Batman’s protégés get to have amazing adventures most children can only dream of, even if they risk their lives every time they put on the cowl. But just because these kids have to grow up to do their jobs, doesn’t mean they’ve lost the desire to play. Don’t be surprised if the next time you look up in Gotham you see some small, caped silhouettes chasing each other across the rooftops! Our Gotham Rooftop Q-Master diorama features the Dark Knight’s collective of Robins and Batgirl as they leap from chimney to chimney, enjoying the challenge of trying to beat one another as they race across the skyline. Tim Drake (Red Robin), Damian Wayne (Robin), Dick Grayson (Nightwing) and Barbara Gordon (Batgirl) are perfectly presented as they put their heroic skills to the test on a detailed rooftop setting. And, of course, Batgirl leads the pack, raising her arms in triumph at the roof’s edge. Q-Master dioramas are a revolution in premium collectibles: Mixing both stylized and realistic elements in a massive display, these dioramas have both style and substance, displaying stories you won’t see anywhere else in exquisitely-detailed sculpts and paint, in material that is both substantial and durable. Gotham Rooftop is cast in Everstone™, a proprietary high-temperature polymer developed by QMx. Everstone™ offers discerning collectors everything they require in a high-quality collectible: fantastic durability, solid weight, and precisely-crafted details that resist both fading and fracture. Everstone™ is everything traditional polystone statues are not – strong yet pliable with the ability to capture minute details in costumes, scenery and action. As with all Q-Master dioramas, Gotham Rooftop is a limited edition piece and features a numbered Certificate of Authenticity signed by its creator, QMx Creative Director Mohammad Haque. It will ship in a specially designed collector’s box to perfectly protect the diorama in transit.

This "richly appointed and generously portrayed" (Kirkus Reviews) debut novel tells the story of a WASPy, old-Boston family coming face-to-face with an America much larger than the one it was born in. Caroline Dunlap has written off the insular world of the Boston deb parties, golf club luaus, and WASP weddings that she grew up with. But when she reluctantly returns home after her college graduation, she finds that not everything is quite as predictable, or protected, as she had imagined. Her father, the eccentric, puritanical Jack Dunlap, is carrying on stoically after the breakup of his marriage, but he can't stop thinking of Rosita, the family housekeeper he fired almost six months ago. Caroline's little brother, Eliot, is working on a giant papier-mâche diorama of their town - or is he hatching a plan of larger proportions? As the real reason for Rosita's departure is revealed, the novel culminates in a series of events that assault the fragile, sheltered, and arguably obsolete world of the Dunlaps. Opening a window into a family's repressed desires and fears, The Hazards of Good Breeding is a startlingly perceptive comedy of manners that heralds a new writer of dazzling talent. 1.

Kate Marino knows very well that home is where her heart is, and if she had any say in the matter, her heart would stay put in Big Red. The old, rambling farmhouse has withstood the test of time with her family, but now Kate's parents have decided to sell it from under her feet. The preventative solution: sabotage the realtor's tours with the help of best friends and a plan that has maximum stinkage potential. The back-up plan: hang on to at least a little bit of life at Big Red by creating shoebox dioramas of each room. But even with a full-scale assault, will her mission be a success? And if not, what will the diorama of Kate's future look like? With a keen eye for capturing the moments that matter, acclaimed author Tara Altebrando explores the pain,and promise,of letting go.
