Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked


By Tom Spurgeon

* Leslie Stein is working on an Oily Comic. I hope it's okay I show it here. I want everyone to buy it. She's great and those minis are a lot of fun.

image* Sean Gaffney has a round-up of licensing announcements from San Diego earlier this month.

* sad news from Derf Backderf that his The City, an almost quarter-century veteran of the alt-comics strip world, will no longer appear in Cleveland's Plain Dealer publication.

* the writer Gail Simone will take on scripting duties for Dark Horse's Tomb Raider series.

* here's an interesting model: curated graphic novel delivery.

* if you want to see why people will miss the late Kim Thompson, check out all of the books that has spit out with a May 2014 date that have Thompson's fingerprints on them if not an outright credit. That's an astonishing list of comics. I'm sure that there's a very good chance we don't see some of those books.

* we're apparently getting more Resident Alien, so that's good.

* I believe this is the first time I've seen something out there that indicates The Complete Cul-De-Sac will be pushed into 2014. My understanding is that Richard Thompson needs more time with the annotations. God bless that good man Richard Thompson.

* finally, that talented young cartoonist Joseph Remnant will apparently have a new issue of his one-man anthology Blindspot out for SPX. Now's a good time in general to jump on-line and check out your favorite small-press creator's on-line headquarters and see what they have coming up concerning that show.
