Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked: Publishing News


By Tom Spurgeon

* Conundrum Press has posted an announcement of what looks like an extremely solid Fall 2014. In order posted, the works that will arrive by Christmas are One Year in America, Elisabeth Belliveau; Loiterers, Simon Bossé; Happy Stories About Well-Adjusted People: An Ollmann Omnibus, Joe Ollmann; Milo & Sam, Joe Ollmann and Andy Brown; The Train, Chihoi, adapted from a short story by Hung Hung. The Chihoi adaptation has already been published in a couple of markets, apparently, and is good news for fans of The Library. You can read full descriptions over there, and should rather than reading me parrot them.

image* a few of you have written me about this subscription plan for a Derek Van Gieson mini-series. That would seem like a pretty good bet to me.

* looks like they'll be bundling the Hip Hop Family Tree series for maximum giftage. That first book is up to a third printing now.

* we should get more Copra next month, and I couldn't be happier.

* Patrick Dean lets us know that Cold Crew is finished.

* Chris Burnham is doing some new art for an absolute edition of the Batman Incorporated material. That should be a lovely book. It sounds like a specific kind of page is being re-done.

* looks like Oh My Goddess! is wrapping things up.

* I like a lot of the individual collections that Marvel does when I see them. A friend of mine has a bunch in his library. They do a really good job with extensive chunks of material. The Masterworks program isn't a program I tend to enjoy as much as some of the others, but I know some kids that love them, and I'm happy to see some thought given to how the classic material is presented even if getting that into readers' hands isn't a major priority for the company.

* not comics: I wasn't aware that Jeet Heer had an essay collection out soon. He's been quite well-published recently. Nice cover.

* finally, this fine John Kerscbaum image will cover a Birdcage Bottom book called Cringe, out for SPX.
