Cul de Sac Golden Treasury due out in June


From Richard Thompson’s blog comes news that a “Cul de Sac Golden Treasury, A Keepsake Garland of Classics” is due out in June.

He writes:

To begin the year we present the cover to the Cul de Sac Golden Treasury, A Keepsake Garland of Classics, due out this June. It’ll feature extensive Author Commentary (and I’ll get it finished early next week, Caty! Swear!), which will no doubt deepen and enrich the reader’s Cul de Sac-reading experience and provide unique insights into the creative process, and pad the book out to a coupla thousand pages if I can gas on about the creative process long enough, and god knows I can.

Author commentary! Wow! PLEASE tell me it will also have a “How to draw Mr. Danders” page!

Will there be more discussion of pen nibs?

Cul de Sac is my favorite. Who started this whole commentary thing? I love it!

I first noticed it in the Pearls treasuries (which is worth buying just for the commentary even if you already bought the previous collections) but i picked up an old Calvin and Hobbes special edition collection and it had Bill Watterson commentary in there. That’s as far back as I’ve found, so far. I love it too.

Commentary started with Far Side! It was very fun. And continues in Dilbert.

Although the Dilbert collection I’m reading now has really annoying comments, in RED INK after each strip. I mean really, I do think Scott Adams is funny, but I don’t like a red explanation of each strip, gag.
