Official Press Release

Coming this December and being solicited for at your comics shop now:

INNER SANCTUM
Tales of Mystery, Horror and Suspense
Ernie Colón
A revered veteran of comics brings to comics life tales based on one of the most fondly remembered mystery and horror radio shows in history. In striking black & white as only Colón is well known for, we are swept into chilling mysteries including:
The Horla: A man is haunted by a mysterious, grotesque being only he can see… It seeks to enslave him, but in the end reveals its true intent–to destroy him.
Death of a Doll: An unidentified corpse in the morgue intrigues a reporter, who sets out to identify her and how she died. On her was a doll which cries “Kara Nana”, another name for the devil.
The Undead: A young woman discovers an obituary for her living husband.
Alive in the Grave: Seeing a man collapse in an alley, our hero rushes to help only to find that the man is dead. Jobless and desperate, he takes the man’s wallet, only to find out later he may not have been dead! He rushes back only to find that the man has been removed and buried…perhaps alive.
6×9, 112pp, B&W jacketed hardcover, $16.99 ISBN 978-1-56163-614-3

NBM in October: Salvatore is back

Official Press Release

NBM

Here’s what’s being solicited in comics stores as we speak, coming in October, the headline being De Crecy’s warmly received Salvatore series having its second volume:


Salvatore, vol.2
“An Eventful Crossing”
Nicholas De Crecy
The next chapter of this highly acclaimed off-the-wall nominated for an Eisner series that never ceases to astonish and amuse! Salvatore the crack dog mechanic has now finished his rig and is off to all the way out somewhere in Latin America to his sweetheart pooch he has been pining for. His trip which he takes with his reluctant assistant, a minuscule human who communicates only through his PC, goes all the way through Russia and the Bering Straits, a route he characterizes as epic but is really designed to avoid the seas which Salvatore is deadly afraid of. On the way, there are many temptations such as the pretty cat Julie who, as it turns out, has adopted the missing piglet Amandine the Sow has been so desperately spending her last penny trying to find while, unbeknownst to her, the rest of her litter is busy in a lucrative endeavor of bio recycling.
61/2 x 9, 112pp. full color trade pb, $14.99 ISBN 978-1-56163-613-6

What they said of volume 1:

“I love this book! Near-perfect. I can think of nothing better than another late night filled with pigs in overalls and bulls wearing AC/DC T-shirts. As soon as I can pre-order Vol. 2, I’m on it.”
-Whitney Matheson, USA Today ‘Pop Candy’
“Delightful.” –The Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Charming, amusing, and sometimes unsettling tale. From De Crecy’s always surprising mind. He is particularly gifted at creating a sense of action on the page.” –Publishers Weekly
“De Crecy’s loose, organic illustrations breathe life into his characters and give energy to his panel movement. [His] dry, witty humor combined with his endearing creatures makes a singular and worthy addition to comprehensive graphic novel collections.”
Library Journal Starred review
“The mix of comedy and drama is welcome and feels truer to life than books that are one or the other.”
ComicMix
“Eccentric” Booklist

GERONIMO STILTON & THE SMURFS FLIP BOOK

NBM: January 2011 Solicitations

Official Press Release

NBM

Here’s what we’ve got planned for January. Unfortunately, as far as ordering these through your comic bookstore goes, it gets tricky: Diamond distributors decided NOT to carry these banded specially priced sets!

SO, that means you can only get them through us and some comic stores who order directly from us (ask them)! Here goes:

BIGGER NOTHINGS:
THE LITTLE NOTHINGS SET Vols. 1-3
Lewis TRONDHEIM
Now in a specially priced banded set of the 3 volumes, Trondheim’s popular little slice of life vignettes are collected together. “It’s very gently funny but splendidly assured and evocative of place — if a friend had drawn you a page of it as a letter, you’d treasure it forever” said The New York Times Book Review of this strip.
3 volumes banded together, 6×9, 384 pp., full color trade pbs with flaps, $39.99 (normally $45), ISBN 978-1-56163-599-3

see previews

ORDINARY VICTORIES SET
Manu LARCENET
One of the most acclaimed graphic novels of the decade is now available in a specially priced banded set of the 2 volumes. This is the story of Marc, a photographer who’s tired, of a very patient chick he meets, of banal horrors and of his pain-in-the-neck cat.
It’s the story of his art thrown against heavy anxiety attacks; of a really cute woman in his small town who seems to take to him against all odds; of the old neighbor, a peaceful likable fellah until you get to know his disturbing role in the war…
Called one of five best graphic novels by TIME magazine on its release, it was also a Booklist top 10 graphic novel of the year: “Superb marriage of literary realism and comics.” “Like any great work of art, it is possible to hold the pages up and through them, see the world” said Comic Book Resources.
2 volume set banded together, 6
1/2 x 9, 248 pp, full color trade pbs, $29.99 (normally $32),
ISBN 978-1-56163-600-6

And from Eurotica, this one comics stores will be able to order through Diamond:

OMAHA The Cat Dancer, set of vols. 1-7
Reed WALLER, Kate WORLEY
Now’s your chance to own the entire run of this best-selling classic of comics erotica at a very special price. Omaha is remarkable in that it blends intelligent and captivating story with well-rounded funny animal characters as well as totally guilt-free joyously rendered sex!
Bundled set of 7 volumes, 8 1/2×11, B&W, trade pbs., 816 pp., $75 (normally over $90!) ISBN 978-1-56163-601-3
