Bundled, Tossed, Untied, Stacked: Publishing News

By Tom Spurgeon

image* Sean Phillips discusses and shows cover art from his next project with writer Ed Brubaker, the published-as-a-single-volume My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies. That's due in October. That Kill Or Be Killed art he did with Elizabeth Breitweiser providing colors might have been the best-looking work in Phillips' career-to-date.

* Sam Kieth will be doing a Maxx/Batman crossover series starting in September. Most of the interesting cartoonists under 35 share at least one period of obsession with Kieth's work.

* Shing Yin Khor has announced a new deal. All congratulations.

* not comics: this photo is an amazing item of evidence in The Case Of The Imploding Newspaper Industry. How anyone expects information delivery to work AT ALL with this kind of basic disruption and turnover is beyond me.

* I still can't believe they didn't come up with a better refashioning of the X-Men part of the Marvel line than a roll-out that seems like any one of the last half-dozen rollouts. Literally the titles are starting to be straight-up derivative of other very specific titles now. With readership declining I don't know how this isn't a death sentence if not corrected.

* finally: congratulations to Bruce Worden on his newly-announced publishing deal.
