Bundled, Tossed, Untied, Stacked: Publishing News

By Tom Spurgeon

image* Ezra Claytan Daniels working with Ben Passmore is an exciting pairing, and a great get by Fantagraphics for a summer book whose appeal should extend deep into Fall. Passmore in particular is set up for a strong 2019 with I believe work on the way from multiple publishers. I also think I recall Fanta having been in the running for Daniels' current Lion Forge work when Upgrade Soul was making the rounds, but I could be wrong about that.

* according to this post, Bill Griffith's next project is a biography of Ernie Bushmiller.

* it took until the fourth issue of the relaunch for the new MAD to make news, with this pointed commentary riffing on Ed Gorey's most famous comic. I've found a couple of things I've read in the relaunched publication as kind of toothless, celebratory satire ("we're making fun of you because we love you a lot"), so I was happy to see this comic. Wanted: more like.

* finally: Eric Powell returns to The Goon, an Indy and Eisner favorite.
