Royo’s Malefic reviewed

December 29, 2009 by  
Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases, Reviews

Comic Mix reviews Malefic, which was then picked by the much larger IMDb: “His art speaks volumes without a single letter. He works predominantly with acrylic and oil on paper and the work is moving and imaginative. There’s an undercurrent of sensuality in his compositions regardless of setting or impending doom. Royo fans will certainly […]

San Diego Tribune on Rall’s latest

December 24, 2009 by  
Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases, Reviews

“Ted Rall is a terrific journalist (“Silk Road to Ruin”), a take-no-prisoners political cartoonist (“America Gone Wild,” to name just one collection, and his work runs in many media outlets) and … gigolo? There’s sex, sure, but it’s a hard and humiliating way to go, and Rall is brutal as he savages himself and the […]

We’re making a few: Mijeong, a manhwa, made Popcultureshock‘s list of best of 2009: “Wholly unlike most of the other English-translated manhwa hitting the shelves these days, this volume is a hidden gem, with glimpses of true brilliance that promise a great future for the artist.” SFSite put The Big Kahn in theirs: “Kleid’s story […]

Seasons Creepings

The undead have as much use as the dead. My Dad was kind enough to mail me a cow’s skull that he came across in a field. At least that’s where he said he found it. Often when I was younger I’d wander into the woods for hours and would eventually come upon a grisly […]

Booklist on Joe & Azat

“Lonergan’s clean, sharp lines, minimal backgrounds, and pure black and white (no grays, not even via shading) make another story of a youthful, probably temporary relationship vivid and affecting. Altogether excellent.” See more on Joe & Azat and Jesse Lonergan.

Vatican Hustle(s) the reviewers

Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases, Reviews

Vatican Hustle by Greg Houston gets a few awed remarks: “a love letter to the blacksploitation genre penned in the only manner such a note can successfully be executed: way the hell over the top. Houston clearly had a blast writing and drawing Vatican Hustle, and his joy is infectious.” Brian Heater of The Daily Cross Hatch […]

  First, let’s point you to a fun interview on Smith Magazine’s site with Ted Rall on his recent Year of Loving Dangerously. Greg McElhatton of Read About Comics sees Rall’s book as a bit of an exercise in self-justification but still grants that “This is the kind of glimpse into someone’s life that readers […]
