Bundled, Tossed, Untied & Stacked: Publishing News

* the great Tom Gauld does the formal announcement and pre-orders for his Fall 2016 book Mooncop. The Free Comic Book Day comic-book edition of this was terrific.

* this Alison Sampson imagery for Winnebago Graveyard looks swell.

* Koren Shadmi has a comic coming out all about casual sex.

* here's something I hadn't heard of, from the reprints-obsessed Dover Press: a single volume reprinting of Fires and Murmur, two fine comics from Lorenzo Mattotti and Jerry Kramsky. There are a couple of pages in Murmur I love as much as anything in comics or prose that I read in the 1990s. Mattotti 4-Ever. You can't tell when an Amazon-listed book might come out, but it probably will.

* I hope we see this new Joe Ollmann in early 2017.

* finally, Oni Press offers up a sex/how-to line of comics, called Limerence Press. Ari Yarwood will head up the line, and their first project is a three-volume reprinting of Oh Joy, Sex Toy.
