Strange Tales 2 a go

A sequel to Marvel’s surprise-hit alternative-superhero anthology Strange Tales has long been rumored, and now a post at cartoonist Paul Hornschemeier’s blog reveals the truth: Strange Tales 2 is on its way. No official word on when it’ll arrive, or on who else will be joining the anthology this time out, but based on what The Perry Bible Fellowship‘s Nick Gurewitch has said about a Galactus strip he’s working on, and this table of contents from Jeffrey Brown’s Process minicomic boasting the inclusion of Strange Tales sketches, they seem to be likely candidates. Meanwhile, I’ve heard tell that Becky Cloonan and Michael Kupperman will be making their triumphant returns to the project. Stay tuned!

Hopefully it’s maintain the level of quality of the first, and bring Bagge back for a new story instead of the inventory backlog.

I’m kind of sad we’re finding out about this now, just because the first one was years in the making. Will we be seeing this in 2013?

Interesting. I wonder how many years until it becomes customary, in comics, to give credit to all designers, even those who aren’t named “Chip Kidd.”

Baby steps, baby steps.

Kidd’s contribution to the cover seemed above and beyond “guy who put the logo and the image together,” you know?

He also made it upside down. That’s visionary!!!!!!!!

And stupid.

Frank Santoro told me at MoCCA he’ll be doing something for this as well.

Steve: Yeah, that Chip Kidd clown, what does he know?

Chris: SWEET.

Great news!

Is there any word on Marvel releasing a soft cover version of Volume 1?

Would be nice to get the Los Bros Hernandez, Charles Burns, Rick Altergott, and Richard Sala on this series. Hey, one can dream right?

I’d love to see a Jim Woodring take on Black Bolt. Or Silver Surfer. Or Man Thing.

I mean, if seeing these people work on projects that isn’t their own is a need or anything…

Dream no more. In the recent Jaime Hernandez Artbook, he says he’s working on a strip for this book.
