Smaller Press Round-Up


A few publishing notes from the smaller press scenes, in case they were missed the first time around.:
* Typocrat Press has pushed back their anticipated debut, an English-language translation of Alex Baldi's Frankenstein Encore et Toujours, into early March, according to the publisher. The company still plans to have copies available for January's Angouleme Fesival.

* Buenaventura Press now has copies of the fifth issue of Kramer's Ergot available for sale. The fourth issue of Sammy Harkham's anthology, featuring a number of newer cartoonists in a massive, fall-off-the-table-and-harm-children sized book, was one of the most talked about releases of 2003. Unlike that year's edition, the new issue from Gingko Press is not rolling out during the busy convention season, but in the Fall, making mail order and shop placement more important.

* The Megan Kelso-edited Scheherazade : Comics About Love, Treachery, Mothers and Monsters from Soft Skull Press had its launch party over the weekend at New York's Bowery Poetry Club. Some of the cartoonists involved will participate in a signing at Jim Hanley's Universe on West 33rd on Thursday the 11th, 5-7 PM.
