So I’m extremely busy these days with a big work-for-hire project that I’ve been asked to write along with a mammoth creator owned book that is taking up a lot of my time, but I wanted to drop by and quickly let everyone know that Amazon has made the digital version of Family Ties one of […]

Eric Hobbs and Noel Tuazon’s Shakespearean organized crime graphic novel, Family Ties, is their first work together since The Broadcast.  Here’s what the critics have to say. “Family Ties is a single volume graphic novel packed with tension and wrought with emotion, as well as more than a little violence. With all the hallmarks of […]

So it’s been about since the release of Family Ties and the response has been great. Thanks to everyone who’s picked up a copy, especially those who stopped by and saw Noel and I at TCAF last month. Not many people have a book signed by both of us. For those who couldn’t make it […]

Family Ties: A Godfather Influence

March 17, 2014 by  
Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases

  Obviously any drama that’s focused on a the members of a crime family is going to be influenced by The Godfather. The Godfather is one of richest stories to ever be told so it only makes sense that I drew on my love for those movies when writing Family Ties. One of the most […]

Family Ties: Why Alaska?

  So this is a question I get a lot: why would anyone set a crime thriller in Alaska? Of all places, right? Well, there are a couple reasons… The first is easy: I used to live there. Just as The Broadcast takes place in my backyard of Indiana, Family Ties takes place in a […]

FAMILY TIES: Action Packed?

February 1, 2014 by  
Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases

Last year, before the publication delay, I wrote a post promising  Family Ties would not be your typical crime story. This is still mostly true… More than anything, Family Ties is a book about the deterioration of a dysfunctional family. But as the finished art rolled in: to be honest, I was a little taken […]

Family Ties: Not Your Typical Crime Thriller

April 24, 2013 by  
Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases

This shouldn’t surprise anyone, really. After all, Noel and I already did a book about an alien attack without any aliens in it. The Broadcast was a character-driven thriller about families in rural America and how they might react to an alien invasion. The aliens (or lack thereof) were just a catalyst for the story […]

Family Ties: Late?

Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases

So I’ve heard from a few people checking in on Family Ties and its status. Rather than a long post to explain the obvious, I’ll state it as simply as I can: Family Ties is going to be a little late. Believe me, as a fan, I know what it’s like to expect a book […]
