BEA report: 2 NBM GN’s make hot list

The Book Expo America was quite a success, well attended and busy. It was actually quite amazing how many comics publishers were absent from DC to Fantagraphics and frankly they missed out! One goes into this event rather skeptically in these changing times but it’s amazing its buoyancy and the energy this year was palpable.

We were sharing our booth with sister co. Papercutz and had a rotation of artists appearing: Ernie Colon premiered his beautiful INNER SANCTUM adaptations a book pubbing in February. He’s pictured above with Papercutz’ Editor-in-Chief Jim Salicrup. On Papercutz’ side we had Stefan Petrucha and Rick Parker promoting their Slices parodies and Nancy Drew.

We ran out of books to sign and catalogs, a good sign.

We also were happy to see two of our books make the GN Buzz panel’s recommended list for Fall: The Sky Over the Louvre and Geary’s soon to come Sacco & Vanzetti.
