NBM Review Round-Up!

It’s not too late to get some of our fantastic books to give away as holiday gifts (or buy one or two for yourself, you deserve it!).

Here’s what the critics are saying about some of our recent titles.

Abelard

“A beautifully crafted piece of storytelling from Hautiére that tugs mercilessly at the heartstrings but doesn’t ever fall into sentimental or sickly sweet. If anything, by the end, we’re assaulted by the brutality of the story. And Dillies’ artwork is quite beautiful, his charming characters almost deliberately at odds with some of the themes and actions of the tale, yet never feeling wrong. His stylised colours perfectly suited to detailing all the wonders, all the misery, all the dreams Abelard finds along his journey.”

The Forbidden Planet International Blog Log

A poignant, droll, and heartbreaking “funny animals” tale for grown-ups, with breathtaking art.”

Karen GreenBoing Boing Annual “Return of the Best Damn Comics of the Year” List

 

Faster Than A Speeding Bullet: The Rise of the Graphic Novel

“A wonderful primer for both educators who need to familiarize themselves with the medium as well as those who have been reading comics faithfully for 50+ years. Like the best of historians, Mr. Weiner manages to logically connect seemingly disparate ideas and occurrences into one cohesive story, fitting a lot of important notes into one place, and he never belabors any of them. His timeline, (always important to a comic fan and reader!) is impeccable and brilliantly concise.”

New York Journal of Books

 

Stargazing Dog

“Stargazing Dog is a beautiful, poignant work on love and death and I dare you to not to cry while reading it.”

– Stuff & Nonsense

 

Taxes, The Tea Party and Those Revolting Rebels

“Stan Mack uses succinct language, humor, and clean and energetic black and white cartoons to turn a complex history into an accessible story…A completely unique and accessible way of learning history.”
