Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked: Publishing News


By Tom Spurgeon

* books about travel destinations from Louis Vuitton where an illustrator acts as a visuals provider and general guide may sound kind of dubious on a first pass, but then you read "Lorenzo Mattotti" in conjunction with the book on Vietnam and if you're like me you want that book immediately. I loved Angkor, so if the visuals included are anything like that, sign me up.

image* this looks like a lot of fun. I have no idea what it is, but it looks like a lot of fun.

* a preview of Ciudad.

* Richard Bruton provides a preview of Lucy Knisley's forthcoming comics work Age Of License by showing a bunch of nice-looking work from other sources. And a cover. Bruton is right, though, in that Knisley has a really appealing visual style.

* Andrew White provides a brief update as to Comics Workbook Magazine #5.

* looks like there will be an exhibition catalog for the Bill Watterson exhibit currently up at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. I bet that will be fun, and I imagine there's every chance that Watterson will fully participate as much as he been supportive of the show.

* Evan Dorkin shares one reason the next Eltingville comic is a little late.

* here's a preview of Jeff Weigel's Dragon Girl. And here's a preview of Ice Cream Kisses from Blaise Larmee.

* the 2D Cloud-published Detrimental Information previewed here.

* Zainab Akhtar reminds that Archaia is to continue publishing Sergio Toppi.

* Dark Horse is going back to press on the first print trade for Bandette.

* finally, there's a nice piece here from Rob McMonigal about all the various literary properties with which Dynamite has fashioned some sort of deal. I always liked the original cover for Shaft, by Mozelle Thompson. That's not the best reproduction of it, but you get the idea. Thompson was a cool artist.
