NBM January 2019 Releases

Here are upcoming titles, now being solicited in comics stores through Diamond Previews for a January 2019 release.

NEW!

Philip K. Dick: A Comics Biography
By Laurent Queyssi & 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 comics biography.

6×9, 144pp., full color hardcover, $24.99; ISBN: 978168112191852499; DIAMOND CODE: NOV181878

AVAILABLE AGAIN!

Thoreau: A Sublime Life

By A. Dan & Maximilien Le Roy

9781681120256

“To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school, but so to love wisdom as to live according to its dictates, a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity and trust.”

This graphic novel biography relates the forward looking inspirational life of the great author, philosopher and pioneering ecologist. Henry David Thoreau was also the father of the concept, still fresh today (viz ‘Occupy Wall St.’), of ‘civil disobedience’ which he used against slavery and the encroachment of government.

8 ½ x 11, 88pp, full color hardcover, $19.99: ISBN: 978168112025651999; DIAMOND CODE: NOV181880

Sartre
By Mathilde Ramadier & Anais Depommier

9781681121017

For some he was the philosopher of existentialism, for others the constant provocateur, the politically engaged author, the uncertain militant, the repenting bourgeois, the life companion of Simone de Beauvoir…

From his first readings in the Luxembourg Garden to his refusal of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Jean Paul Sartre was all of this at the same time.

8×11, 160 pp., color HC, $27.99; ISBN: 978168112101752799; DIAMOND CODE: NOV181879
