Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked: Publishing News

By Tom Spurgeon

image* New York Review Comics had a colossal year last year and it's a momentum they've kept into this one. Some of these books look great, and it's nice to see former Picturebox stalwart Frank Santoro find a publisher for his recent book published in Europe before its this North American partnership.

* industry veteran Dave Roman will be editing a line of graphic novels drawn on key moments in American history, which sounds cool. We'll get to see some more history comics from Chris Schweizer, a cartoonist I like very much working in that mode. Dibs on the script for a Henry Highland Garnet bio. We are definitely getting to the point where kids comics have comparable weight to every other type of comic based on any number of measurables.

* finally: more details on the Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen comics coming our from a group of high-profile mainstream talents at DC Comics. Love the idea of Steve Lieber on a character like that.
