Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked: Publishing News


By Tom Spurgeon

* Characters, the latest from Paper Rocket Press, is imminent: it debuts February 1.

image* good news from Lauren Weinstein about continuing progress on her book.

* there's a second Aquaman series coming because... actually, I have no idea what that means, but it's sort of terrifying.

* here's a general update from one of our best cartoonists, John Porcellino.

* Trillium will be collected in August.

* I don't know that I'm all the way certain what this is, or why it's in my bookmarks, but I sure like pictures of boats.

* I'm always a little uncomfortable when a presentation of genre comics is presented as comics entire, because there's a wider range of work out there than gets portrayed in such pieces, but it's a good time for comics of that type, too, and I look forward to reading a lot of these books.

* Jessica Abel, Matt Madden and Lewis Trondheim did a comic for the Patte De Mouche collection at L'Asso.

* there's word of Michael DeForge and Pascal Girard projects among other in the "Graphica" section of this Quill & Quire report, including word that Chizine Publications is doing a line of graphic novels starting in 2015, to be sneak previewed this year with a work by Vincent Marcone.

* I'm all for Marvel pushing and pulling a bit with its second-tier characters, particularly if they aren't working for them in their standard form, so bring on this oddball-looking Moon Knight. I'm less happy with the goofy numbering -- I just have to think this makes no sense to anyone not at the shop every single Wednesday and fully engaged with those comics at their point of publication -- on this Daredevil comic, although that's been a solid performer for Marvel creatively for years now.

* nice to see Reprodukt tweeting out the cover for its version of Hilda And The Bird Parade.

* finally, Rob Davis released a cover image for his Fall 2014 SelfMadeHero release.
