* Remember that Strangers in Paradise Omnibus I mentioned awhile back? Apparently you can pre-order it now:
Abstract Studio is pre-selling this very limited definitive edition on line, before its debut at the San Diego Comic-Con. The complete SIP story is contained in two 1,100 page hardcovers with dust jackets and a bonus color cover gallery hardcover with dust jacket all in a gorgeous slipcase! This mammoth collection is only $159.95! Shipping in the continental US is $15.00 via FedEx but if you are attending the San Diego Comic-Con you can pre-purchase your copy and pick it up there! All other orders will be shipped the first week in August.
* Nonfiction prose publisher Hill and Wang announced they're going to expand their graphic novel offerings.
* Also from ICv2: "DMF and Bleach Studios will launch a series of comics based on the Storm Hawks animated series this summer." Apparently this is a show on the Cartoon Network? I never turn on my TV anymore.
* Missed it: NBM will publish The Big Kahn by Neil Kleid and Nicolas Cinquegrani this fall:
Rabbi David Kahn has lived a forty-year lie: he is not, nor has he ever been, Jewish. At his funeral, the “rabbi’s” grifter brother reveals the truth to Kahn’s family and his entire congregation. Author and Xeric Award winner Neil Kleid and artist Nicolas Cinquegrani explore a family secret that forces the nature of faith into question.
