Being solicited in comics stores now for shipping in January: Lewis Trondheim’s next Little Nothings!
Vol. 3: “Uneasy Happiness”
Trondheim’s comics blog’s next collection of his popular musings on the every day ironies of life, his little anxieties, funny observations while on travel, his way of finding some cloud over the brightest sunshine, his obsessive hypochondria and other oh-so-easy-to-relate-to nerdy preoccupations. As he says himself, it’s whole lotta not much. And people are lovin’ it:
“Fans of James Kochalka’s American Elf will find he has an international soulmate in Lewis Trondheim.” –The Onion
“If this isn’t the best thing that NBM has ever published in its 30 years of making graphic albums available to the English-language market, it’s one of the top three.”
–Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter.

While we’re at it, you might like to know what our sister company, Papercutz is up to this month: from Classics Illustrated ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ as adapted by Steven Grant and Dan Spiegle:
Classics Illustrated #8
The Count of Monte Cristo
By Alexander Dumas
Adapted by Steven Grant
Dan Spiegle, artist
Alexander Dumas’s The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure story at heart, making Steven Grant and Dan Spiegle excellent choices to adapt this action-packed tale, which translates wonderfully to comics form. Edmond Dantes, a fugitive wrongfully accused of a crime and betrayed by a rival, escapes from prison to embark on a search for treasure. Eventually, Dantes returns to France after creating the new identity of the Count of Monte Cristo in order to exact vengeance on his betrayer. A whirlwind adventure for any young child who follows this epic tale, Grant and Spiegle capture the excitement of this classic story that has remained a best-seller for over a hundred years.
