Brilliant anime director Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Paranoia Agent, Tokyo Godfathers, Millennium Actress, Perfect Blue) died tragically young in 2010 at the age of forty-six. But before he became a director, he was a manga artist, and Dark Horse is honored to remember Kon with the release of Satoshi Kon’s OPUS,an omnibus collection of a two-volume manga from 1996, created by Kon on the eve of his first film. OPUS contains the mastery of both realism and surrealism that would make Kon famous in Perfect Blue,as a manga artist planning a shocking surprise ending to his story gets literally pulled into his own work—to face for himself what he had planned for his characters! OPUS is Kon's metafictional tale of Chikara Nagai, a creator under pressure to finish his latest graphic novel, Resonance, who finds that the harshest critic of the shock ending he's got planned is the character who'll have to die in it! Nagai's stregths and weaknesses as a creator are tested beyond their limits as his present and his past, and the worlds of the manga and of reality, become the levels of a maze he may never escape... let alone get a chance to resolve the story!

Compact Indonesian, a stand-alone 10-on (5 hours) program, teaches beginning language strategies for essential communication and traveling needs, plus an introduction to reading. HEAR IT, LEARN IT, SPEAK IT® What is the Pimsleur® difference? The Pimsleur Method provides the most effective language-learning program ever developed. The Pimsleur Method gives you quick command of Indonesian structure without tedious drills. Learning to speak Indonesian can actually be enjoyable and rewarding. The key reason most people struggle with new languages is that they aren't given proper instruction, only bits and pieces of a language. Other language programs sell only pieces -- dictionaries; grammar books and instructions; lists of hundreds or even thousands of words and definitions; audios containing use drills. They leave it to you to assemble these pieces as you try to speak. Pimsleur enables you to spend your time learning to speak the language rather than just studying its parts. When you were learning English, could you speak before you knew how to conjugate verbs? Of course you could. That same learning process is what Pimsleur replicates. Pimsleur presents the whole language as one integrated piece so you can succeed. With Pimsleur you get: • Grammar and vocabulary taught together in everyday conversation, • Interactive audio-only instruction that teaches spoken language organically, • The flexibility to learn anytime, anywhere, • 30-minute ons designed to optimize the amount of language you can learn in one sitting. Millions of people have used Pimsleur to gain real conversational skills in new languages quickly and easily, wherever and whenever -- without books, written exercises, or drills.
El indie es un estilo musical de los 90 que, ya bien entrado el siglo XXI, se ha convertido en una forma de vida. Ser indie es vivir de manera relajada, amar la naturaleza a la vez que las nuevas tecnologías, identificarse con lo retro y ser un adicto a los festivales.
En estas páginas encontraremos todos los iconos que conforman la cultura de los indie –música, ropa, arte, literatura…– pasados por el filtro de las explosivas ilustraciones de Ricardo Cavolo y del sentido del humor de Mario Suárez.
