NBM has a number of show premieres at the San Diego Comicon this year:
- First is Rick Geary’s The Lives of Sacco & Vanzetti, the latest in his Treasury of XXth Century Murder. Besides Geary signing the regular clothbound edition, there will also be an edition limited to only 25 copies and available only directly from NBM of which some copies will be available at this show. Geary is a nominee for an Eisner this year for his last Treasury tome: The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans.
- Kinky & Cosy, an outrageous collection of gags in a very striking hardcover with google eyes will be unveiled for the very first time, flown in from the printer! We’ve been featuring many strips of this highly subversive duo of 8 year old twins.
- A little paperback preview of Ernie Colon’s next exciting project, The Inner Sanctum, will be made available for a mere $1 as well as a show exclusive -identified as such- 25 copies signed and numbered by him for $5. The graphic novel, out by December, features adaptations of the old famous horror and mystery NBC radio show.
- Also, the very first few copies of the all-new 4th volume of Lewis Trondheim’s highly acclaimed Little Nothings will be available for sale. We’ve only a few copies to bring, sure to go fast!
Appearing at the booth besides Geary will be controversial cartoonist Ted Rall.
