Word from the small press comics legend John Porcellino posted to his web site on his forthcoming publishing plans, which he was kind enough to unpack and translate as follows:
* Drawn and Quarterly will be publishing a new edition of his out-of-print Highwater Books collection Perfect Example in Fall 2005.
* Zak Sally's La Mano will publish Diary of a Mosquito Abatement Man in early 2005, which will include mosquito stories from 10 years of Porcellino's seminal mini-comic King-Cat Comics and Stories.
* Sometime in 2005 Ego Comme X will publish a French-language book to be called Moon Lake Trails. It will consist of much of the material in Perfect Example and a few added stories.
* The next issue of King-Cat Comics and Stories will be a giant-sized issue featuring the 60-page "Last Days at the Old House" effort, and should also be out early in 2005.
A favorite of his cartooning peers, Porcellino may be the most widely-admired comics talent to emerge from the mini-comics scene, where he still does the bulk of his initial publishing. An example of his approach to comics can be found here.
