This Weekend, NBM Proudly Debuts P. Craig Russell’s The Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde V. 5 at MoCCA!

This weekend, at the 2012 MoCCA Fest, we’re debuting the long awaited fifth volume in P. Craig Russell’s The Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde series, Volume 5: The Happy Prince.

Craig will also be making a rare convention appearance and serve as the Fest’s very first Guest of Honor.

In addition to the stunning volume, we’ll also have 10 copies of the signed and numbered edition of the book which are quarterbound in real cloth and fine paper with a tip-in sheet signed by P. Craig Russell.

If that’s not awesome enough, Brooke A. Allen (A Home For Mr. Easter) and Neil Kleid (Brownsville, The Big Kahn) will also be hanging around the booth with publisher Terry Nantier and Papercutz artist Rick Parker (Slices, Tales From The Crypt).

So, come by Booth J4, say “hello” and be one of the very first to own Craig’s newest book.

 

 

Welcome to Craig Russell!

The Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde Vol.5: The Happy Prince

A belated welcome to Craig Russell to our blog! We’ve got a series of fascinating videos/interviews of him working specifically on his next Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde, the 5th volume with the Happy Prince, coming out in April and to be premiered at MoCCA in NY end of April. We’ll post one a week of those and also have him comment in regular blog entries on his work.

The book is being solicited for now at comics stores.

We’re also busy at the office working on putting together the book to go out to the printer tomorrow. The artwork is stunning and Lovern Kindzierski’s colors just beautiful! Lovin’ every minute.

Sean’s interview in Ireland

An nice radio/podcast type interview with me went up today in Ireland  – talking about various of my books. I especially go into some detail about  the writing of The Story of Lee, some critics views and my reactions – but also about my books AX and Yakuza Moon and others.

A good mix of serious discussion about comics and also relaxed joking around, but please excuse me sniffing quite a lot, my nose was blocked up that day!: http://thecomiccast.com/2011/11/22/alternative-manga-an-interview-with-sean-michael-wilson/

Kinky & Cosy #10 on NYTimes GN bestseller list + more press

Nix’ snarky Kinky & Cosy is #10 on this week’s New York Times Bestseller list for hardcover graphic novels!

And Robot 6 has this to say about the collection:

“Nix’s little rascals are bad kids in the Bart Simpson/Calvin/Shinchan mode, but the humor is more fearless.”

“Recommended. The cultural tension is beautifuilly written, and the story is told well in the small moments between Lee and Matt.”

Library Media Connection on the Story Of Lee.

The Portland Examiner covers Rick Geary’s successful appearance at Bridge City Comics last week.

Finally, Manga Maniac Cafe gives Stargazing Dog an A-.
