Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked: Publishing News

By Tom Spurgeon

image* here's a cover reveal for Maria Scivan's Scholastic-published Nat Enough.

* from Johanna Draper Carlson comes the first I heard of a last issue for the John Allison-written Giant Days. That's too bad. I think Allison is a talented creator, and while I didn't enjoy this title anywhere nears as much as Allison's solo efforts, I do have about all of them published to date. The idea that companies might find way to used certain creators in a way that flatters the way they know to best sell comics is an intriguing one and may suggest a bigger and more powerful industry engine than actually exists.

* Alan Grant will have work appear as a new story in the Detective Stories #1000 hardcover. That will thrill some folks.

* finally: here's something I didn't know: in moving a bunch of 1980s-into-1990s material into digital availability, DC apparently decided not to make a bunch of Green Lantern work written by convicted child pornographer and one time humor writer/historian Gerard Jones.
