Museum Vaults Excerpts From Journal Of An Expert SC

By Marc-Antoine Mathieu

The Museum Vaults is the newest volume from NBM’s ComicsLit imprint in
co-publication with the Louvre museum.

An art assessor must evaluate the vast collections of the Louvre in an
alternate Kafkaesque world where all is warehoused in an endless
ever-deepening succession of basement levels. Mathieu, an artist who
marries Escher with Kafka, brings stinging irony to the pompousness of
art history.

NBM’s first Louvre volume – the popular Glacial Period – went back to
press quickly, and The Museum Vaults is an equally stunning volume.

Castaways SC

By Rob Vollmar & Pablo Callejo

Now in paperback! The first graphic novel by the best-selling team
behind Bluesman.

An emotionally powerful tale, drawn from the fabric of America
itself, that follows the adventures of young Tucker Freeman as he is
compelled to hop a train to escape from the crippling poverty of his
rural existence. Armed with only fifteen cents and the memory of his
hobo father’s counsel, Tucker must find his place in this broken
America of the Great Depression before the realities of being young,
poor, and homeless consume him.

This new NBM/ComicsLit edition of THE CASTAWAYS features a six-page
conclusion/epilogue not featured in the original release as well as a
new two-color look. It will stand as THE definitive edition of a book
nominated for an Eisner in the Best Single Issue/One Shot category, an
epic adventure recalling the works of Mark Twain, Jack London, and John
Steinbeck.

Here’s some of the press on the virtually sold-out hardcover edition:
“An attractive expanded and color-enhanced version. Vollmar’s script,
based on family reminiscences, rings true. Callejo’s art creates a
solid setting in which Tucker’s experience can reveal squalor or
grace.” — Publishers Weekly
“There’s enough suspense and atmosphere here to make anyone grip their
chair and feel transported.” — Los Angeles Times
“Writer Rob Vollmar imagines a place rich in meaning and menace; Pablo
G. Callejo’s expressive B&W images give it vibrancy.” — Entertainment
Weekly
“Beautiful, powerful vision of a different era. Even readers reluctant
to pick up a book about American history will be pulled into this
adventure of deep longing and honor.” — Booklist

Treasury Victorian Murder Vol. 4 Fatal Bullet New Printing

By Rick Geary

It was the first assassination of one of our presidents by an
obsessive-compulsive stalker, a deluded loser who thought his action
would bring him national glory. Going beyond a mere presentation of
facts, the author surreptitiously peels back a bit of the national
psyche.
