News & Notes


Art of Saul Tepper

This just rolled in the door as I was typing this email up. We'll have a full feature on it next week. It's the latest book from The Illustrated Press.

Mac Raboy Master of the Comics

In case you missed it a couple weeks ago, I put this fine book on sale because I simply bought too many when it first appeared. I want to shave down my stock a bit. Take advantage, it has my highest recommendation. [MACRAH. $39.95, $24.95].

Art of Reed Crandall

Good news. Twomorrows (same publisher as Mac Raboy) has announced there WILL be a new softcover edition of the long sold out (and quickly so) hardcover edition. We're working with the author, Roger Hill, on a full color signed bookplate to go with it. Stay tuned… Roger also wrote the Raboy book, and publishes EC Fan-Addict. We're expecting a new issue of that this Spring.
