D+Q Announces Their Eighth Book With Cartoonist Adrian Tomine, October’s Killing And Dying
Drawn And Quarterly announced earlier today it acquired world publishing rights to Adrian Tomine's Killing And Dying
, to be released in October. They announced the news first through the New Yorker site
(where Tomine is a prominent and frequently used cover artist and illustrator) and then through a mass-released PR e-mail. That information can be found here
The book will mark the eighth such partnership between the New York City-based cartoonist and the Montreal-based publishing house. Chris Oliveros was acquiring editor. D+Q notes that this will be the 20th anniversary of the Optic Nerve
mini-series where the bulk of his published material is initially serialized.
The initial e-mail details a suite of foreign-rights deals also announced at the initial acquisition.
I look forward to seeing the book, as I do with everything Tomine chooses to do.
