NBM Appearing at ALA Annual Conference & Exhibition

alano

For members of the American Library Association attending the annual conference and exhibition in New Orleans from June 22 – June 25th, NBM Graphic Novels will be showcasing many of our forthcoming titles.

You can find NBM sharing booth space with our sister company, Papercutz, at Booth 3425.  Publisher Terry Nantier will be in attendance (as will illustrator Thomas Campi for the new Papercutz release, The Joe Shuster Story: The Artist Behind Superman).

We’ll have copies of all of our latest releases, as well as the chance to look at previews of the following forthcoming titles:

The Provocative Colette
By Annie Goetzinger

COLETTE_coverMany biographies describe this uncommon woman and author. It is her years of formation which are focused on here, from her marriage at the age of 20, until her divorce.

“One dies only from the first man,” she wrote in 1909. But this death was a new beginning, and the one that signed “Colette” from 1910 on gradually opened her eyes to her condition of a woman who was an exploited writer and a betrayed wife, and who will emancipate herself by writing, and with what talent!

Incredibly complex, powerfully determined, truly gifted, Colette challenged herself to reinvent her life and assert herself as a free woman. In her day, her behavior scandalized and vexed the establishment. But in the end, she helped to free women in their thinking and became member and then president of France’s prestigious Académie Goncourt, among many other honors as one of France’s preeminent authors. For mature readers.

 

The Silent Invasion Vol. 1: Red Shadows
By Michael Cherkas & Larry Hancock

9781681121741

The paranoid cult-classic science fiction mystery of the early days of indie comics returns! The series will begin with two books reprinting the original volumes, followed by the never before collected third album and concluding with an all-new fourth book of this epic series of conspiracy and paranoia.

Set against the background of a nightmarish 1950s crawling with communist spies, corrupt FBI agents, McCarthyites, Stalinists, cold warriors, flying saucers, mysterious government organizations, The Silent Invasion weaves a byzantine tale of mystery and deceit as a bewildered investigative reporter Matt Sinkage pursues the truth behind an apparent alien invasion of earth that points to involvement at the highest levels of American government officials.

 

Of Dust & Blood: The Battle at Little Big Horn
By Val Mayerik & Jim Berry

9781681121833

This thrilling tale details the day of The Battle at The Little Big Horn through the eyes of Greenhaw, a 7th Cavalry scout on one side of the battlefield, and Slowhawk, a young Lakota warrior on the other. Featuring appearances of Sitting Bull, G.A. Custer, and Crazy Horse, as well as generous portions of meticulously researched history on every page, the book’s art has been lauded as “Tremendous… Beautiful. Each panel and page could easily be a piece of solo art hanging on someone’s wall.”

 

The Beatles In Comics!
By Michels Mabel and Various

9781681121871

Here’s the complete illustrated story of the Beatles from their formation, through the Beatlemania phenom all the way through their breakup. We see how they evolved along with and amplifying the uproar of the sixties, became politically and socially active and have achieved a lasting impact unparalleled in pop music. Chapters combine text and comics for complete information presented in a fun way.

 

Philip K. Dick: A Comics Biography
By Laurent Queyssi and Mauro Marchesi

9781681121918

One of the greatest writers in SF history, Philip K. Dick is mostly remembered for such works as Blade Runner, Minority Report and Total Recall. His dark fascinating work centered on alternate universes and shifting realities in worlds often governed by monopolistic corporations and authoritarian governments.

His own life story seems a tussle with reality, going through five wives and becoming increasingly disjointed with fits of paranoia and hallucinations fueled by abuse of drugs meant to stabilize him. His dramatic story is presented unvarnished in this biography.

 

We’ll be giving away blads of The Silent Invasion Vol. 1: Red Shadows and Philip K. Dick: A Comics Biography!

 

NBM Graphic Novels Booth is #3425
Hope to see you in New Orleans!
