Filed under NBM Blog

I was an English teacher and Turkmenistan and before every class I heard the sacred oath chanted by students. Starting from the very lowest grades they new it by heart. It was kind of like the pledge of allegiance, only… Turkmenistan, My beloved motherland, My beloved homeland, You are always with me In my thoughts […]

Rall’s Year starting to get reaction

Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases, Reviews

“Say what you will about political lightning rod Ted Rall: the man’s not afraid of coming off like a dick. Callejo’s painted art, a far cry from the proto-punk stylings Rall uses on his political cartoons, captures the milieu wonderfully and even manages to convey the varying degrees of dismay Rall’s young self feels over […]

Here’s a review of THINGS UNDONE that was recently brought to my attention. I had a dream last night that Werner Herzog had hired me for a film he was doing. I was over at a friend’s house discussing why we couldn’t start our film in the North Atlantic Ocean, because we didn’t have shark […]

Sorry for my absence from this blog for a while. I’ve been taking advantage of the “calm before the storm” of promoting “The Year of Loving Dangerously” to work on another book, an all-prose political manifesto. It’s coming out in the fall of 2009. I’ve got 27,000 out of 40,000 words done, and it’s due […]

SEAS grad draws ‘sketchy’ life With the edgy, graffiti-swathed New York of 1984 as its stage, “The Year of Loving Dangerously” tells the rousing coming-of-age story of the now renowned political cartoonist in the year his life fell apart.

Ain’titcool: Story of O

A rave with reservations if that can be. While Ain’t It Cool News was at times appalled by what O goes through, even calling the book mysoginistic (which means he didn’t really get it) he waxes lyrical about Crepax’ adaptation of it: “First of all, the Eurotica imprint of NBM Publishing has done a beautiful […]

oop, a bit late here, as it’s already a few posts down, but a warm welcome to Pablo Callejo, whose art graces Ted’s latest Year of Loving Dangerously. Of course, you might already know him for his work with Rob Vollmar on Bluesman and the Castaways. Always wondrous stuff. And hopefully he’ll talk for both he […]

On Dungeon Early Years 2: “The Dungeon series remains a thrilling, sharp read, in this case thanks largely in part to Blain’s stunning art work. Certainly this isn’t a good jumping-on point for newcomers, but it’s well worth getting through the series to arrive at this point. You’ll be surprised where the journey takes you.” […]

First at all, let me tell you that I’m a self-taught English speaker, so please excuse my horrible way of writting. Now, on the subject: Pepo Pérez, a […]
