Today’s Publishing News Round-Up
* Paul Pope talks about
shrink-wrapping his forthcoming Pulphope
art book project, and what last-minute editorial decision helped the book avoid an adults-only tage.
* Travis Charest is apparently off of the Dreamshifters Metabarons graphic novel project with Alejandro Jodorowsky
that had been set up more than a half decade ago. In what seems to me an admirably straight-forward confession confirming the news that had leaked out in an interview, the artist admits to productivity issues regarding the project.
* The comics business news and analysis site ICv2.com has up a proper profile of Aurora Publishing
, the American subsidiary of major women's manga publisher Ohzora setting up for business starting in June with titles under its own name and a yaoi-focused imprint called Deux. Ohzora had recently licensed through Dark Horse and Digital Manga, according to the article. One can throw a virtual rock and hit three bloggers opining on Ohzora bringing its more mainstream, slightly older audience-skewing
books to American audiences and their chance for success in doing so.
* Like any proud papa, Eddie Campbell enthuses
about his latest progeny.
thanks, Er Lern Loh
