* there will be a tribute publication at San Diego Con's Exhibit A Press booth featuring the late cartoonist and all-time gentleman of comics, Batton Lash. It's been a while since I had a definitive first stop at the show, but it looks like I have one this year.

* I'm seeing graphic novels on the new books list from Naval Institute Press. September brings us an English-language translation of Once Upon A Time In France from Fabien Nury and Sylvain Vallée. That's a massive 368-page softcover for $29.95. ISBN is 9781682474716. In October comes Smedley from Pennsylvania's Jeff McComsey. That's 176 pages, $26.95 findable through ISBN number 9781682472767 about an ex-marine running for the Senate in 1932. I don't see proper publishes links for these, but I'm certain they're coming.

* another small publisher with the occasional comics offering is Haymarket Books. their latest catalog lists Missing Daddy by Mariame Kaba and bria royal; it's about the absence a young girl feels for her father in prison. royal is the artist. That comes out in early September for $16.95. It's a hardcover and the ISBN is 9781642590364.
