  1. Tom Spurgeon says:

    it’s amazing that we both thought of this book a day or so apart when it’s been listed for weeks and weeks

  2. The first official confirmation that this (long-rumored) project had a specific publication date and page count was on this same site, a couple of months ago:

  3. Wait, so I shouldn’t have spotlighted this amazing graphic novel because it was mentioned elsewhere? Did I break some rule? I saw people talking about this on Twitter and put up the cover. Sorry but I think this site and every site needs MORE RICHARD MCGUIRE NOT LESS.

    Also, Tom, people were talking about this following BEA. Group mind, nothing original, blah blah blah.

  4. Aaron Humphrey says:

    I can’t wait for this! The short version of HERE is mind-enlarging stuff … if McGuire can sustain that kind of genius over 320 pages, this book will be an instant classic.

  5. David Beard says:

    Wouldn’t a lot of book announcement news overlap the week after the convention?
