* got not one but two Fantagraphics sell-into-bookstores catalogs last weekend. I'm not seeing anything that surprises. I'm pretty sure I knew they're working with Mr. Fish now, which is a potentially strong pick-up for them. It does seem like those catalogs overall offer a greater emphasis on newer cartoonists and existing series, which makes sense as that's what the whole bookstore-oriented industry is focusing on doing.
* finally, Paul Gravett reminds us of comics coming out next month. This looks to be a potentially great Fall season.
