I was going over my list of upcoming books I'm looking to get, and several are supposed to come out in May:
* Complete Outland (but not showing on the LOAC website...)
* 6th and final Popeye volume (YEAH!!)
* 13th Tracy
* 8th LOA (more new stuff for me!!)
* 3rd Mickey Mouse Dailies
* 3rd Captain Easy Sundays (one more to go!!)
* 6th Buck Rogers dailies (WAY late!!)
* 2nd Buck Rogers Sundays (2 years after the first!!!)

Also glad to see the book is getting attention in the press; if you live in the Washington D.C. area you can read a review of it in the Sunday WASHINGTON POST. And if you don't live in the Washington beltway, well, thanks to the wonders of modern technology, you can read the review right here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/books/cartoon-monarch-otto-soglow-and-the-little-king/2012/05/03/gIQAKN5S1T_story.html!
In udder noose ...
Hey, EMB! Thanks for the rundown on what's coming up and what's being delayed. I'm as disappointed as you are to hear I'll have to wait for the second half of summer to read CAPT. EASY Volume 3! But just like us, the folks at Fantagraphics don't delay without good reason, and it'll be worth the wait, o'course.
Turned in my text for STEVE CANYON Volume 2, also due out this summer. Lots of fine Caniffian stories in that book, and we'll be featuring some of the new information -- and artwork! -- we gleaned during our visit to the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum last December.
Not that I'll be resting on my laurels -- I'll be working on at least three other projects in the coming weeks!
And I'm curious: how many folks out there were able to participate in Free Comic Book Day? And if you did, which free comic did you get?
Back to the salt mines -- today I'm doing something KING AROO-related and preparing a piece for the LOAC website. Hey, it beats watching the currently-woeful Red Sox play baseball ...
Hoping everyone's start-of-May is a fine one --

I'm eager to work on this X-9 book, because I hope it's clear I'm an admirer of Raymond's work, and I'm a major, _major_ Dash Hammett booster. If you've never read his prose fiction, I can't recommend it highly enough. His writing is as lean and vigorous today as it was when it was first published.
So: original X-9 is a sure bet ...

I probably know less about Fantagraphics's upcoming schedulee than most -- I have enough on my plate just trying to keep straight OUR projects! I look forward to as much KAT as I can get, of course ...
