SDCC ’09 | Random news and notes
Here are a few items of interest I managed to glean from various places on the Interwebs:
• Stripper’s Guide blogger Allan Holtz announced that his “Guide to U.S. Newspaper Comic Strips and Cartoon Panels” is now under contract to be published by University of Michigan Press. “The book is a compendium of the vital statistics about comic strip and panel series that have appeared in American newspapers.”
• Also according to Spurgeon: AdHouse will be working on an art book with Rafael Grampa, though it might not see the light of day until 2011 due to Grampa’s busy schedule.
• BOOM! will be releasing a hardcover version of Don Rosa’s The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. Can a complete Carl Barks collection be too far away?
• Del Rey is going to publish a graphic novel version of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Um, yay?
