Here are upcoming titles, now being solicited in comics stores through Diamond Previews for a October 2018 release.
Of Dust & Blood: The Battle at Little Big Horn
by Val Mayerik & Jim Berry
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.”
9×12, 48pp, full color HC, $17.99; ISBN 978-1-68112-183-3. DIAMOND CODE: AUG182092

After the horrible tragedy at Stoneman Douglas High School, we were informed that art teacher, Sandra Traub, was putting together art to display. The goal is to put up hopeful, positive pieces for the students who are returning to classes.
NBM’s creators have donated several pieces.
The first is from Val Mayerik, co-creator of Howard The Duck, and NBM’s upcoming Of Dust & Blood: The Battle at Little Big Horn, with writer Jim Berry.
The second is titled Star Fixer from Jon Nielsen (author of Look)
Hopefully, the donated art can be a source of comfort and inspiration for the students and faculty of this horrible tragedy.
