Random Comics News Story Round Up

image* Tony Isabella remembers Steve Gerber with a brief note. Gerber was a very interesting creator and his legacy looks better every year. I still get a thrill when I see the old Howard stuff. Pop culture worked way differently back then.

* did we talk about John Jennings getting an imprint and a checkbook for the imprint by Abrams? I think we did. It's worth noting again that one aspect of this is Abrams has been so disciplined as a publisher in terms of the number of books it publishers. So for them to go for a whole line, they must be very high on Jennings and what he has planned. Good luck to all involved.

* bundled extra: Oni Press announces a new book with Katie O'Neill. Certainly people have been delighted by the two existing works mentioned in the article.

* Chris Gavaler on Chlorine Gardens. Here's someone at Kirkus Review on The Best American Comics 2018.

* go, read: Hannah Williams provides an alternate and thrilling basic reading of the Moomin stories.

* this one damn funny tweet.

* I'm not sure I heard about the Monir/Nowak micro press, but I'm excited to follow the Twitter account and learn more.

* Nicholas Dekker profiles Bryan Christopher Moss.

* festivals extra: I'm not sure why I bookmarked this photo given that it's already fired through our social media, but that's a great look on Jeff's face as he picks up a couple of honors at the end of CXC 2018. I'm right around the corner, by the way. I realized I was blocking the view of those kids.

* finally: not sure how I get to this Etsy shop, or who it belongs to even, but I like the looks of this print.

Festivals Extra: Billy Ireland Announces Barbara Shermund And Latinx Comics Exhibits For Galleries

image
image

Announcement here. That's a nice pairing. The Latinx exhibit draws on OSU professor Frederick Aldama's work in that area. I've not seen a bunch of Shermund, so that should be a treat as well, and I've enjoyed past shows with which Caitlin McGurk has been involved.

The party for the former is November 3, while the party for the latter will come in 2019. The exhibits will run through March 2019.
