I didn’t plan it this way, but three of my projects, RASL, BONE: Artist’s Edition, and The Best American Comics 2013 (which I edited), are all shipping in September. The full color RASL was set for October, but we moved it up a month when I was invited to the Brooklyn Book Festival where it will officially debut on September 22. Diamond decided to spotlight the books in their Indie Edge department. I discuss the three projects as well as the indy books I’m currently enjoying, which you can see here.
RASL Complete HC (See Page 280 in the July PREVIEWS!)
RASL was originally serialized (like MAUS, and WATCHMEN), however, this new hardcover not only gave me a chance to polish the story, but with the assistance of colorist Steve Hamaker, I was able to redraw every single panel with light and color. I almost feel like this is a brand new book.
Bone Artist’s Edition (See Page 157 in this month’s IDW section of the July PREVIEWS!)
The BONE Artist’s Edition; what can I say? It’s an Artist’s Edition from IDW. These books are some of my favorite things going in comics right now. Did you see the MAD edition? Or the Kubert TARZAN?
The Best American Comics 2013 (See Page 315 in the July PREVIEWS!)
Finally, The Best American Comics 2013 is here, and it has a cover by the amazing Kate Beaton. I have it on good authority that this book is full of great comics from the best graphic novelists, mini-comics, self-publishers, and the web.
