The cartoonist Paul Karasik has announced a second volume collecting the works of Golden Age comic book artist Fletcher Hanks, to be titled You Shall Die By Your Own Evil Creation! Because of fortunate archival discoveries in the circle of collectors with whom Karasik has been working in terms of getting all the material on hand, the second volume will combine with the first to make up a "complete works" collection of the cartoonist's powerful and affecting comics. The first volume, I Shall Destroy All The Civilized Planets, was a surprise hit for publisher Fantagraphics in 2007, leading the publisher's sales at Comic-Con International in San Diego. It won a best archival collection Eisner at this weekend's show. It is tentatively scheduled for a 2009 release.
