Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked: Publishing News

By Tom Spurgeon

image* here's a profile of the comic books Abbott, a supernatural thriller which I missed word about and features the writer Saladin Ahmed working with artist Sami Kivelä. Ahmed's collaboration with artist Christian Ward on Marvel on the Black Bolt character was extremely well-received, a not-inconsiderable achievement given the Kirby/Lee Inhumans material has been hit and miss for Marvel the last several years.

* Birdcage Bottom Books is currently attempting to crowd-fund its 2018 season. That makes it a crowd-funding story and a publishing story, especially when I forgot to do the publishing story half.

* Steve Foxe talks to Jarrett Krosoczka and reveals the cover to the cartoonist's autobiographical Hey, Kiddo.

* here's an open call for submissions to the RSM anthology. That should run another couple of weeks. I don't have the time to vet every call for submissions, but obviously I won't post one about which I've heard anything dubious. As in all things comics, just be your usual careful.

* not comics: Fred Van Lente joins Robert Rodi as writers of comics that have written a murder mystery with a comic-con backdrop.

* finally: more Kane from Paul Grist is good news.
