San Diego: PictureBox


If you haven’t heard, Brooklyn-based publisher PictureBox is putting out some of the most innovative and interesting comic and art books nowadays, including the gorgeous two-volume retrospective of Gary Panter’s work. Next year, they’re releasing what is shaping up to be one of the must-have animation books of the year. And I’m not just saying this because I’m the editor of the project. This book is about one of the most influential figures in contemporary animation, and everybody involved is working hard to ensure that it turns out properly. If you want to hear more about the project, drop by the PictureBox booth (#1630) in San Diego and chat with publisher Dan Nadel. He’ll be glad to fill you in, and he may even have a few pieces of artwork from the book on display.

  • you’re such a tease, amid! but it worked. i wanna know who it is!

    A book dedicated to John Hubley is something I’d buy. When do you plan on dropping the beans?

  • Intriguing. I like your idea Chuck…

  • Chris

    It’s John K, and it’s about damn time! I hope it’s exploding at the seams with art like John wants! I’m confident it will be a must have with a great independent publisher and Amid at the helm! Oh and did I say I’m looking forward to it? :)

    It’s John K, as mentioned on the Picturebox blog. Excellent news!

  • Chuck R.

    Thanks, Mike. Yeah, I’d be happy with a John K. book too. I’ll read it while waiting for the Hubley tome. :-)

  • Robert Schaad

    Sounds cool…Hope that it includes some of the internet ads that John K. has done lately (great colors and design) as well as his takes on the HB characters (Huck, Yogi, Jetsons).

  • There better be a giant foldout inside of Bjork ripping a chicken in half.
