Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked
By Tom Spurgeon
* hey, there's a new Kevin Huizenga mini-comic out
. These other two new minis
feature Huizenga work as well.
* if I'm reading this correctly
, the Dargaud effort on behalf of DC will be called "Urban Comics."
* Darryl Cunningham has finished the guts of his next book
* Paul Gravett walks us through
major November releases.
* I don't run as much webcomics-related publishing news as I should. Here's a press release
about a site designed to foster lists of webcomics users are reading, I think so that others might pick up comics to read from those lists. Here's a webcomic I hadn't seen before, Peter Quach's Freedman
* this forthcoming Forbes
-published biography of a segment of Steve Jobs' life has sure been getting a lot of promotional mentions
, but I guess it's worth noting that it's coming out.
* me wanty department: Dynamite is doing a Howard Chaykin art book
* it's not comics, but any new magazine called Illustrators
will be welcome around my house.

of a long-delayed graphic novel featuring the Man-Thing
character by the late writer Steve Gerber and the artist Kevin Nowlan.
* Geoff Grogan posts
a bunch of updates as to future plans.

, in support of his Icarus
* Ed Piskor's Wizzywig has finished up its on-line serialization and will be published on paper by Top Shelf next year
* Sean Philips is showing off work
, a forthcoming project with Ed Brubaker.
* I guess some folks might laugh at Marvel angling to get the character Valkyrie over in some fashion
, but they've done a good job managing certain characters that way, she has a nice look and decent skill-set, and that company could use a few more B-list female protagonists.
* Johanna Draper Carlson caught
that Sarah Becan is giving away the sixth issue of her Shuteye
series to owners of issues #1-5.
* finally, Chris Arrant places into context
an imminent, translated-to-English work by the artist Trevor Hairsine.
