Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked: Publishing News

By Tom Spurgeon

image* from that comics-friendly publication -- I think they're still a publication -- Entertainment Weekly comes a bunch of early cover and content reveals from First Second. Graham Annable!

* congratulations to Faith Erin Hicks, whose personal project The Nameless City has sold out its advance. That is a big deal for any author.

* I've been reminded by people that the "Fresh Start" era at Marvel begins this month. You can read what Marvel will be publishing in any of the solicitation analyses that came out in February. They are putting their best foot forward, but they did with most of the previous soft relaunches; it's issue #21 not issue #1 that's been a recent problem at Marvel. I suspect this more conservative approach will stabilize things and give them a small bump, even; how much structural harm has been done in comics by all of these short-term publishing choices should become evident by Fall.

* finally: here is an excerpt from Jessica Campbell's imminent XTC69.
