Bundled, Tossed, Untied & Stacked: Publishing News


By Tom Spurgeon

* Úlcera from Czap Books, previewed. The creators are Puiupo and Adonis Pantazopoulos. That one looks very handsome.

image* that Tetris book from Box Brown has a UK publisher: SelfMadeHero.

* 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 listing is projected-out 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 for Snotgirl, the ongoing (!) he's making with Leslie Hung.
