Bundled, Tossed, Untied & Stacked: Publishing News

By Tom Spurgeon

image* veteran cartoonist Rina Piccolo is ending her long-running Tina's Groove to partner with Hilary Price on Rhymes With Orange. Congratulations to Piccolo on that run, and it sounds like a fruitful partnership to me. The strip began its run in 2002, so this fits into a standard 10 year plus five more years pattern for a strip.

* here's a look at Rich Tommaso's Spy Seal in advance of August.

* Marvel teased big news last week which I and many others thought might be content-related but it was a "cover reveal" through several sites in support of an upcoming focused-on-the-past event initiative combining new and old Marvel concepts. Heidi and the gang collected a bunch of them here. Maybe all of them. There are many fine artists working on this for Marvel, but this wasn't flattering to the bulk involved.

* no matter how many comics you know, there are always more comics.

* there is apparently a new Robotech comic. I liked those cartoons when I was a kid; I can't imagine wanting any more than they already gave us, but I'm sure fervent fans disagree.

* finally, a change in gigs for Martin Rowson.
