With four books coming out within a period of four months, we’re bound to keep posting stuff about them.
Wizard does a nice spread on Mesmo Delivery (shown above). Haven’t seen a copy to read. I borrowed this one from R’s blog. Don’t forget to head out and meet the man at Desert Island this Friday in Brooklyn. Actually, I just found a link to the article via DD, so go check it out.
Also, just released is the talk that Chris Arrant has with Rafael over at Newsarama.
Tim O’Shea talks it up with Enrico. As I’ve mentioned before, Tim was the first interview with AdHouse that I can recall. Here’s a snippet:
O’Shea: In your bio at your blog, it says “Forever stuck between the gravitational pulls of Italy (his home country) and Japan (a cultural passion).” The pull of Italy makes sense, but I was curious what attracted you to Japan in a cultural passion sense?
Casarosa: Well I attribute my passion for Japan to all the Japanese cartoons most Italians of my generation watched growing up. I don’t know why but 95% of all japanese animation produced in the late 70s and early 80s made it to Italian TV. We grew up immersed in it. I could name you more than thirty different series that we all loved and followed through out our childhood and adolescence and so can most Italians of my generation.
Forgot to mention this Venice review from Andrew Wheeler over at ComicMix. (HT to DD)
Behind the scenes: I’ve been making some headway into prepping for next year. Lots of talk back and forth with creators about specs, design, thoughts. It’s fun. Heck… it looks like we might even do a FCBD comic again. Stay tuned for the detes!
And… not that I have to tell most people to go buy James Jean stuff, but I’m reminded that his Fables Cover Collection comes out tomorrow. I got to help James prep this baby for the printer, and it’s one helluva book. I’m glad that he finally got this out there, and hope that he’s happy with it. For those in the LA area, he’s doing a signing tomorrow at Golden Apple.
