It's Baseball All Over The Comics

As a sports comic fan, I'm excited about two forthcoming works by accomplished cartoonists profiling two great icons of baseball, and plan on buying and consuming both of them the moment they come out.

The second Center for Cartoon Studies biography for Hyperion will feature the great pitcher Satchel Paige, with The Golem Mighty Swing's James Sturm working with Rich Tommaso, one of those team-ups where you think about each cartoonist's past work and nod your head.

Via Flog! comes word on a promotional site put together by artist Wilfred Santiago for his forthcoming The Roberto Clemente Story, from Fantagraphics. Not only is this publishing news -- I know I hadn't heard about the title yet -- it's also worth noting the attractiveness of the site including its trailer when that kind of thing is still more talked about than done, and that the brief samples from the book look extremely promising.
