Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases

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.

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
