Here's another 2012 sneak peek for you — Out of the Shadows, the first-ever collection of comics by unjustly overlooked Golden Age great Mort Meskin, edited by Steven Brower, author of our 2010 Meskin bio From Shadow to Light. Steven posted this cover art over on his blog, where he also reveals a spiffy-looking compilation of Golden Age Western comics he put together for powerHouse Books. They're both coming out this Spring — we've got more info on the Meskin book here on our website, and stay tuned right here for updates!
We'll be helping to distribute Rich Tommaso's forthcoming self-published graphic novel The Cavalier Mr. Thompson (as in Jim, not Kim), but before that can happen he's got a Kickstarter campaign going to help pay for the printing costs and help him finish it in time for its European publication deadlines. We've published a few of Rich's comics in the past and most recently you can see his stellar coloring work in our Carl Barks Library series!
Kick in some bucks and you could get a signed copy of the book along with bonuses like prints, buttons, original art or even a 3D sculpey rendition of a scene from the book! Watch the video above for more info and check out a 75-page (!) preview from the book at Rich's website!
The Silver Comic Books for Free Comic Book Day 2012 were announced today and we're pleased to be able to reveal that we'll be bringing you TWO wonderful all-ages titles! (We don't have cover art to show you yet (the ones on the FCBD website are just placeholders) but we'll be sure to post 'em here as soon as we can.)
Walt Disney’s Donald Duck Family Comics
Three amazingly adventurous, thrillingly stupendous, wonderfully wondrous comics by one of the greatest cartoonists of all time, Carl Barks! CARL BARKS! The biggest name in cartoons, second to only Walt Disney! Find out what happens to Donald, Daisy, Uncle Scrooge, Gyro Gearloose, and the Nephews in these extremely entertaining and wonderfully told full-color comics!
Crockett Johnson’s Barnaby Sampler
Before Harold and the Purple Crayon there was Barnaby. Created by Crockett Johnson, Barnaby ran in newspapers for over ten years (1942-52). Its subtle ironies and playful allusions won many passionate readers as they followed the adventures of 5-year-old Barnaby Baxter and his cigar-chomping fairy godfather, Jackeen J. O'Malley.
The annual Free Comic Book Day event takes place at participating comic shops on May 5, 2012!
In the inaugural edition of Jim Woodring's new email newsletter (which can be subscribed to at jimwoodring.com), he reveals the future (as yet unscheduled) existence of Problematic, a collection reproducing artwork from the many Moleskine sketchbooks he has filled throughout the years. A bit of this artwork was reproduced in The Comics Journal #301, and a bit more can be seen here.
