NBM Announces SPX Plans

NBM HEADS TO SPX 2013;

Premiering SCIENCE: A DISCOVERY IN COMICS

Margreet de Heer and Dara Naraghi & Brent Bowman (PERSIA BLUES) To Appear


On September 14-15th, you can find some of the most prestigious names in comics at the 2012 Small Press Expo (aka SPX).

Unlike many conventions that are geared toward pop culture or corporately owned comics, SPX was created in 1994 to promote artists and publishers who produce independent comics. SPX hosts an annual festival that provides a forum for artists, writers and publishers of comic art in its various forms to present to the public comic art not normally accessible through normal commercial channels.

It’s one of NBM’s favorite shows and this year we’re proud to bring three of our talented authors with us and the debut of our newest title.

Margreet de Heer will bring her new book, Science: A Discovery in Comics and will be signing throughout the weekend.

Science: dull or hard to understand?

Not if you read this book!

The creators of Philosophy – a Discovery in Comics take on a new challenge, and explain the different scientific disciplines in clear, colorful chapters.

Who exclaimed “Eureka” and why?

Why did Galileo get into a fight with the Church?

What happens when you have your DNA tested?

All these questions and more are answered in a chronological journey from ancient times to modern Quantum Theory, with creators Margreet and Yiri as your witty guides.

A great comic book for anyone who wants to learn in a fun way the bigger framework of science, or brush up on what they learned in school.

Margreet will be appearing at the NBM booth throughout the weekend and will be signing both Science, as well as her previous book, Philosophy.

PERSIA BLUESAlso appearing are Dara Naraghi and Brent Bowman, creators of the recently released first volume of the trilogy, Persia Blues.

Minoo Shirazi is a rebellious young Iranian woman, struggling to define herself amidst the strict social conventions of an oppressive regime, and  the differing wishes of an overbearing father, in between life in Iran and  life in midwestern America. Minoo Shirazi is also a free-spirited adventurer  in a fantasy world, a place where aspects of modern America and ancient Persia meld into a unique landscape. And yet, neither of these women are the true Minoo Shirazi. At the intersection of guilt and freedom, family and self, ancient myths and modern enigmas, lies…Persia Blues.

Also attending the show are Brooke A. Allen (A Home For Mr. Easter) at Table L8 and Jesse Lonergan (Joe and Azat, Flower and Fade and an upcoming title that he’ll have mini comic excerpts from) at Tables N9-10.

We’ll also be offering all of our latest titles and prints from artists Rick Geary and Stan Mack are available for free for any $30 purchase, with a signed version free with a $50 purchase.

Throughout SPX, NBM can be found at tables G1-2.
