SEQUENTIAL Releases New NBM Titles as Part of US Expansion



SEQUENTIAL, the graphic novel storefront and reader app focused on literary graphic novels, has announced that it has released a main tranche of titles by pioneering art comics and graphic novel publisher NBM. Titles now available on SEQUENTIAL from NBM include:

• Science: A Discovery in Comics and Philosophy: A Discovery in Comics by Margreet de Heer 
• Abelard, Betty Blues, and Bubbles and Gondola by Renaud Dillies 
• Zombillenium by Arthur de Pins (soon to be made into a feature film)
• Happy Hooligan by Frederick B. Opper (a special collection of the classic early 20th century strip)
• Madison Square Tragedy by Rick Geary

amongst others.

These NBM titles have been released as part of SEQUENTIAL's expanded catalogue which now includes US publishers such as Fantagraphics and Secret Acres.

NBM founder and publisher Terry Nantier said, “SEQUENTIAL's aim to curate a quality selection of literary graphic novels and try to reach a general audience is one we share; we're delighted to have our titles available on their app.”

Released in August 2013, SEQUENTIAL is focused on book format art comics and literary graphic novels. It rejects mainstream superhero fare and has been offering titles from UK publishers including Jonathan Cape, Knockabout, Myriad Editions, SelfMadeHero and Blank Slate Books. It has recently started adding major US-based graphic novel publishers to its list.

SEQUENTIAL founder Russell Willis said, “We are thrilled to be able to add these NBM titles to the app and will be adding even more shortly. NBM was the first publisher of graphic novels in the US, and has played a significant part in expanding the horizons of the form."

In addition to creators from NBM, the app features the work of Alan Moore, Brian Bolland, David Lloyd, Eddie Campbell, Ellen Lindner, Hunt Emerson, Isabel Greenberg, Jaime Hernandez, Nick Abadzis, Rutu Modan, Winshluss and many, many more.
