I wish more company execs were as blunt as Fantagraphic Books Co-Publisher Kim Thompson:
Anyway, a new year is upon and it’s time to ‘fess up about all the late Fantagraphics titles you were expecting to have by now, and don’t, because we suck. Specific apologia and weaseling have been added to some titles, others we just pass under mortified silence. 2011 will be better!
Bluntness aside, some late-coming titles are supposed to be released this year according to Thomopson including the first volume of Pogo (out of a series of 12), Popeye volume 5, and Krazy and Ignatz: 1919-1921 among others.
