The Delinquents

James Asmus

Quantum and Woody are the world’s worst superhero team. Archer & Armstrong are a mismatched pair of conspiracy-busting adventurers. When a mysterious force collides these ill-suited and irresponsible “heroes” for a cross-country race through the darkest corners of American mythology, all hell is bound to break loose. Can two busted pairs become four of a kind in time to defeat the Hobo King, save the day, and make it back home in time for happy hour? Let’s hope so...’cause these guys make a really, really bad team. (And you don’t even want to know about the goat.) It's an all-new superhero joyride from fan-favorite writers James Asmus (Quantum and Woody) and Fred Van Lente (Archer & Armstrong) and heat-seeking artist Kano (Quantum and Woody, Immortal Iron Fist), colliding Quantum and Woody and Archer & Armstrong for the world's most disastrous team-up adventure! Collecting The Delinquents #1–4.

Madras (Images of America)

Steve Lent

The area where Madras now stands was originally known as “The Basin.” Sheep and cattle operators first utilized the site, where Willow Creek also flows, as a grazing zone. The Basin area was eventually settled by homesteaders in the late 1880s, and the location of present-day Madras is situated on the land of four early farmhouses. Madras was incorporated on March 2, 1910, and became a commercial center with the arrival of railroads in 1911, earning the nickname “Gateway to Central Oregon.” With the arrival of irrigation water from the Deschutes River by means of the North Unit Project in 1946, intensive farming began in the surrounding areas, kicking off a new era in Madras.

Prineville (OR) (Images of America)

Early in 1868, Francis “Barney” Prine arrived in the Crooked River Valley of Central Oregon, established a blacksmith shop made of logs, and dispensed spirits from the back of the cabin. Prine saw the potential for development and industry along the lush banks of Crooked River and Ochoco Creek, and as more and more settlers arrived, the post office of Prine was established in 1871. The community soon emerged as a major commercial center for Central Oregon, one of the last frontiers in the state. In fact, Prineville boasts the only remaining city-owned railroad to operate in the United States. The decline of the timber industry led to hard times, but after Les Schwab established the headquarters of his emerging tire empire in Prineville, the city became one of the burgeoning communities in the Northwest.

Crook County (Images of America)

Steve Lent

Crook County, Oregon, is located in the heart of the state and was created from Wasco County on October 24, 1882. The original Crook County included what is now Jefferson, Deschutes, Crook, and part of Wheeler Counties. The region was among the last frontiers to be settled in Oregon. The county experienced some violent times with the rise of a vigilante organization that took the law into its own hands and, later, the infamous Sheep and Cattle Wars that pitted cattlemen against sheep men until government control of grazing on public lands was introduced. Although there were turbulent times, the county mostly evolved into a thriving ranching, farming, and lumber-dominated economy. The perseverance of hearty pioneers forged the frontier into a prosperous and socially enriched region.

Time Wearing Out Memory: Schoharie County

Susan Daley

These elegant and evocative photographs portray the oldest continuously farmed county in New York as it was and and as it is today.

Abandoned countryside and discarded buildings stand as silent memorials to the once-prosperous farming community of Schoharie County, New York. With an unique eye for the aesthetics of age, acclaimed photographers Steve Gross and Susan Daley honor this beautiful, troubled landscape in a collection of more than one hundred black-and-white photographs. Their work honors a legacy both precarious and perpetual, dotted with crumbling houses and barns, fallow fields and overrun woods.Novelist Jeffrey Lent writes, "In an America that often seems confused and uncertain of its future at this period in our history, Steve Gross and Susan Daley offer something quietly optimistic―the idea that we can, if we push through the dense covering foliage, arrive again at heightened expectations of ourselves. 104 duotone photographs
