Covering the early years of , Hip Hop has made a big transition from the parks and rec rooms to downtown clubs and vinyl records. The performers make moves to separate themselves from the paying customers by dressing more and more flamboyant until a young group called RUN-DMC comes on the scene to take things back to the streets. Hip Hop Family Tree, Vol. Book 4 charts the rise of Dr. Hitman, Vol. On the back streets of Gotham City, ex-military operative Tommy Monaghan has set himself up as a hired gun. Surrounded by an odd assortment of friends and allies, the Hitman with a heart must deal with personal conflicts over honor and morals as he makes a living with a gun.

But even with the telepathic ability to read his targets' minds, he still finds himself well over his head when he runs into some of Gotham's most notorious citizens such as the Demon, the Joker, and the Dark Knight himself, the Batman. Plus, a vindictive mob boss from his past puts a contract out on Tommy. With his friends caught in the crossfire, he must find a way to take out the hired assassin and exact retribution against the mafia head.

But even with his extrarodinary powers, the Hitman may find that a trained killer and a mob army is just too much for one man. In the third volume of the series, Tommy's talents are tested as he faces off against Western outlaws and an army of zombie sea animals. Also included in this book is a hilarious confrontation with Green Lantern, which teaches the Spandex-clad super hero a lesson about taking on a street-smart hit man from the back streets of Gotham City. This book collects the saturnine Brunetti's vast majority of morally questionable, aesthetically confused - and absolutely gut-busting - 'gag' cartoons.

Culled mostly from out-of-print work and other anthologies, the contents are discreetly presented in an uninviting, funereal package of unglamorous black and white. Holy Terror chronicles this desperate and brutal quest of a hero as he is forced to run down an army of murderous zealots in order to stop a crime against humanity. Empire City is in peril…and a whole lot of folks need killing! Happiness is Classic Peanuts! These collector's editions perfectly recreate the original look and feel of the best-loved Peanuts books—their paper, their ink, even their lamination.

And of course, the heartwarming content that charmed the world, sold millions, and launched the career of Charles M. Schulz remains untouched. On every spread there's a tiny tidbit of wisdom from one of the gang, along with one of Schulz's irresistible drawings. It's a trip down memory lane that every Peanuts fan will cherish.
