Pioneering graphic novel publisher NBM Publishing has kicked off its 40th anniversary with a new logo and a redesigned website.
Along with those changes comes the news that the company has dissolved its ComicsLit literary imprint, with those titles becoming part of the NBM brand.
“The former NBM logo, with a design akin to comics panels, has served valiantly for decades,” NBM founder Terry Nantier said in a statement, “but nothing lasts forever and it’s time for a cleaner, lighter, more modern look.”
“ComicsLit also was an imprint we needed to launch over 15 years ago to distinguish our fiction line, but that’s much of what NBM stands for anyway today,” he continued. “We’re keeping things simple under one name and emphasizing our core mission all these years where comic books from us have been rare: publishing great graphic novels.”
In its 40th year, NBM will release work from such creators as Lewis Trondheim, Joann Sfar, David Prudhomme, Jirô Taniguchi, Sean Michael Wilson and Michiru Morikawa, Annie Goetzinger and Rodolphe, Stanislas, Nicolas Keramidas, A. Dan, and Maximilien Le Roy.
