Random Publishing Notes Of Note
* Samantha Haywood of the Transatlantic Literary Agency has sold UK rights for Jar of Fools
to Faber & Faber, with an option for Berlin
. I'm not aware of a ton of Faber & Faber comics, but they used to publish Rowland Emett's collections. Given the obsession that some people have with accessible, done-in-one comics reading experiences, it's surprising that Jar of Fools
doesn't receive more attention that way.
* DC adjusts the Transmetropolitan trade formatting
. I suffered a small brain seizure trying to parse out the details, but I think it's that they want a more solid book at the top of the series to help sell future volumes, and in doing so they also fixed the back-end a bit to make things more standard.
* Kitchen, Lind & Associates
signed three more clients: the Harvey Kurtzman
estate, Jim Lawson
, and Bryant Paul Johnson
. This happened right before SPX, but Denis Kitchen's e-mail set-up and my e-mail set-up seem to really, really hate each other.
