NBM Publishing Announces SPX Debuts and Creator Appearances

In anticipation of next weekend’s Small Press Expo held on September 10th & 11th in Bethesda, Maryland (near Washington DC),  NBM Publishing has announced the company’s plans for their annual appearance and special releases.

Stargazing Dog

NBM can be found at table G7-8.

We will be premiering hot off the press our very first manga, the moving and inspiring Japanese best-seller Stargazing Dog. It’s sold over a half million copies in Japan and been made into a movie there just released this summer. See the preview of pages.

Daddy is down and out. Life has conspired against him, everything coming undone.

Fed up, he sets out with his car to just get away from it all to nowhere in particular.

All people around him have abandoned him in indifference but as we discover along with him, the one companion he can count on utterly and completely is his dog who follows him blindly, faithfully and completely, to the end.

Inner Sanctum by Ernie Colon

The other special we’ll have for the show is a preview of Ernie Colon’s Inner Sanctum with signed copies including a free signed sketch by Colon for the 1st 20 to buy!

A revered veteran of comics brings to comics life one of the most fondly re membered mystery and horror radio shows in history.

In striking black & white as only Colon is well known for, we are swept into 4 chilling mysteries including: The Horla, Death of a Doll, The Undead and Alive in the Grave.

 

Also, appearing at our booth:

Brooke A. Allen with A Home for Mr. Easter

Ted Rall

The irrepressible Rick Parker signing the Papercutz spoofs of Harry Potter, Twilight and Percy Jackson

Jesse Lonergan


We’ll have a good choice of recent books available there as well. Find us at G7-8, come say hello! Publisher Terry Nantier will be there and happy to chat with you.
