Bundled, Tossed, Untied & Stacked: Publishing News


By Tom Spurgeon

* extensive preview of the Buhle/Van Sciver Johnny Appleseed project at Study Group.

image* Rob Kirby shows more work from The Shirley Jackson Project.

* Fantagraphics announced far and wide late last week that Ellen Forney will be doing a book through them in 2017 called Rock Steady: Brilliant Advice From My Bipolar Life. Forney's last book discussing her mental health history, Marbles, was a significant work for the veteran creator.

* IDW is making a big deal of the first Bloom County collection in a very, very, very long time. As well they should. They've done a remarkable job as Berke Breathed's publishing partner. I'm sort of fascinated to see how that one reads all at once.

* good news: Mike Mignola, Gary Gianni and Dave Stewart will be the creators behind a new Hellboy graphic novel to be released in 2017. I always like staring at Gary Gianni's art.

* the comics industry news & analysis site has a preview of Moonshine up.

* bad news: folks at the site Bleeding Cool catch social media interaction indicating DC's newest iteration of Prez will have a short-story right around election time but is otherwise done. It was well-reviewed. I liked the first issue okay although I sort of wondered about the infrastructure that would allow it to find an audience.

* our long national nightmare is over.

* finally, Alex Mansfeld has an advance look at Kill Six Billion Demons.
