Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked


By Tom Spurgeon

* above is the cover image for the Renee French/PictureBox limited Fall release debuting at SPX. It looks nice, doesn't it? She'll be there for the debut.

image* the cartoonist Rich Tommaso released this cover image on this Facebook page, although I'm not sure everyone can see it or not there so I dragged it onto here.

* did you know there were new issues yet to come of the Joe Casey/Mike Huddleston effort Butcher Baker, The Righteous Maker? I don't think I did. I thought it was done. It figures that a mainstream title that demented and odd might leave some of us -- well, me, anyway -- befuddled as to when or if it was ending. Anyway, Casey was handing out cards at the San Diego Con encouraging everyone to just wait, and there'd be more to come.

* Warren Ellis would like to publish your three-panel comics.

* sad to hear that Amazing Facts... and Beyond! has ended.

* you may have to squint to join me in seeing this as publishing news, but I'm sort of super-intrigued by this list of books that the Stuart Ng people brought home from Comic-Con a couple of weeks ago:

That's a heck of a shopping list, and a reminder as to how much stuff gets published in terms of art books and the like related to comics, not just comics.

* good news: Kate Beaton intends to publish those long-form comics she's been doing. They've been really good, so that's something to look forward to.

* finally, there's a new Dame Darcy book coming out next month from Henry Holt. It's text with illustrations as opposed to comics, but I'm always happy to see new work from the Dame.
