Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases, Reviews

Dungeon Monstres 4 get s a couple reviews: “The DUNGEON books never let the reader down- they show you grand ideas, they make you laugh, they hold your interest, they put the work of amazing artists in front of you- to ask more of comics would be greedy. If there’s a sure bet in the […]

“This is probably my favorite of the Monstres stories, because it works on a number of levels. A new reader could come in and understand most of the story beats with little difficulty.

Sky Over the Louvre: Library Journal and Foreword gush

May 19, 2011 by  
Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases, Reviews

“With gorgeous art intermixing beauty and weirdness, the story turns on the capriciousness of both history and art while providing a sense of a time and place where art ranked up there with liberté, égalité, and fraternité for an entire nation. With nudity and mature content; for academic and adult collections.” Martha Cornog over at […]

Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases, Reviews

“In The Sky Over the Louvre, Carrière builds up a story that uses David as a framework around which to touch on both the history of the Louvre and the complicated political passions of the time. It’s Yslaire’s layout and drafting, though, that really makes the book sing. The players in this drama are all […]

Booklist’s Ray Olson found Sky Over the Louvre to be brought off ‘with singular panache on the part of artist Yslaire… This is bravura serious caricature.” but found scripter Carriere’s story to fall somewhat short of its potential. Comics Waiting Room meanwhile is effusive: “An artistic tour-de-force, yet it also tells the most relatable story we’ve […]
