BEAUTY by Hubert & Kerascoet

When the repulsively ugly Coddie unintentionally saves a fairy from a spell, she does not understand the poisonous nature of the wish granted her by the fairy. The village folk no longer see her as repulsive and stinking of fish—they now perceive her as magnetically beautiful—which does not help her in her village.

A young local lord saves her, but it soon becomes apparent that Coddie’s destiny may be far greater than anyone ever imagined. Caustic and flamboyant, this fairy tale offers grownups an engrossing take on the nature of beauty.

MISS DON’T TOUCH ME by Hubert & Kerascoet

In 1930s Paris, the “Butcher of the Dances” is on the prowl for young, loose women, and local dominatrix Agatha suddenly turns up dead. Everyone assumes it was suicide, but her sister Blanche is convinced that the Butcher is responsible. She decides to take matters into her own hands, and in her pursuit, she ends up hired into a luxury house of call-girls. She soon becomes adept at certain practices, but she does not lose sight of her ultimate goal—to find her sister’s killer. A suspenseful spicy tale as only the French could so lightly get away with, this work is deceptive in its depth and realism.

THE LINDBERGH CHILD: AMERICA’S HERO AND THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY by Rick Geary

Geary’s Treasury of Victorian Murder moves onto the XXth century with one of the most sensationalistic cases ever!

All was well for Charles Lindbergh, after his daring solo crossing of the Atlantic. Fame and fortune came quickly as well as marriage into a wealthy family. But soon after they build themselves their dream home far from the madding crowd, tragedy strikes: their baby is abducted! Geary retraces all the different highly publicized events, blackmail notes, false and otherwise, as well as the string of colorful characters wanting to ‘help,’ some of which actually successfully snookered the beleaguered hero.

A fascinating story, of course without a fully satisfactory conclusion, replete with savory details and unsavory people as only Geary can masterfully relate with his understated dark humor.

Review Round-Up! STREET VIEW, DUNGEON, 101 OUTSTANDING GRAPHIC NOVELS & More!

STREET VIEW

Bleeding Cool has named Street View as their pick for the Eisner Award for Best Publication Design stating that, “This book, like a jellyfish, has no spine. And I think it’s such a unique book because of it! Two different stories sandwiched together by two hard covers, spread out like a painted accordion, definitely provides a different reading experience. While I can foresee complications if not handled properly, I think the design is superb, and Rabate knew what he was doing while presenting it as a “wordless play.””

101 OUTSTANDING GRAPHIC NOVELS

 

“An invaluable reference for creating personal graphic novel reading lists.”

Midwest Book Review

“The selections feel pretty representative of what you can find out there and there were quite a few I was not familiar with before.”

Sequential Tart

“Considering the staggering amount of collected comic art out there, this ongoing project deserves to be recognized.”

Blog Critics

DOG BUTTS AND LOVE. AND STUFF LIKE THAT.  AND CATS.

 

Bleeding Cool has named Dog Butts and Love. And Stuff Like That. And Cats. as their pick for the Eisner Award for Best Humor Publication stating that, “I first became aware of Benton’s comics through Reddit, where he would constantly be upvoted to the front page with his latest comics. From there I eagerly awaited every update, and kept myself amused by browsing his archives. To have a collection of his best works available in one collection is a huge victory for humanity, for he has a talent for illustrating some truly laugh out loud stuff that tickles everyone’s funny bones. The fact he doesn’t rely on one style of illustration keeps things fresh, and makes him a chameleon in comics.”

 

DUNGEON: TWILIGHT V. 4, THE END OF DUNGEON

“As with many of the Dungeon volumes, the two stories are illustrated by separate artists: Alfred and Mazan, neither of which was familiar to this reader. Their cartoony styles are close enough to not be distracting, though Mazan displays a slightly lighter hand. In a series like this, you need to be capable of drawing small comic character moments and fully-stuffed bloody battle sequences, and both artists are up to the task. Twisted heroic fantasy and funny animals – what’s not to like?”

Blog Critics

Review Round-Up!

DUNGEON: Twilight Vol. 4: High Septentrion & The End of Dungeon

“The most remarkable of this volume’s many strong points is the deft interlacing of satire with independent character and story development. Sly gags help to maintain the fresh take on Dungeons and Dragons fantasy environments while supporting the serious story…This volume is a strong recommendation to current fans, and the series represents a good next step for Adventure Time devotees looking for something equally snappy, but more adult.”

Foreword Reviews

Street View

There is a refreshing quality to this illustrated presentation that invites the viewer to ruminate over the actions of the players and to question the intentions of the participants. The stories can be viewed as morning events when read in one direction, whereas the opposite route portrays the evening proceedings. A range of emotions seem to foment as the viewer writes a script for the activities depending on the interpretation—is there love or hate, innocence or crime, fun or mischief? The scaffolding is there, but the script is in the mind of the viewer.

San Francisco Book Review

Dog Butts and Love. And Stuff Like That. And Cats.

“Best title I’ve seen all year.”

Unshelved

Zombillenium – Vol 1.: Gretchen, Vol. 2: Human Resources

51EnJSHS-+L

“Arthur de Pins has a crisp, clean style of drawing that I like, and these books looked like they would provide as much humor as horror…The plots are outlandish, of course, and play on many familiar horror tropes, but there was a lot of bloody, good fun in the telling.”

A Great Year For Us: Thank You! Happy 2015!

Dog Butts and Love

We’ve done well this year, most notably achieving 50% growth in the general trade (general bookstores, libraries, Amazon, and such)! We’re up significantly overall with such successes as Beauty and All Star being warmly received and going back to press rapidly but also with Bilal’s entry in the Louvre collection (we have some major names coming up for this series, stay tuned!) and Jim Benton’s snarky collection Dog Butts and Love. And Stuff like That. And Cats.

But we’ve also been building a reliable backlist, as we call it in publishing, with such perennial sellers as Zombillenium (#3 out next summer), The Discovery in Comics series (Religion is next, Fall ’15!), the comeback of Dungeon, the Louvre collection and many authors, European and American.

Well, goodbye to an excellent 2014 where, thanks to you, NBM turned a significant corner and is on the up and here’s to an even better 2015 for all!

Review Round-Up: ALL STAR, DOG BUTTS AND LOVE, ZOMBILLENIUM, “genuinely original and very entertaining”

Here’s what critics have been saying about our releases:

All Star by Jesse Lonergan

Nominated for the 2015 YALSA Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers

“I really enjoy the clean and simple lines of All Star’s art. Lonergan doesn’t spend time showing off how great he is by taking attention away from the story. Every line, every shadow, and every face servers a purpose and that purpose is to tell a story. And, the story is a thing of beauty.”

The Outhousers

Dog Butts and Love. And Stuff Like That. And Cats. Cartoons by Jim Benton

“The pieces in question range from single-panel gags to short sequential pieces, but the thing they share in common is the level of intelligence and cleverness on display. He is consistently darkly funny, often touching a chord with a tough truth at the heart of the cartoon…It’s a damn-near perfect encapsulation of the entitlement generation. The whole book is worth your time.”

Comics Waiting Room

“The humor is a mix of subtle and in your face, is frequently laugh out loud funny and often surprising.”

Pop Culture Guy

“It was marvelously entertaining, because Benton is obviously insane, or insanely creative…genuinely original and very entertaining, which was a welcome surprise.”

–  San Angelo Standard-Times

Zombillenium, vol.2 Human Resources by Arthur De Pins

“Fiendishly delightful, twisted, surprising, and even a little tragic.”

Midwest Book Review

“I love this series! A comedy paranormal spoof with a serious plot makes it total fun!”

It’s All Comic To Me
