The publicity on The Big Kahn just keeps rolling along and gathering steam! The latest is a great interview by author Sasha Watson on Publishers Weekly’s Comics Week newsletter. And… looks like a major paper will be running something very soon… stay tuned.

Filed under NBM Blog

Before the green tea incident (see below) I had wanted to apprise everyone of the situation that is going down this Saturday only in CHICAGO, city of golden showers! My friends at Around Comics (one of the top comic book podcasts out there) are hosting the 2nd annual WINDY CITY COMICON which will be chock-full […]

Porn Your Grandmother Would Approve Of?

September 16, 2009 by  
Filed under NBM Blog

Well if she was a zombie then THINGS UNDONE would be considered soft-core porn with a heart. Kind of the Hallmark Greeting Card version of the brain-chomping, gut-pulling zombie stories that seem to be pervasive in current popular culture. Not tongue-in-cheek funny where the zombies or characters are winking at the audience, but funny in […]

THE BIG KAHN is a Good Comic… and Comics SHOULD be Good!

Greg Burgas at Comic Book Resources’ “Comics Should be Good” blog claims that THE BIG KAHN is “definitely in consideration for best graphic novel of the year.” He also says that “I enjoyed Brownsville, Kleid’s last book, but thought there was room for improvement. With The Big Kahn, he’s made a big leap in mastery […]

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 […]

(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 […]
