Bundled, Tossed, Untied & Stacked: Publishing News

* I have very little today; I don't know if we're stuck in between announcement periods or what, but there seems to be very little in the way of "here's what's coming out" kind of news stories right this moment.

* it's always fun to look at for future books, as long as you don't take any of them as guaranteed and realize they'll probably come out at a different time than suggested. Here's a giant book with Ulli Lust's involvement; her previous English-translation project hit hard with a lot of comics readers here.

* here's a what I would call "mainstream-plus" version of what's coming out this Fall, which serves our purposes because readers of this site that want that information are probably well-served by having it all in one place. There's some fine comics on there, for sure.

* I don't know that I've linked to this Heidi MacDonald story at PW yet or not. I welcome the comics of all of those writers as writers, they all have their virtues, but I'm greatly disinterested in news of creative business entities in one form seeking to lay claim on territory in another. That kind of art-product news depresses the shit out of me. I hope all of the authors' comics are great.

* finally, I'm unclear as to why these companies have any sort marketing focus on far-off projects when there's so much work that could be done with the comic books of right now.
