Secret Games

Filed under NBM Blog

I’m going to try and make some sense, though I’ve had a hard time explaining this in the past. I think of drawing comics as playing a game. It’s sort of like Scrabble. You have these pieces and they’re worth a certain amount of points, and you want to get as much out of those […]

Filed under NBM Blog

(a little bit of a pastie just for this posting) NBM in November has the next issue of Sizzle #44 whose main feature will be the return of the VERY popular, beautifully painted KRISTINA, Queen of Vampires. This is an erotic vampire series. The first two graphic novels from Eurotica, our erotic comics imprint, have sold […]

Merdan

Filed under NBM Blog

Some of the characters in Joe and Azat are based on real people, but Azat’s older brother Merdan (the one in control of the motorcycle) really came out of nowhere. He showed up in one of the early versions of the story as a rather unimportant background character, but he quickly asserted himself. He became […]

Color Me Kubrick

I’m watching crows eat lychee nuts in a tree outside my studio window. What’s that have to do with THINGS UNDONE? Nothing…but at least you can order the book online until…oh I don’t know…next week when it’ll be available in comic shops! You know I almost made the book green. I even went through a […]

Jazma Interview and HEEB review of THE BIG KAHN

Filed under NBM Blog

Two more BIG KAHN bits for your scoresheets – first, a decent little interview went up at Jazma Online. “Jazma: Why write about the Jewish faith? Neil: Write what you know, basically. Honestly, I think one of the things that drags me back to Jewish comics might be that I’m the one of the few […]

And more reviews rolls in!

As THE BIG KAHN starts shipping to major bookstores and via Amazon, we picked up a great review from the Onion A.V. Club on Friday, garnering an A minus! “Kleid’s story is intimate and mature about relationships, both interpersonal and between people and their beliefs, and he resists any urge to underline or spell out […]

Mutiny on the Bounty

Filed under NBM Blog

Imagine that, I found another zombie lurking in my sketchbooks. Of course this doesn’t even remotely resemble THINGS UNDONE. Word on the street is it’ll be in comic shops in a few weeks. With the typhoons in Taiwan and the hurricanes off every coast I’m sure navigating the oceans is wreaking havoc on shipping. Trust […]

To Afghanistan & Back more relevant than ever

Filed under NBM Blog

Ted Rall’s book on his trip to Afganistan right in the middle of the war after 9/11 turns out to be dead-on these many years later. Ted predicted things wouldn’t be so easy and that the Taliban was hardly wiped out. Afghanistan has historically been the doom of empires from the UK to Russia and […]

Songs I Heard Too Many Times

I was in Northampton, MA, this weekend at this little club/bar called The Basement where they play an awesome mix of music. Seventies funk, girl groups, Studio One reggae, doo wop, Del Shannon, great stuff. One of the songs they played while I was there was Popcorn by Hot Butter, which almost immediately brought me […]
