When Joshua Barker takes his life, he finds that nothing ends in death. Instead, Joshua wakes up in a city that seems to consist of decayed factories, crumbled apartment buildings and very little else. There, he encounters the strange Elmer, a man who seems to know a great deal about him and finds that he may have a special calling. Together they set out through the fallen city, among prostitutes and rotten angels — trying to find an elusive God. In Christian Westerlund and Robert Nazeby Herzig, Angel Skin launches two new exciting talents.

Glacial Period, the first graphic novel from Paris’ Louvre Museum, sold out its first printing swiftly and now has a second printing available. The tale, from NBM’s ComicsLit imprint, is set millennia from now in a glacial period where all human history has been forgotten. A group of archeologists find the Louvre and cannot begin to explain the artifacts they see. Their interpretations are nonsensical, absurd, and farcical.
NBM has sold more than 4,000 copies since the end of 2006. If you missed this odd, thought-provoking graphic novel, make sure to get it now!
