a wealthy socialite and an ex-con turned religious leader known to his followers as The Prophet. As days pass and anger among the anti-surrogate population grows, the city stands on a razor’s edge. Will punishment be exacted in a courtroom… or on the streets? 

Set fifteen years prior to the events of the first volume, The Surrogates: Flesh and Bone sheds light on the past that binds the cast together. From the streets of Central Georgia Metropolis to the boardroom of Virtual Self, Inc., it takes us on a journey through a city struggling to come to grips with its present. As much a cautionary tale as a story of suspense, this book reminds us that tomorrow will be determined by the choices we make today.
“Flesh and Bone reads like Philip K. Dick writing an episode of The Wire . . . a smart, compelling and adult work asking questions with no easy answers.” — io9
“Venditti and Weldele manage to craft an exciting, futuristic crime story while composing a profound, morally complex dialectic. . . . It takes a graphic novel about robots to find out what it means to be human.” — Dan Trachtenberg, The Totally Rad Show

The Lightning Thief: The Graphic Novel
with Attila Futaki and Jose Villarrubia
A New York Times bestseller

The first book in the blockbuster best-selling series . . . like you’ve never seen it before.

Mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking out of the pages of twelve-year-old Percy Jackson’s textbooks and into his life. And worse, he’s angered a few of them. Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Now, he and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus’s stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus.
Series creator Rick Riordan joins forces with some of the biggest names in the comic book industry to tell the story of a boy who must unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.
“Succeeds in spectacular fashion. Venditti forges an adaptation that does justice not simply to Riordan’s story but works perfectly as a graphic novel.” — Publishers Weekly
“Both ardent followers of Riordan’s books and those new to the series will not be disappointed.” — School Library Journal
