LITTLE NOTHINGS: THE PRISONER SYNDROME
By Lewis Trondheim
The author of DUNGEON, A.L.I.E.E.E.N., and MR. O returns with a second collection of his comics blog. Drawing himself as a duck-headed everyman, Trondheim portrays the problems of work, travel and other aspects of modern life with warm humor. You can see samples at www.nbmpub.com/news/littlenothingblog.html.
Some reviews for the first Little Nothings collection:
• “Quirky, cute, and yet microdetailed with the inflections of a peculiar life, Little Nothings is a hoot.” — The Onion
• “Beautifully scribbled strips center on such existential hiccups as extreme self-doubt, spontaneous superstitions and unjustified paranoia.” — The Washington Post
• “One is left feeling comforted by the shared absurdities of life in the 21st century. A charmingly lighthearted stroll through life.” — Publishers Weekly
• ”Extraordinary artist.” — Booklist
Full-color trade paperback, 6” x 9”, 128 pages, $14.95, ISBN 978-1-56163-548-1
NEW from NBM’s Eurotica imprint:
By Sybilline, Dave McKean, Cyril Pedrosa, Olivier Vatine, and others
Dave McKean (Neil Gaiman’s Coraline, Sandman, and The Graveyard Book) contributes one of this book’s 10 hot stories about first (sexual) times. The adventures range from simply having sex to having very different sex (e.g., going beyond a mere twosome, or the woman strapping it on for her man, or…) — all from the woman’s point of view and all written by Sybilline, a woman with decidedly spicy ideas! The art comes from leading European artists, including Cyril Pedrosa (Three Shadows), Olivier Vatine (Aquablue) and, of course, Dave McKean. First Time is a beautifully stylish yet unabashedly hardcore collection of true erotica presented in a handsome jacketed edition.
Black-and-white jacketed hardcover, 8 ½” x 11”, 112 pages, $19.95, ISBN 978-1-56163-549-8
