Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked: Publishing News

* it's nice to see the writer Dan Slott enjoy stepping down from his long tenure as Spider-Man writer and into a gig working with the Lee/Lieber/Heck/Kirby Iron Man character published by Marvel. Those are still the dream gigs for many creators out there, much as I might personally prefer it otherwise.

* sticking with Marvel, the publisher has signed the writer Kelly Thompson to an exclusive contract, which sounds like a smart move for both sides.

* Aftershock receives word on what one of its foundational creative deals will yield as a first book.

* looks like in June we get about 600 pages of Larry Marder's Beanworld work for $25, which sounds like a nice format for an authoritative collection of Marder's lifelong creative work.

* finally: that's a very cute Jaime Hernandez cover.
