Official Press Release
In anticipation of Comic-Con International: San Diego 2011, NBM Publishing today announced the company’s Comic-Con exclusives, including an exclusive preview of INNER SANCTUM as well as several upcoming books making their debut at the show.
A Treasury of XXth Century Murder: The Lives of Sacco & Vanzetti
Rick Geary tackles the most controversial case of the 20th century. Anarchists Sacco & Vanzetti were accused of robbery and murder but so many supposedly damning pieces of evidence were questionable their guilty verdict elicited massive protests around the world. Geary presents us with all the twists and turns, appeals and dubious evidence after presenting us the human face of the two men, demonized by many, turned to martyrs by many others in his usual unflappable way.
Besides Geary signing the regular clothbound edition, there will also be an edition limited to only 25 copies and available only directly from NBM of which some copies will be available at this show. Geary is a nominee for an Eisner this year for his last Treasury tome: The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans.
