A little indie news here — 2D Cloud a micro publisher which has put out some outstanding books like Anna Bongiovanni’s Out of Hollow Water, various books by Noah van Sciver, etc. —has announced some plans.
Along with Uncivilized, they’ll co-publish MariNaomi’s epic Dragon’s Breath and Other True Stories, a 400-page compendium of her non-fiction comics from The Rumpus and elsewhere. Naomi’s work uses a deceptively simple art style to tell revealing true life stories—this should be some collection. The book comes out in the fall but early copies will be available at selected shows.
2d Cloud also just announced a subscription plan for its 2014 books. The books include Dragon’s Breath as well as Julie Doucet, Blaise Larmee, Anna Bongiovanni, Mark Connery (via a book edited and designed by Marc Bell), Andy Burkholder, Lauren Monger — and MORE. They have a variety of plans available—it’s like getting season tickets for the Mets only you get comics instead of Dillon Gee.
I should also point out that the 2D Cloud website has a pretty amazing webcomics section. I think I’ll be spotlighting more of these over the next few days.
