Entertainment Weekly reviews Fred Hembeck's new book.

If you've been a comic-book reader during the past 30 years, then you're probably familiar with the work of the pioneering independent artist, known by many simply as ''the guy who draws the swirly knees and beady eyes.'' Endlessly enthusiastic, if often logorrheic, his dispatches to the rest of fandom have been like proto-blogs, minus the vituperation.

Awesome! DC Direct plans a Jack Kirby-style Superman figure as part of it's New Gods series. I wonder if it'll come with an interchangeable Murphy Anderson Superman head...

Fantagraphics plans "Prince Valiant," "Captain Easy" reprints

Fantagraphics Books has announced plans to publish hardcover collections of Hal Foster's "Prince Valiant" and Roy Crane's "Wash Tubbs and Captain Easy" beginning next year, IVC2 reports.

Yes, Fantagraphics already collected "Prince Valiant" in a 50-book collection, but this re-do will be in better quality. More info:

Prince Valiant will be presented in an oversized color hardcover format, with two years per book...

Fantagraphics will also begin releasing its collections of Wash Tubbs and its successor strip Captain Easy in 2009. Sundays will be printed in color; dailies in black and white.

DC Vault book announced

Last year, we got "The Marvel Vault," a cool, book-like thing housing reproductions of all sorts of neat Marvel Comics memorabilia--fan club buttons, stationary and the like. And now it's DC Comics' turn.

According to IVC2:

Running Press is publishing The DC Vault: A Museum-in-a-Book ($49.95) in October. This chronicle of America’s oldest comic publisher contains more than 25 plastic-encased archival pieces for readers to pull out and examine. Included in the collection are exact reproductions of early sketches, covers, memos, press materials, a working model of a 1942 Junior Justice Society of America Decoder, plus original pencils and inks from Wonder Woman #63.

Nice...
