Bundled, Tossed, Untied & Stacked: Publishing News
By Tom Spurgeon
from Czap Books, previewed
. The creators are Puiupo and Adonis Pantazopoulos. That one looks very handsome.
* that Tetris
book from Box Brown has a UK publisher
* Johanna Draper Carlson notes
there will be an eighth volume in the English translation of Vinland Saga
. That would catch American readers up to Japanese readers.
* the only thing less trustworthy than projected-out Amazon.com listing is projected-out Amazon.com listings that encompass the December in any calendar, because a lot of loose project are shoved into December that don't really have a chance to come out. But as a general list of books that are being planned or were being planned, doing a search is a lot of fun. I didn't know (or had forgotten) New York Review Comics had a Dominique Goblet planned
. Not sure where we stand with collections of Tomie
, but that's a work worth owning. Jonathan Barli goes high (in the sky) concept, in what should be a gorgeous book called The Gaze Of Drifting Skies
. I knew that Fantagraphics had planned a re-release of Bhob Stewart's Wally Wood book with re-done art direction
, and I'll be happy when that comes out whenever that might be. This Sarah Ferrick book looks intriguing
. Buz Sawyer
is one handsome strip, and I'm glad these volumes continue
but I won't count on them until they're actually published -- I have a feeling that's a tough sell. There are a bunch more, but the next Isabel Greenberg
should be of high, high interest. As I recall, her first book came out at the end of a calendar year as well.
* finally, Brian Lee O'Malley released some preview imagery
, the ongoing (!) he's making with Leslie Hung.
