“The concise narrative incorporates diverse threads and is packed with details that will mesmerize readers—Lincoln’s prophetic dream of his own death, John Wilkes Booth’s careful and cold-blooded preparations, the identification of the perpetrator’s body after his death by the initials he had carved into his right hand as a child. Geary also raises questions that […]

Filed under NBM Blog, Reviews

The Boston Globe on Sunday had a great roundup by Carlo Wolff of graphic novels and amongst the books reviewed, David B’s Nocturnal Conspiracies: “Teeming with animals, corrupt politicians, alluring women, his own malleable consciousness and other shape shifts, this scans like a dream.” And Miss Don’t Touch Me: “A more orthodox piquancy infuses Miss […]

Japan’s English language newspaper, The Daily Yomiuri, had some kind words on Metronome: “Offers a surprisingly engaging story that, without the hindrance of language, anyone can understand. Tanaka makes good use of rythmn, themes and cadences to set the scene and mood.”

I always seem to be coming to this realization that nobody looks anywhere near as closely at my work as I do.   And here are some pencils of the cover for my Turkmenistan book (it’s a little cut off)(it does go around in a complete circle)(but you get the idea). I’ll probably being adding […]

Comics Waiting Room. com has this to say about Little Nothings 2 What stood out for me here overall, though, was the observational quality of the writing. Trondheim is one of the most accomplished artists in the world, but he has a poetic soul with the pen. When he ruminates on what it feels like […]

Newsarama: Trondheim appears determined to guarantee himself a place on everyone’s Best Of lists on an annual basis. Everything about the strips, the humor, the coloring, the observations about our cultural standards, is warm and inviting. Trondheim’s self-effacing wit remains strong. Little Nothings has become the most welcome, positive and anticipated book of the year. […]
