San Diego: Free signed print by Royo for each book purchased

In our last bit of news before heading out to the San Diego Comic Con, we’ll be giving out a free signed plate by Luis Royo limited to 200  for every book purchased of his!

We’ll have the complete array of his available books at our booth. Starting this fall, we will be relaunching his classic best-selling collections enhanced with many new pieces and reuniting some of the volumes together into longer clothbound editions. Malefic will be the first to undergo this transformation, shipping this December.

Come see us in booth 1528!

Note: Richard Moore unfortunately had to cancel his plans to come and so did Cornnell Clarke. Sorry for the disappointment.

THE BIG KAHN PREMIERES at the San Diego Con

Neil Kleid’s And Nicolas Cinquegrani’s The Big Kahn which Graphic Novel Reporter already touted as one of the Hot Graphic Novels of this summer makes its premiere next week at the San Diego Comic-con where Neil Kleid will appear to sign at our booth #1528.

Here’s Neil’s schedule of appearances:
Thurs.: 1-2:30, 4-7
Fri.: 10:30-noon, 2:30-4
Sun.: 10:30-noon, 1-2:30 

THE BIG KAHN
Neil KLEID, Nicolas CINQUEGRANI

Rabbi David Kahn has lived a forty-year lie: he is not, nor has he ever been, Jewish. When at his funeral, the “rabbi’s” grifter brother reveals the truth, it forces the Kahn family to struggle with grief and betrayal as their congregation examines their every move and question their very faith. His son, Rabbi Avi Kahn, the heir apparent, spirals down in an affair with his rebellious sister Lea’s non-Jewish roommate. Lea rethinks the religion she’s run from, strong enough to alter her father’s life, while Eli — the youngest Kahn — inherits his father’s long-forgotten legacy. Somehow, with the help of the uncle he never knew and his slowly re-awakening sister, he attempts to return faith and order to his family and community and reinstate his father’s good name. Neil Kleid, Xeric Award winning author of Ninety Candles and NBM’s Brownsville, and illustrator Nicolas Cinquegrani offer a drama about loss, lies, belief and renewal in this dramatic graphic exploration of a family secret so well-hidden, it questions the very nature of faith.
“A story about belief and truth—in gods, marriages, and selves. An interesting addition to all high school, community, and church libraries. Excellent for book clubs and study groups as well.” –ForeWord
“One of Hottest Graphic Novels for Summer.” –GraphicNovelReporter.com
6 x9, 176 pp., trade pb., B&W with color cover, $13.95
ISBN 978-1-56163-561-0

The book will appear about two weeks later on bookstore shelves. Buzz has been mounting with Neil interviewed by quite a few media. He wil be signing also his first book with NBM, the highly successful Brownsville.

THINGS UNDONE
Shane White
Foreword by Robert Kirkman
The author of the acclaimed “North Country” is back with a dark comedy. Despite Rick Watt’s best efforts to keep it together, he feels his life is falling apart, turning him into a zombie. After a cross-country move with girlfriend in tow, his fresh start turns into a festering mess. As a video game artist, Rick is subjected to the incompetence of three bosses and a kinky art director. His overactive imagination helps him cope until… his seven-year relationship tailspins and his ex takes flight with the guy across the parking lot. Other jobs and a new GF don’t look any better. Caught between his fantasy world and reality, Rick decides to pull the trigger.
With a foreword by Robert Kirkman, creator of the Walking Dead.
6×9, 80pp., 2 color trade pb.: $12.95, ISBN 978-1-56163-563-4

Geary’ Lindbergh on Girls Entertainment Network covering the Eisners

Covering the most important categories of the Eisner nominations, Girls Entertainment Network has this to say about Rick’s Lindbergh Child in his Treasury of XXth Century Murder which is up for two Awards:

“He gives us a step-by-step account of one of the most famous crimes in history: the Linbergh kidnapping. I’d heard of the case before, but here it’s laid out with every piece of evidence and every witness and suspect so well that I almost feel as if I had been living through it in 1932. I’m excited to see what subject or individual Geary takes a crack at next.” –Jill aka TheNerdyBird

The Eisner Awards will be given out next Friday at the San Diego Comic-con. Geary will be signing all his books at our booth #1528. See our signing schedule we posted earlier.
