Many of you already know this, but I wanted to announce here officially that Jessica Abel and I are the new series editors of Houghton Mifflin's Best American Comics series, starting with the third volume, coming out in the fall of 2008. This means we are reviewing all the comics that come out in the course of the September 1-August 31 year and presenting a selection to a guest editor who makes the final choices for the book (and who will be announced soon!).
The deadline for BAC 2008 is fast approaching: the last publication date we can accept is August 31, 2007 and, just as importantly, the last date we will accept any books will be September 7, 2007--that's less than a month away, people!
So spread the word and let your artist and publisher friends know that the official website is now live and contains all the submission information you need.
While you're at it, check out the site for the Best American Comics 2007. The guest editor was Chris Ware and the book will be in stores in October.
