Bundled, Tossed, Untied & Stacked: Publishing News

By Tom Spurgeon

image* I like to cover books in advance because I don't like having missed something, but I had no idea we'd be seeing this giant tome from cartoonist Gabby Schulz. That's good news, though, despite my failure at a fundamental aspect of my job.

* looks like we're due to see a relaunch for the classic Harvey characters.

* there's a new comic series on the way from Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn. My recollection is that several readers were fond of their Alex + Ada.

* I find the whole world of digital media stars sort of fascinating, but there's no hitch-step in fully realizing these folks are just as popular as their film, broadcast TV and cable TV peers. This will include comics.

* PW explores some of the various bottom lines that characterize right now for IDW. That's a company not only playing the long game, but they're using a different rule book for much of what they do. Even the way they do TV/film is different.

* here's a survey-style list of Spring books that ran at PW.

* this article is fairly thorough in plotting out future comics-related plans involving author Margaret Atwood.

* finally, Sophie Goldstein's well-liked House Of Women series will be collected by Fantagraphics this Fall.
