Some suggestions of recent releases:


PHOOLAN DEVI, REBEL QUEEN
Claire Fauvel

She rebelled against the ancient tribal rules of India, her country, resulting in her becoming a Robin Hood type bandit. Essentially sold at the age of 11 to become a wife for a much older man, she ran away when he raped her. From that point on, there were few choices for her but to join a roaming gang of bandits, her ambition leading her to become their rebel chief. Ultimately, society caught up with her and she even became a strong voice for change as a representative in the Indian parliament.

A story of courage and unbending determination in front of centuries of established inequities in the classic Indian caste system. For mature readers.


STARRED REVIEW. A woman operating with an eye-for-an-eye attitude is a rare and powerful thing, and this heroic tale of Phoolan’s journey from despair and abuse to justice and renown, is intoxicating.” –Library Journal

“This striking biography is as memorable as its vigilante heroine.” –Publishers Weekly



BOB MARLEY IN COMICS

Gaet’s, Sophie Blitman

In the middle of a depressing youth in a ghetto of Kingston, Jamaica, Robert Nesta Marley sees only one way out: music. And that music will be what Jamaica made of rock and pop locally that had hardly been heard anywhere else: reggae! It is Marley who brings the unmistakable beat of reggae to the entire world.

From small stages in Jamaica, his partners of the Wailers accompany him all the way to the most fabulous world tours and adulation. Beyond a rocketing musical career, the most famous rasta wants to shake things up and proclaim all over his humanitarian and egalitarian values.


“One of the most anticipated graphic novels of Winter 2020.” –ComicsBeat

“Without any doubt Bob Marley and comics fans will be very pleased.” –
Reggae Vibes

“The narrative is accessible, the chronology clear, and the story acknowledges both the strengths and weaknesses of character in this iconic Jamaican figure.” –Booklist


RODIN
Eddy Simon, Joel Alessandra

This comics biography of one of the greatest sculptors who ever lived is done with the collaboration of the Rodin Museum and includes a preface by its director. It views his life through the eyes of the three women who shared his life for good or for bad. One was his lifelong on and off companion, the other two his muses, one of which was Camille Claudel, a well-recognized sculptor herself.

Rodin’s work was revolutionary in conveying exceptional passion, transcending the stone. Here’s how that happened.


“Recommended for art history buffs.” –Booklist

“An excellent introduction to the artist, and one with deep insights for art experts.” -Peter Dabbene, Foreword Reviews


750cc DOWN LINCOLN HIGHWAY
Bernard Chambaz, Barroux

“I hate marathons. Hate running. An hour before the start, I received a text. Instead of ‘Good luck,’ it was ‘We’re finished.’

So, I went to a bar next to the subway on 96th. Had a few bourbons with some other mope. Then I got on a bike and took off down the old Lincoln Highway.”

Forget Route 66. This is the original cross-country highway that takes you through REAL America, the first to cross all of the US from the Big Apple to the City on the Bay.

This is THE road trip. On a 750cc bike.


“One of the most anticipated graphic novels of Winter 2020.” –ComicsBeat

“Like a Gallic Jim Jarmusch road movie (though shorter), this slim motorcycle diary has its moments.” –Publishers Weekly

NBM Digital Sale Offers 4 Intro GNs for $1.99 each!

As many people find themselves quarantined at home, comic readers have found themselves with an opportunity to not only catch up on their own purchases, but also use the time to discover some new titles.

With that in mind, NBM is putting four titles on sale from April 1st, through April 30th for just $1.99 each!

Here’s what’s available:


The Silent Invasion Vol.1 : Red Shadows
Michael Cherkas & Larry Hancock
Introduction by Max Allan Collins

In this era of fake news and ‘deep state’ this couldn’t be more timely! 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.


Zombillenium Vol.1: Gretchen
Arthur de Pins

Francis von Bloodt, vampire, a good family man, manages the theme park Zombillenium. They don’t just hire anyone, at Zombillenium: mere mortals need not apply, the park works only with genuine werewolves, vampires and zombies.

This is what Aurelian gets to discover as, burnt out, deceived by his wife, he finally gets hired in spite of himself in this strange business. Gretchen, a plucky trainee witch, helps him get around…


Science – A Discovery in Comics
Margreet de Heer

Science: dull or hard to understand? Not if you read this book! The creators of Philosophy – a Discovery in Comics take on a new challenge, and explain the different scientific disciplines in clear, colorful chapters.

Who exclaimed “Eureka” and why?

Why did Galileo get into a fight with the Church?

What happens when you have your DNA tested?

All these questions and more are answered in a chronological journey from ancient times to modern Quantum Theory, with creators Margreet and Yiri as your witty guides.

A great comic book for anyone who wants to learn in a fun way the bigger framework of science, or brush up on what they learned in school.


A Treasury of Victorian Murder: The Borden Tragedy
Rick Geary

“Lizzie Borden took an axe, gave her mother forty whacks, when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one!”

In this volume of Geary’s Treasury, the famous Lizzie Borden double murder is explored with as much attention to well -researched detail as in his Jack the Ripper. This is another celebrated murder of last century, the one that lead to the infamous school rhyme.

The parallel between this old case and OJ Simpson’s is striking: both defendants had unblemished reputations; the double murders were gruesome; there were no witnesses and no weapons found; the cases took the media by storm. Both wealthy defendants hired expensive lawyers who convinced the jury of reasonable doubt. Both remain under a cloud of suspicion…

One Day Only 12/26! $3.99 Digital Sale on BETTY BLUES and MADISON SQUARE TRAGEDY

As a holiday gift to you, we’ve discounted two of our newest titles for one day only for just $3.99 each. It’s the perfect opportunity to try out some of the great books that we publish.

MADISON SQUARE TRAGEDY: The Murder of Stanford White by Rick Geary

Stanford White is one of New York’s most famous architects having designed many mansions and the first Madison Square Garden. His influence on New York’s look at the turn of the century was pervasive. As he became popular and in demand, he also became quite self-indulgent. He had a taste for budding young showgirls on Broadway, even setting up a private apartment to entertain them in, including a room with… a red velvet swing. When he meets Evelyn Nesbit, an exquisite young nymph, cover girl, showgirl, inspiration for Charles Dana Gibson’s “The Eternal Question” and for the later movie “The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing,” he knows he’s on to something special. However, Evelyn eventually marries a young Pittsburgh decadent heir with a dark side who develops a deep hatred for White and what he may or may not have done to her, setting up the most scandalous murder of the time.

 

BETTY BLUES by Renaud Dillies

Little Rice Duck has built himself quite the reputation around the West Wood, playing his trumpet in bars with their smoky, sweaty ambiance, tequila sunrises, and jazz. But between his trumpet and his flame Betty, things are going astray. Betty is drowning her need of him in expensive champagne, something someone else is more than happy to provide… something he’d much prefer, like her, would just stay chilled.
