Bundled, Tossed, Untied & Stacked: Publishing News

By Tom Spurgeon

* here's some more news about Chinese versions of DC big three characters Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. I don't have any dark, Trump-like thoughts on this: I think these are properties and it's probably smart to have properties directly attuned to the world's great markets. I have almost no interest in this in a story sense, though. I do sort of wonder if these are the kinds of characters will be killed five years from now in service to propping up the big-bad in a crossover mini-series.

* William Gibson, comics-maker.

* so I guess there's a new Wasp character. The Wasp is probably the only female Marvel character that really works in a distinctive way in the 1960s Marvel comics, although I have a soft space for Kooky Quartet-era Scarlet Witch. It's weird to read the Jarvis character yelling at people.\\

* finally, Tillie Walden cements her Next Big Thing status with a book from First Second announced. It's a skating memoir.
