Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked: Publishing News
By Tom Spurgeon
* here's a nice article on how Matt Wagner plans to end his Mage series at the conclusion of this third cycle -- at least in a publishing sense. I'm very happy for Wagner to get this work completed, not everyone is lucky enough or determined to see this happen. Thirty-five years! My god. The first cycle was an important series for me as a mid-teen because of the vibrant, non-traditional art driving an action-adventure story. That may not seem like much, but comics readers that came of age in the 1970s and 1980s had to deal with some absolutely rigid presuppositions.
