Bundled, Tossed, Untied & Stacked: Publishing News
By Tom Spurgeon
* here's an interesting forthcoming project previewed
: the Image Comics summer offering Moonstruck
. That interests as the major sophomore effort from writer Grace Ellis and the major debut of Shae Beagle, one of the wave of comics-makers popping up at Columbus College Of Art & Design. CCAD's Laurenn McCubbin is set to color. Thanks, teach.
* Heidi MacDonald has a nice summary post here
on some editorial reorganization of DC Comics with an effect on the comics themselves. The big news, I think also accurately identified, is that they will put more effort into their kids comics through a stand-alone imprint/effort with the same status of a Vertigo or WildStorm. I think that makes perfect sense, given the reach and nature of their strongest characters. I would hope there's always the ability for kids to buy new stuff featuring favorite characters. I know that was a big part of my reading experience. In fact, a big part of my experience was the re-use of older material more
directly suited to kids, and maybe something can be done there.
* finally: we won't have to wait as long as usual to see more Street Angel
material, with a book due this summer
