Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked

* PictureBox Inc. is doing a collection of Sammy Harkham's work this Fall; cover is above. According to Dan Nadel, it will contain "all his anthology pieces, shorts from Crickets 1 & 2, as well as longer pieces like Poor Sailor and Somersaulting. It's set to debut in September at SPX.

image* Hope Larson talks details on her forthcoming adaptation of beloved children's prose classic A Wrinkle In Time.

* did I ever link to Seconds? I feel like I did, but maybe I didn't. Similarly, I'm pretty sure I've never done anything related to The Adventures Of Wally Fresh, but there it is.

* according to links on those sites that post every possible book that's about to be for sale alongside books that are for sale, and also according to the cartoonist herself at last weekend's Emerald City Comicon, Ellen Forney has a giant comics memoir coming out this Fall. Forney is a really emblematic Seattle cartoonist of the last twenty years -- one young cartoonist from Seattle identified her to me as "that artist who was all over The Stranger when I was a kid" -- but she's never done a long work before. It's going to be from a Penguin imprint, Gotham.

* Robot 6 has a nice round-up of various publishing news offerings from the rest of ECCC. It's interesting to note that with Simon Gane and James Stokoe doing Godzilla comics, that's a character with one solid crew of visual interpreters. Sheesh.

* Duncan The Wonder Dog went back for a third printing.

* you've likely already seen this bit of non-comics business from Seth. Pretty.

* Heidi MacDonald runs PR from the nice 2000 AD folks about forthcoming digital plans. MacDonald's right to feature that company's moves in that direction -- they could potentially bring a variety of new approaches to the table, as they have a different orientation than many publishers and are one of those folks with a ton of material they could employ in such initiatives.

* here's Sarah McIntyre's new gig.

* finally, I'm very excited about D+Q working with Dan Zettwoch, as I think that guy is right freaking there with his comics and has been for a few years now. The cover is awfully pretty.
