Graphic-novel publishers to unveil new projects at U.S. book industry’s biggest annual event

Graphic-novel house NBM Publishing and its sister company, the children’s publisher Papercutz, will reveal new projects at Book Expo America (BEA). The trade show, the largest annual event in American book publishing, will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on May 29 through June 1.

NBM’s booth, #725, stands in Hall H of the convention center’s South Hall in the Publishers Marketing Association section. Among the projects that NBM will have on display:

Moresukine: Uploaded Weekly from Tokyo by Dirk Schwieger. When Schwieger drew a comics blog of his life in Tokyo, his readers dared him to do all sorts of things — exotic, disgusting, revealing — and he obeyed! This fascinating, funny, funky collection looks inside Japanese society, life, thought, and food.

Why I Killed Peter by Alfred and Olivier Ka. The author retells his childhood experience with a priest who went too far. It’s an intense yet nuanced, gray-area graphic novel on an extremely topical subject, poignantly and sensitively told.

Plus Dungeon: Monsters, the latest in the popular series by Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar; Happy Hooligan, a deluxe collection of the classic (and crazy!) comic strip; Nocturnal Conspiracies: Nineteen Dreams by David B (Epileptic), a surreal collection of nighttime fantasies; and Miss Don’t Touch Me by Hubert & Kerascoet, a tale that only the French can offer — suspenseful and spicy yet deep and real.

Papercutz, also in the South Hall, is at #1552, with the Macmillan group. Papercutz will reveal new editions of the best-selling BIONICLE graphic novels, based on the popular LEGO toys—not to mention series such as Tales From The Crypt, Classics Illustrated, Nancy Drew, and The Hardy Boys.
