Here are some interesting titles from publishers distributed by Diamond Book Distributors, expected to ship in September 2012.  (All information is tentative.)

Source PDF available here.  (It also lists prose books and games.)

These are the titles I found interesting.  The ones with covers are the most interesting.

GASOLINE ALLEY VOLUME 1

ISBN-13: 978-1-61377-440-3

The year 1964 was a momentous one in the history of Gasoline Alley — it’s when Frank King officially handed the baton to Dick Moores. King continued to help plot the strip but it’s Dick Moores who takes center stage. More so than any other newspaper strip, Gasoline Alley is renowned for its strict continuity and this is our chance to see Moores — who continued writing and drawing the strip until 1986 — make it his own. Forty-plus years earlier, Walt Wallet found baby Skeezix in a basket on his doorstep and in the 1964-1966 strips reproduced in this volume. Skeezix is now middle-aged and has a family of his own.  For the first time since they appeared in newspapers fifty years ago, readers can enjoy these classic strips featuring Walt and his wife Phyllis, Skeezix and his wife Nina, Corky, Clovia, Slim, Avery, Mr. Pert, Joel, Rufus, and a whole cast of familiar characters.

[1921-1930 strips may be found here.  A full-size Sunday collection of early strips is available here.]

  1. Douglass Abramson says:

    Glad to see the Parker books are going to be reissued in softcover. The IDW booth at Comic Con told me that they wouldn’t be.

  2. Torsten Adair says:

    From the cover, it looks like this paperback is being published to tie-in with the upcoming movie.

    25 January 2013

    No idea which book inspired the movie.

  3. Al™ says:

    Nice selection of titles, Torsten. Thanks for putting in the work to assemble this.

    Unfortunately, some publishers are still gouging us Canadians on the cover prices. For example,
    WOODWORK: WALLACE WOOD 1927-1981
    Price: $59.99 ($74.99 CAN)
    Publisher: IDW Publishing

    Canadian and American currencies are essentially at par now, or within pennies of each other. And have been for years.
    There is no excuse for gouging Canadians for 25% more for the same book.

    One publisher is being fair, and selling its books in both countries at the same price:
    THE YOUNG ALBERT
    Price: $69.95 ($69.95 CAN)
    Publisher: Humanoids, Inc.

    Let’s hear from IDW. What gives?
