Graphic Novel Reporter puts 4 NBM books in Best of Summer

John Hogan over at GNR must like us, we guess, as he’s put most of our summer output on their Hottest Graphic Novels for the Summer list. That includes Networked: Carabella on the Run, The Broadcast, The Axe-Man of New Orleans and even includes Noe’s latest salacious (and indeed bitingly funny) Pin-Up Artist from NBM’s Eurotica imprint (sorry can’t link here as you need to be over 18 but look at Coming Up in Eurotica in July)!

But then again that may be just because we’re that good.

July: Badger/Jones: Carabella on the Run!

An action-packed suspenseful graphic novel on the hot topic of privacy in a world dominated by the internet and mobile connection is NBM ‘s star graphic novel in July being solicited in comics stores now:

NETWORKED: CARABELLA ON THE RUN
Mark BADGER, Gerard JONES
Some alien invasions are loud and bloody…some are quiet and friendly. The blue-skinned girl named Carabella thinks she’s escaping the oppression of her own world, but instead she’s exposing the earth to an invasion so soft and friendly that everyone welcomes it—until Carabella herself sees what’s happening and tries to make someone, anyone see that our websites, our cell phones, and even our shoes (yes, shoes) are being used to steal first the privacy and then the freedom of everyone on earth.
6×9, 128pp., full color trade paperback: $12.99, ISBN 978-1-56163-586-3

See previews but also you can read the whole thing online at Privacy Activism with whom we’re working on this hotly topical story. Need we introduce the famous duo of Mark Badger and Gerard Jones?

Also in July from the mad mind of Greg (Vatican Hustle) Houston:

ELEPHANT MAN
Greg HOUSTON
Baltimore has a great hero. He’s always there just when he’s needed to thwart crime! This marvel is Elephant Man. Yes, none other than the deformed and hideous man himself! But such power and the adulation that follows it begets much jealousy. Before you know it, one of the city’s best known TV anchors, ‘handsome’ Dick Denton and another hideous being fused by some radioactive accident: the Priest, The Rabbi and The Duck, come together to seek his demise and ridicule him in public! Will Elephant Man overcome this new challenge? Another hilariously silly exercise in grotesquery, spoofing superheroes, from the acclaimed brilliant artist of Vatican Hustle.
6×9, 80pp, B&W trade pb., $9.99, ISBN 978-1-56163-588-X

From Eurotica that month, the next Noe:

PIN-UP ARTIST
Noe
The best-selling author of Convent of Hell and the Piano Tuner brings us to an exhibition of the great pin-up artist Gil Spam. He’s now a very old man in a wheelchair who can’t even speak, taken care of by his lovely niece. Chapter by chapter we get to discover the real dirty story behind each wonderful slightly naughty famous piece being exhibited. How could such charmingly risqué paintings have been inspired by such utter lechery and sexual abandon? Noe delivers another raunchy, funny and beautifully painted story.
81/2 x 11, 64 pp., full color trade pb., $13.99, ISN 978-1-56163-587-1
