Sorry for my absence from this blog for a while. I’ve been taking advantage of the “calm before the storm” of promoting “The Year of Loving Dangerously” to work on another book, an all-prose political manifesto. It’s coming out in the fall of 2009. I’ve got 27,000 out of 40,000 words done, and it’s due […]

SEAS grad draws ‘sketchy’ life With the edgy, graffiti-swathed New York of 1984 as its stage, “The Year of Loving Dangerously” tells the rousing coming-of-age story of the now renowned political cartoonist in the year his life fell apart.

Ain’titcool: Story of O

A rave with reservations if that can be. While Ain’t It Cool News was at times appalled by what O goes through, even calling the book mysoginistic (which means he didn’t really get it) he waxes lyrical about Crepax’ adaptation of it: “First of all, the Eurotica imprint of NBM Publishing has done a beautiful […]

oop, a bit late here, as it’s already a few posts down, but a warm welcome to Pablo Callejo, whose art graces Ted’s latest Year of Loving Dangerously. Of course, you might already know him for his work with Rob Vollmar on Bluesman and the Castaways. Always wondrous stuff. And hopefully he’ll talk for both he […]

On Dungeon Early Years 2: “The Dungeon series remains a thrilling, sharp read, in this case thanks largely in part to Blain’s stunning art work. Certainly this isn’t a good jumping-on point for newcomers, but it’s well worth getting through the series to arrive at this point. You’ll be surprised where the journey takes you.” […]

Hi, everyone. This is Pablo Callejo, writting from Spain. I’m happy to be here, and I would thank Terry Nantier for hosting me at his virtual home. First at all, let me tell you that I’m a self-taught English speaker, so please excuse my horrible way of writting. Now, on the subject: Pepo Pérez, a […]

Sequential Tart on Joe & Azat + the National Post

Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases, Reviews

“The art of Joe and Azat is deceptively simple. Black and white images, mostly of faces and places, do an adept job of telling the story. On the surface it represents the simple way of life for the people of Turkmenistan. However, when you study the images in adjunct with the text, the complexity of […]

The famous art magazine of bondage Skin Two and its chief Tim Woodward reviews our Story of O: “Guido Crepax, the great pioneer of sensual graphic comics, uses multi-panelled pages to give the impression that you are peeping through a keyhole into O’s world of SM submission. She gives herself up to bondage, humiliation, sex […]

When In Doubt Refer To The Good Book

The Rukhnama is a truly amazing book. This is the quasi-political-spiritual-self-help-how-to-win-friends-and-dominate-people book written by Turkmenbashy (the former president for life of Turkmenistan). It was in all the schools in Turkmenistan while I was there. It was used in every classroom (I even saw it used in a math class). It was on sale in nearly […]
