Save 33% on ZOMBILLENIUM; Our Halloween Treat For You!

To celebrate Halloween, we’ve got both a trick and treat for you.

The trick is that we’re sharing the first half of the first volume of our fantastic horror and humor hybrid Zombillenium, a book that MTV Geek called “a real find.”

It’s about Francis von Bloodt a vampire and a good family man, who 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…

The treat is that we’re so confident that you’ll dig the book that we’re offering the book for 33% off through Friday, November 1st, Monday, November 4th!

Check out the trailer below and the excerpt after the jump.

And have a Happy Halloween!

NBM Review Round-Up!

Zombillenium

“This is an absolute comedy, and it’s a total riot. Zombillenium is nothing but fun, from its cute tongue-in-cheek moments to its laugh-out-loud humor. You don’t have to be a fan of zombies or anything like that to enjoy this graphic novel. If you’ve got a sense of humor, that’s all you need.”

MTV Geek

“Whatever dark dealings you think go on behind the doors and in the underground tunnels of Disneyworld, they’ve got nothing on the secrets of Zombillenium and its mysterious proprietor…de Pins’ work is fun, lively, and thoroughly funny, but a true sense of terror lurks just beyond the panels. The last page of the first volume ends with a perfect note of a very human monster showing us just how inhuman this story could truly be.”

New Jersey Online

“Before you think this is another book capitalizing on the zombie trend, it’s not. Zombillenium is an amusement park filled with entertaining staff members that are monsters.”

Fortress of Solitude

Philosophy – A Discovery in Comics

“Definitely recommended for those with an interest in graphic storytelling that goes beyond the usual genre work – or anyone who wants to bone up on the basics of Western thinking.”

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Omaha The Cat Dancer Volume 8

“It’s hard to imagine a combination of explicit sex and character development that would be less gratuitous. The characters in Omaha have sex because they are complicated, adult characters who do things that complicated adults do. It’s part of their lives, just like sleeping, eating, going to work, taking a walk, or breathing…Omaha is a wonderful character, and Omaha is a wonderful series.”

Comic Mix

“One of the seminal series that bridged underground with the new indie comics.”

Comics For Sinners

The P. Craig Russell Library of Opera Adaptations

P. Craig Russell's Opera Adaptations Hardcover set“Russell’s adaptations stay generally true to the story lines, though their panel serialization necessitates some liberties with the text. Their staging can be quite a bit more fantastic than what’s seen in the theater. Russell takes advantage of the graphic format to construct strong, detailed backgrounds.”

Santa Fe New Mexican

NBM Review Round-Up!

Omaha The Cat Dancer Volume 8

“Quality erotic comics.”

Publisher’s Weekly

“Dave Sim might win the title for longest and most determined self-published comic, but Omaha the Cat Dancer is much more fun and human as an artist’s significant, consuming accomplishment.”

Comics Worth Reading

Zombillenium

“A hoot from start to finish, with funny situations, great characters, witty dialogue, and art that is utterly gorgeous.”

Comics Waiting Room

An Enchantment

“Tinged with themes of regret and late life redemption, Durieux’s work is more a ruminative dialog than a complex tale. The book’s strength rests on its evocative earth-toned art and its appealing couple, who we can honestly accept in their late night museum setting. His heroine proves particularly striking; in lesser hands, she’d prove sentimentally Boho, but Durieux gives her dialogue a scholarly intelligence that’s suited to this lovingly illustrated graphic discourse on art and humanity. Every one of the volumes to date in the Louvre series has been an art and comics lover’s treat: An Enchanment does not prove an exception.”

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

The Initiates

“Davodeau and his old friend, the Loire winemaker Richard Leroy, spend a year enlightening the other about their respective professions. Wine, so often the producer of mental fog, becomes instead an agent of clarity; the two men, to say nothing of Davodeau’s readers, learn a great deal about the painstaking processes that make a comic book or a bottle.”

New Statesman

“A compelling, entertaining and educational tale that takes full advantage of the graphic storytelling medium.”

Miami Herald

“Although I’m not nearly as familiar with the French comics scene, I did recognize some of the figures mentioned in the book, like Lewis Trondheim (who makes an appearance) and Moebius. And I know even less about wine and wine-making. But even so, I really enjoyed following Davodeau and Leroy as they each explored a world that was totally new to them.”

Stargazing Dog was first published in Japan in 2008, where it has sold over a half million copies. It’s a relatively short graphic novel that should take about a half hour to read, except that I had to take numerous breaks from reading to cry. Do not read this in a public setting…This is a must read not only for the characters and plot but for the artwork too.”

The Book Shark

Taxes, The Tea Party and Those Revolting Rebels

“Mack has a refreshingly cynical view of, well, everything. All the familiar characters (Sam Adams, George Washington, King George) are presented with their personal motives front and center. (My favorite part: after Lexington & Concord we see a silhouette of Paul Revere filling out an expense voucher for his midnight ride.) Everyone was acting out of self-interest, as is always the case, but this time the result somewhat luckily ended up advancing the cause of democracy and human rights.”
