From Wikipedia:

Nantier Beall Minoustchine Publishing Inc. (or NBM Publishing) is an American graphic novel publisher. Founded by Terry Nantier in 1976 as Flying Buttress Publications, NBM is one of the oldest graphic novel publishers in North America.

Flying Buttress was among the first to introduce the concept of the European graphic novel to American audiences. Their first title was Racket Rumba (1977), a 50-page spoof of the noir-detective genre, written and drawn by the French artist Loro. The company followed this with Enki Bilal's The Call of the Stars (1978).
