Bundled, Tossed, Untied And Stacked: Publishing News

By Tom Spurgeon

* here comes a bunch of primetime Rick Veitch. That's a very welcome piece of news.

image* Anders Nilsen draws Wolverine and some sentinels for an upcoming comic in an issue of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.

* here's a video of the very nice Geoff Johns introducing the first few pages of DC's latest attempt at 1980s fan-fiction. I just have no interest in additional work from someone other than the creators, and I'm pleased my eyes see this as something illegitimate.

* sounds to me like the best reason for a book to come into existence.

* Charlie Hebdo comes to America. Even leaving the issue of what a magazine like that feels its role is and what its potential audience might wish to see a magazine approach its mission, what little I've seen of the magazine lately hasn't been all that inspiring in terms of quality relative to some of the artists and writers that have worked there in the past, so it's hard for me to find a significant element of interest in an American version.

* finally: Sandra Boynton + George Booth is quite the talent team-up.
