Reprints: Hanks, Shelton, Tezuka

Tom Spurgeon reports that Paul Karasik will edit and Fantagraphics will publish a second collection of comics by Fletcher Hanks.

Spurgeon writes: “Paul Karasik announced that he’s found what he believes to be the entirety of Fletcher Hanks’ output in the Golden Age, and will be doing a companion volume to his I Shall Destroy All The Civilized Planets… The second volume will complete the set, naturally.”

Elsewhere, Publishers Weekly reports on Knockabout Comics‘ upcoming omnibus collection of Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers comics by Gilbert Shelton. The 624-page book will collect “every adventure of the hirsute trio since their inception in 1968, as well as previously unpublished material” and ties in to efforts to produce a stop-motion animated film based on the comics.

The Same Hat! Same Hat! blog posts images from promotional material produced by Vertical Inc. to promote the publisher’s forthcoming series of books reprinting Osamu Tezuka‘s Black Jack comics. The publisher’s website runs two preview stories.
