NBM Celebrates Its 40th Anniversary With Appearances and Signings

As we head toward the end of 2017, NBM Graphic Novels is continuing to celebrate its 40th Anniversary with appearances at a number of shows with special guests in attendance. At all convention appearances there will be a selection of our latest titles on hand available for purchase.

Panel: Filling In The Pieces: Comics Biography
White Flint Auditorium 9/16 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
When doing a comics biography, how do cartoonists approach the material they have at hand? For Box Brown, who did a biography of Andre the Giant, he struggled to find material that might reveal the wrestler’s inner life. Anais Depommier had to sift through a mountain of material for her biography of Jean-Paul Sartre, a task made all the more difficult considering how much the philosopher wrote about himself. Luke Howard had to deal with a historically and racially sensitive topic in ragtime creator Ernest Hogan. Moderator Chris Mautner will lead the discussion. Anais Depommier appears courtesy of a grant by The Cultural Services of the French Embassy.

PRIDE lives!

Copies of Pride Of The Decent Man are beginning to arrive in the hands of readers. This is feels like the end of something, but also the beginning of another stage – promotion!

It’s actually been two years (!) since sending off the initial short proposal for the book, and now it’s done, real, and ready to be (hopefully) enjoyed by the public.

I’ll be making my first two appearances in support of PRIDE soon at the Small Press Expo in Maryland and the Brooklyn Book Festival in NYC. Details to come very soon!

I’m also posting a new tour poster image I’ve got with some other dates as well. More are being added soon.

Pride Of The Decent Man is now available through many fine booksellers.

For more info, go here.

Thanks again – and thanks for reading.

T.J.

Sandrine Revel, Author of ‘Glenn Gould: A Life Off Tempo’, Prepares for North American Tour

revel

Prolific creator and Angoulême International Comics Festival award winner Sandrine Revel will be making several appearances to support the English release of her book, Glenn Gould: A Life Off Tempo from NBM Graphic Novels.  She previously has won the French Artémisia award which recognizes female comic creators for the French release of Glenn Gould.

Glenn Gould was a Canadian pianist, a child genius who became a worldwide superstar of classical music remembered for, among others, his almost revolutionary interpretations of Bach. This graphic novel biography seeks to understand the eccentric personality behind the persona. Who is the mysterious Glenn Gould? Why did he abruptly end his career as a performing musician?  Why did he become one of the very first of his peers to disappear from the public eye like J.D. Salinger?  Sandrine Revel delves into the life of Gould with hand painted illustrations and the viewpoint of an adoring fan.

2017 marks a number of important anniversaries for Gould: the 85th of his birth and 35th of his death but also the 60th of his legendary tour of Russia, a first for a Western artist, and of his debuts with the world’s leading orchestras.

Her many stops include the PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature 2017, the Toronto Comics Arts Festival and at the Vancouver Comics Art Festival.

-1

32522553540_0fedbaa93b_b

 

About LOOK
Artie is a droid programmed to endlessly perform a single task left in a world abandoned by humans. He is starting to wonder what meaning his task has. But when he and his only friend, Owen, a robotic bird, cast aside the only lives they’ve ever known in search of a brighter future, they encounter others that want nothing but to hold tight to the past. Join Artie the Robot and Owen the Vulture for a lighthearted sci-fi adventure as they journey far and wide for the answer to one of life’s greatest questions: “why are we here?”

Also in attendance on behalf of our sister company, Papercutz is Harvey Award winner Jessica Abel who will be signing copies of her new series, Trish Trash, Roller Girl of Mars and Deb Lucke, creator of the Lunch Witch series.

About Trish Trash, Roller Girl of Mars
200 years from now, Trish “Trash” Nupindju lives on the newly inhabited Mars, whose settlers live under harsh and ruthless conditions. Trish dreams of only one thing: becoming a hoverderby star. It seems like making the professional derby team is the only way to escape a future of poverty on her parents’ farm. But, what happens when a half-dead Martian shows up on her doorstep and changes everything? Find out in the first volume of the new science fiction trilogy by acclaimed creator Jessica Abel.

About The Lunch Witch
For generations and generations, the women of Grunhilda’s family have stirred up trouble in a big, black pot. Grunhilda inherits her famous ancestors’ recipes and cauldron, but no one believes in magic anymore. Despite the fact that Grunhilda’s only useful skill is cooking up potfuls of foul brew, she finds a job listing that might suit her: lunch lady. She delights in scaring the kids until she meets Madison, a girl with thick glasses and unfinished homework who doesn’t fit in. The two outsiders recognize each other. Madison needs help at school and at home, but helping people goes against everything Grunhilda’s believes in as a witch! Will this girl be able to thaw the Lunch Witch’s icy heart? Or will Grunhilda turn her back on a kindred spirit?

NBM will also be bringing its latest graphic novels: Paco Roca’s Lighthouse, Rick Geary’s Black Dahlia, the acclaimed bios of Glenn Gould, Thoreau and others, and Cyril Pedrosa’s amazing and absorbing Equinoxes.

Jon, Jessica and Deb will be appearing at the NBM Table (D147, D148) throughout the weekend.
