On the site today we have a preview of Gary Groth’s expansive interview with the late Maurice Sendak. It will see full publication this autumn in TCJ 302. And yesterday Frank Santoro reported back to us from deep within cartoonist Jim Rugg’s Pittsburgh-area home. Frank is embedding himself in different locations.
The big story of the moment is perhaps the news that longtime independent cartoonist Roger Langridge, who recently wrote, among other comics, a very popular Thor series, has announced that he will not work for Marvel and DC any longer due to ethical concerns. Langridge currently writes Popeye for IDW besides doing his own comics.
There’s been a whole slew of book previews:
-Eric Reynolds writes about a project he’s very happy with — Significant Objects.
-Gilbert Hernandez’s upcoming Fatima: The Blood Spinners looks pretty great.
-Drawn & Quarterly has a very handsome new petit livre on the way.
-And finally, closest to my heart: There’s yet another new Wally Wood collection coming.
