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

Ted Rall appears on Tuesday, October 19th, 2010 from 7:00PM-9:00PM
Visit the Cartoon Art Museum on Tuesday, October 19th at 7pm for a presentation and book-signing by nationally syndicated political cartoonist Ted Rall. Rall will talk about his new book, The Anti-American Manifesto, a new manifesto for an America heading toward economic and political collapse.
Hailed as “…the most controversial cartoonist in America” by Cartoon.com, Rall has worked as an opinion columnist, graphic novelist, and occasional war correspondent whose work has appeared in hundreds of publications, including the New York Times, Washington Post, Village Voice, and Los Angeles Times. The suggested donation for this event is $5, although no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
About The Anti-American Manifesto:
While others mourn the damage to the postmodern American capitalist system created by the recent global economic collapse, Ted Rall sees an opportunity. As millions of people lose their jobs and their homes, they and millions more are opening their minds to the possibility of creating a radically different form of government and economic infrastructure. Right-wing extremists are best prepared to fill the power vacuum from a collapsing United States. The best way to stop them, Rall argues, is not collapse—but revolution. Not by other people, but by us. Not in the future, but now.
THE ANTI-AMERICAN MANIFESTO, Ted Rall, Columbus Day, 2010, 978-1-58322-933-0, $15.95 | 5 x 7 | 288 pages
About Ted Rall:
Twice the winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Rall was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1963. He attended Columbia University’s School of Engineering, where he drew cartoons for the Columbia Daily Spectator, Barnard Bulletin and The Jester humor magazine. Inspired after meeting pop artist Keith Haring in a Manhattan subway station in 1986, Rall began posting his cartoons on New York City streets. He eventually picked up 12 small clients, including NY Weekly and a poetry review in Halifax, Nova Scotia, through self-syndication. In 1996 he joined with Universal Press Syndicate.
His cartoons now appear in more than 100 publications around the United States, including the Los Angeles Times, Tucson Weekly, Willamette Week, Newark Star-Ledger, Village Voice, and New York Times. In addition, Rall hosted a highly-rated talk show on KFI Radio in Los Angeles and on KFIR-FM (106.9 Free FM) San Francisco. He has also served as president of the Association of Editorial Cartoonists from 2008-2009.
Rall is the author of numerous fiction and nonfiction books including the graphic novel, The Year of Loving Dangerously (2009), which Publishers Weekly called, “A gorgeous whirlwind of a memoir,” and the nonfiction titles To Afghanistan and Back (2002), which was an ALA Best Book of the Year, and Silk Road to Ruin (2006). Rall is currently reporting from Afghanistan—a trip funded by his fans via the website Kickstarter.com. He lives in New York.
