Bundled, Tossed, Untied & Stacked: Publishing News
By Tom Spurgeon
* news on the Mark Millar/Greg Capullo project
. Capullo's professional reputation as I've encountered it is that of a workhorse with old-school do-the-job values, so it's difficult to imagine complaints similar to the last few Millar projects that the work seems less like a fully realized comics and more like a cursory outline for a motion picture. Although don't get me wrong, the intent is to make the project into a motion picture.
* been a while since I ran around the Amazon.com listings to look at books coming out. You can't really trust the Amazon.com listings, particularly for exact dates of release, but they're a generally good indication you're likely to get the book in question within a framework a couple of months in advance of the listing to six months afterwards. Usually. If you're lucky. This is what popped for me: Sailor And Pekka
, What Parsifal Saw
, The Crumb Compendium
, Fire!! The Zora Neale Hurston Story
, The Best We Could Do
, The Interview
. That Eartha
is a new one by Cathy Malkasian, so I'm very excited for that!
* three books of Milo Manara's still coming in 2016 from Humanoids
* finally, someone asked me if there's been any news on works coming out in 2018 yet, or if it's all 2017 focused, and I remembered this article about a 2018 graphic novel to be called Shadow Life
. 2018! I have seen the future of comics and it is closer than you think.
