NBM in March: Lonergan is back with ALL STAR
Here’s what we’ve got planned for March that’s presently being solicited for in comics stores.
Jesse LONERGAN of Flower & Fade and Joe & Azat is back with:
It’s the end of the school year in 1998. Mark McGwire is racing Sammy Sosa to break the home run record, Bill Clinton is being questioned about a White House intern named Monica Lewinsky, Semisonic’s Closing Time is on top of the charts, and Carl Carter is leading the Elizabeth Monarchs of rural Vermont to the state championship in his senior year. A full scholarship to the University of Maine is waiting for him, and everyone says he has a shot at the pros. He’s so good he can do whatever he wants.
Until he makes one very arrogant mistake.

AND TED RALL’S SILK ROAD TO RUIN long out of print is back, now in paperback!
SILK ROAD TO RUIN
Why Central Asia Is The Next Middle East
2nd Edition, updated with an additional chapter
Part graphic novel travelog, part tongue-in-cheek travel guide, here are the adventures of caustic cartoonist Rall in the wild and wooly central Asian countries, a powder keg sitting on tomorrow’s oil… Combines articles with comics chapters relating his experiences retracing the old legendary Silk Road starting with the sublime history of China and ending in the absurdity of the petty dictatorships of the “The ‘Stans” where Rall had the temerity -or was it blustery stupidity?- to go back, including once with a group of listeners to his radio show, on a dare. It’s exotic adventure, satire and a fun way to find out more about a part of the world that looms in importance with its immense reserves of oil…
“A rollicking, subversive and satirical portrait of the region that is part travelogue, part graphic novel. It’s fresh and edgy and neatly captures the reality of travel in the region.”
-Lonely Planet Guide for Central Asia
“As a ticking package, the visual and verbal delivery is irreplaceable. This is wrenching stuff. I admire the hell out of the way Rall walks the walk.”
-Rich Kreiner, Comics Journal
