I guess the best place to begin is with an introduction. My name is Eric Hobbs, and I’ve written a book titled THE BROADCAST set to be published by NBM later this fall. Taking place during a treacherous storm, THE BROADCAST is about a rural Indiana town that loses power halfway through Orson Welles’ infamous [...]
The site Comic Book Bin has an NBM month going on with lotsa reviews of our books and this interview of our publisher.
The Seattle Post Intelligencer picked up the Blog Critics review of Dungeon Twilight vol.3.: “with satiric bite, visual inventiveness, and engagingly fallible anthropomorphic heroes, New Centurions delivers the goods, particularly in its second half.” The Comics Journal’s Rob Clough has this to say about our latest entry in the Louvre collection, On the Odd Hours: [...]
Wherein your humble hirsute narrator presents, for all to see and regale, the result of 14 days of non shaving in preparation for his August trip back to Afghanistan.

Here’s his release on this fun challenge: In 1938, Orson Welles used fake news bulletins to convince more than one million Americans the Earth was being invaded by visitors [...]
John Hogan over at GNR must like us, we guess, as he’s put most of our summer output on their Hottest Graphic Novels for the Summer list. That includes Networked: Carabella on the Run, The Broadcast, The Axe-Man of New Orleans and even includes Noe’s latest salacious (and indeed bitingly funny) Pin-Up Artist from NBM’s Eurotica imprint [...]

Then they go home, satisfied that they’ve said their piece without taking a personal risk. Oppressive governments love such phony “activists.” Not only can they carry on as usual, they point to the toothless [...]
