Jason shares his artwork for the back cover of his upcoming story collection Athos in America and it makes a fine counterpoint to the front cover.

Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture – A Career Retrospective

Another reveal of an amazing art book today! Art Director Tony Ong just turned in this fabulous cover design for Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture – A Career Retrospective, coming out during the holidays. Hope you've got some extra shelf space in your bookcase because you'll want to display this (and the other one we revealed today, Tony Millionaire's 500 Portraits) face-out! Click the image for a larger version so you can bask in all that amazing detail.

500 Portraits by Tony Millionaire

...or rather, Jacob Covey's lovely cover design thereof. The area on the left will be faux cloth, while the right side will be uncoated paper — much like our Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse books. 500 Portraits should be available in about 3 months, give or take a couple weeks.

Athos in America - cover illustration - Jason

Jason has revealed the beautiful cover illustration for his next forthcoming book, Athos in America. At his blog he includes the initial thumbnail sketch, which I recall falling in love with when he first posted it a little while back. Title treatment and coloring are TK. The book will be in the same clothbound hardcover format as Low Moon.

Pogo update from Mark Evanier

Pogo Vol. 1 by Walt Kelly

Our good friend Mark Evanier, who's been providing invaluable editorial assistance on our forthcoming Walt Kelly Pogo collections, has posted a very informative must-read update on his blog. Long story short: Volume 1 has gone to the printer and is going to be awesome. But read Mark's entire post for many more details and a much more eloquent description of the book!

(And since we know you'll ask: no, these books will not be released in slipcased pairs à la The Complete Peanuts. They're big enough on their own!)

The Smiling Horse Is Coming!

from Athos in America by Jason

Colorist Hubert is working away on the next Jason book, Athos in America, a Low Moon-style hardcover of all-new short stories scheduled for release around the end of the year. Meanwhile, I'm revving up my translatin' jets. Here's a sneak peek at a particularly intriguing (we think) page from one of the stories, still virtually wet from Hubert's virtual brushes.

Joe Sacco on Oil and Water

Oil and Water by Steve Duin and Shannon Wheeler

When the preeminent master of the comics journalism form praises your book of comics reportage, that's gotta feel pretty good. Oil and Water is coming later this year and we're thrilled to have received this advance praise from the great Joe Sacco:

"Reporter Steve Duin and cartoonist Shannon Wheeler visited Louisiana to investigate the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster, and their legwork shows. By contrasting the perspectives of out-of-state do-gooders and hard-bitten locals, Duin and Wheeler tell a nuanced story that goes a long way to evoking what the catastrophe means to those who still live with it."

Looky what I found when I was snooping around in our art department files last night! Michael Kupperman's covers for Tales Designed to Thrizzle are always eye-catching and this is the most striking one yet. Look for issue #7 in November!

The editorial process

Tony Millionaire portraits

At a point last month during the production process on Tony Millionaire's 500 Portraits, due this coming November, we were down to just a handful of illustrations we couldn't identify, so we sent some images to Andrew Leland at The Believer for his help identifying those that ran in the magazine. Designer Jacob Covey asked me to share this with you, saying "I believe it appropriately sums up our process." Click it to see it bigger.

Oil and Water by Steve Duin and Shannon Wheeler

From designer Alexa Koenings here's the striking final cover design for Steve Duin and Shannon Wheeler's Oil and Water, coming in late Fall/early Winter. It's similar to the preliminary design we've already shown you, with some small but important differences. We're hoping to have the bottom half of "OIL" printed with iridescent metallic stamping for that authentic oil-spill sheen, which should look pretty fantastic if it works out.

We're also excited to share this advance praise we received from Jeff Lemire, creator of Essex County and Sweet Tooth:

"Oil and Water is smart, informative and completely engaging. We experience the disaster through the eyes of Duin and Wheeler's richly developed, beautifully illustrated characters and the result is a stunning graphic novel not to be missed."
