Genesis, according to R. Crumb

On his official site, R. Crumb announced the completion of "Robert Crumb's Book of Genesis"-
...It's 201 pages. He has also finished the Cover, the Introduction, the commentary (for the back sleeve) and also the Map, which will be in the beginning of the book. The book is soon going to production and it's planned to be released this fall.
He spoke about the project to Robert Hughes in a 2005 interview.

CRUMB: I was fooling around with Adam and Eve one day. Doodling about Adam and Eve. At first I did this satirical take off on Adam and Eve — lots of jokey asides and Jewish slang because they're Jewish right? God is Jewish.

HUGHES: Now you're going to get it for anti-Semitism.

CRUMB: Finally I got over fooling around and I realized I just had to tell it straight.

Morrison's Watchmen follow-up

Grant Morrison has an upcoming series featuring the characters who inspired Alan Moore.
I've just been doing an Earth Four book, which is the Charlton characters but I've decided to write it like "Watchmen." [laughs] So it's written backwards and sideways and filled with all kinds of symbolism and because of that it's taking quite a long time to write.
Read more here.

Marvel goes indie

From Paul Pope's Flickr:
Marvel has finally announced it-- their "indie" comics anthology. I have an 8 pg. Inhumans story in it and I did the first cover for the limited series. Both of my contributions will be colored by my friend Jose "Year 100" Villarrubia.

All my favorite Marvel characters in a serious Marvel Mash-Up.
This should be fun- it sounds like the second coming of "Coober Skeber: Marvel Benefit Issue." I can't wait to find out who else is contributing!
