Yesterday evening we celebrated our art director’s 20 years with us! Martin Satryb came to us from Tower Records NYC and since then we’ve been working together as quite a good team. I think we can truly say we’ve put out some pretty fine books!
So we took him to his favorite: the famous classic steakhouse Delmonico’s. He died and went to heaven over a succulent 20 ouncer.
Thank you Martin for such loyal service over more than half of NBM’s history and now all of sister co. Papercutz’ history, from all of us!
In the picture from left you see Jim Salicrup, my co-founder at Papercutz and editor-in-chief, Michael Petranek, our former associate editor, now at Scholastic -he and Martin would throw stuff at each other- Jeff Whitman, my assistant at NBM and Papercutz production coordinator/marketing ass’t., Bethany Bryan, associate ed. at Papercutz, Sven Larsen, marketing VP, Papercutz, Tony Shenton, legendary comics store rep who started with us even longer ago than Martin, Martin, me and Marc Minoustchine (hey, the M in NBM) who’s joining our team.
As we mentioned earlier, the Firecrackers Awards for the best in indie lit are back, thanks to the CLMP, Community for Literary Magazines and Presses, and tonight they gave out their awards at the very cool powerHouse Arena in DUMBO.
The book is in! One of our most beautiful productions. A quarter-bound (with cloth around the spine) hardcover with raised titles and spot lamination which hopefully this photo shows you…
We received a few advance copies for press via air freight. The full stock comes into our distributor IPG’s warehouse in a month.
We are busy setting up quite a launch for this, with Kinokuniya NYC involved and lots more… details to come! Meantime, the Wall St. Journal has just put up a piece on the growing involvement of women in comics and this is well represented in it. From the looks of the interest we’re getting from the press, working with DIOR US as well, this should only be the beginning…
Something unusual for October, a book you can fold-out all the way with a street scene, one side evolving by day, one by night. A visual treat!
A visually incomparable treat and a brilliant homage to Hitchcock’s Rear Window, this unusual accordion book opens in two directions. One, a series of ten tableaux on a street scene as it evolves during the day. The next on 10 evening tableaux of the same view. A window may serve as a source of light and fresh air, but it also presents a view onto the life of a street and its many other windows, each a separate scene of its own, with its multitude of on-going stories developing before your eyes. Within those windows, you can witness the lives of single people, couples, families, stories of love, separation and possibly even… murder.

NOIR THRILLER SET
The Broadcast and Family Ties
Two thrillers in one engrossing set!
In the Broadcast, on the day of the historic broadcast of The War of the Worlds by Orson Welles which triggered panic in many places it sounded so real, a family in the countryside fears for its life and also has to deal with strangers and neighbors coming in for help. The tension brings to the surface long suppressed emotions and conflicts and a violent reckoning in a dark stormy night.
Hoping to secure a future for his children, an aging Alaskan crime boss in Family Ties looks to retire and divide his empire amongst his three heirs. But when his idealistic son refuses the inheritance, the old man disowns him. This turns out to be a fatal mistake when he sees his cold-blooded daughters use their new-found power and influence against him. Inspired by the classic play King Lear, The Godfather meets Shakespearean tragedy in this epic tale of betrayal and loss.

What they said of this:
“Miss Don’t Touch Me is really nothing more than a murder mystery and period piece, but it sure is a good one—so good, in fact, that you may find yourself needing to be reminded how un-ambitious an unpretentious it actually is. ” –Newsarama
“It’s hard to imagine a sequential art story better than this!”
–Booklist Starred Review, A BOOKLIST TOP TEN GRAPHIC NOVEL 2009.
