This Isn't A Library: New, Notable Releases Into Comics' Direct Market

*****

Here are the books that make an impression on me staring at this week's no-doubt largely accurate list of books shipping from Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc. to comic book and hobby shops across North America.

I might not buy all of the works listed here. I might not buy any. You never know. I'd sure look at the following, though.

The full list of this week's releases, including some titles with multiple cover variations and a long, impressive list of toys and other stuff that isn't comics, can be found here. Despite this official list there's no guarantee a comic will show up in the stores as promised, or in all of the stores as opposed to just a few. Also, stores choose what they carry and don't carry so your shop may not carry a specific publication. There are a lot of comics out there.

To find your local comic book store, check this list; and for one I can personally recommend because I've shopped there, albeit a while back, try this.

The above titles are listed with their Diamond order code in the first field, which may assist you in finding comics at your shop or having them order something for you they don't have in-stock. Ordering through a direct market shop can be a frustrating experience, so if you have a direct line to something -- you know another shop has it, you know a bookstore has it -- I'd urge you to consider all of your options.

If I failed to list your comic, that's because I hate you.

Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* John Seven on It's Cold In The River At Night. Alex Hoffman on The Pervert. Tom Murphy on Anti-Gone. Charles Hatfield on 5 Worlds: The Sand Warrior.

* not comics: Marvel doesn't want to tip their hand as to the shape of their movie series until after Avengers 4, to best take advantage of the mystery caused by a lot of actors that are key to those movies coming to their contractual end. I hadn't thought of it, but this would have an effect on the big conventions where subject announcements are made.

* meanwhile, over at TCJ, the great Michael Tisserand tells one of the great stories in comics history, that of cartoonist Eugene XXX.

* finally: on the challenges facing the Direct Market. By "challenge," this article means "way to die."

Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked: Publishing News

By Tom Spurgeon

image* Drew Friedman unveils his cover for Jon B Cooke's big book about the series Weirdo. That's a fine R. Crumb, but a choice young Peter Bagge.

* Danica Novgorodoff will do four graphic novels in conjunction with a theater company's new season.

* this feels like propping something up for a shot at selling television/film right more than a long-term print plan, but that's a fun-enough property, I guess.

* I don't think someone just doing a video trailer for a comic is news anymore, but I'm happy to see a new Hope Larson book and sites excited about that fact.

* finally, a little bit of not comics: didn't know that Cathy Guisewite had a new book of prose essays out, and I'm interested in the result.

Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Ally Russell on Godhead.

* I hate the headline here; Michael Cavna checks in with the cartoonist.

* here's a short report from the MariNaomi/Tillie Walden/Pamela Ribon panel organized by the LAT Book Festival over the weekend.

* here's a selection of recommended graphic memoirs. Not everything that Alison Bechdel and Lynda Barry are graphic memoirs, but the enthusiasm for those they've done is apparent.

* this walk through Jesse Jacobs' work is quite fun. At this point, I'll read everything Jacobs does with impatient curiosity.

* finally: a recap of #FanCon from a devoted, close watcher.

Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* in case you missed it, an on-line fundraiser to send money directly to William and Nadine Messner-Loebs has been established. I hope that they get the cushion they need to live safely and securely, and this could help facilitate that. The previous gofundme for the longtime mainstream comics writer and one-time indie comics cartoonist, the one that went up right when the story was reported, was for a charitable group that was helping the comics pair and others. I also hope that someone from that group or from comics can step in and help the couple with advice and perspective; I suspect there are issues involved that an influx of money won't completely help. The best of luck to that talented man and his beloved partner, though; I hope all that can and are moved to do so will give generously.

* here's a prison librarian hoping for a GN and genre book build-up of their resources. No answer as of yet if they're accepting any comics an author wants to send or if it's preferred that it goes/has to go through the linked-to Amazon list. I worked with a prison library 100 years ago and things can be very specific.

* the ambitious campaign by Retrofit to fund 12 books at apprxoximately $3000 per book could use some definite help. I've seen bigger last week's but not a lot of them. I know at least three of these books will be swell and I'm sure others will, too. We need to have a talk at some point about our expectations regarding publisher-involved crowd-funders but I'm not sure how to facilitate that.

* finally, Sloane Leong is looking for help to get to Angouleme and participate in a residency. That would be nice to see happen.

Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Marc-Oliver Frisch on comics by Olivia Vieweg. Sue Carter on Love That Bunch.

* congrats to Steve Sack on winning a Minnesota Book Award.

* I thought this cartoon might gain some traction. I don't think that sentimental is the only way to do cartoons about public figures, but a lot of people do and one that hits right almost always becomes popular.

* finally: a high-quality print of Will Elder's amazing "A Visit To Grandma's" is available until Friday. If I had $150 to spare on a print this week, it'd go to one. Elder was an amazing artist, a sneaky spot-holder on the top 20 of the 20th Century.
