For the book professionals among you attending the annual Book Expo America this week:
Our main feature will be the appearance Tuesday and Wednesday of Ernie COLON who will be premiering his adaptations of stories from the classic radio show INNER SANCTUM.
He will be signing a special collector’s preview we’ve printed up specially for the occasion with one of the 4 tales of mystery, horror and suspense the book will feature.
Ernie Colon is a veteran of comics having drawn everything from Conan to Casper the Friendly Ghost. He is noted of late mostly for his and Sid Jacobson’s adaptation of The 9/11 Commission Report as well as biographies of Anne Frank and Che Guevarra, all from Farrar, Strauss, Giroux.
At NBM booth 3139, there will also be previews of the best-selling moving manga “Star Gazing Dog” by Takashi Murakami which has sold over 400,000 in Japan and has a movie adaptation coming out there this summer. This will mark the first time NBM publishes a manga, although it has published some literary Korean manhwa (see here and here).
Other goodies to expect from NBM this fall: a new Salvatore, Little Nothings as featured on this blog regularly and a delightful poetic fairy tale for all ages discovery “Bubbles & Gondola”. All can be seen at the booth this week.
With BEA, NBM inaugurates its distribution deal with IPG.
