Book-related news from Comicon

Another San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone (some of us call it "nerd prom", but whatever).

While the focus is steadily drifting towards movies and video games and away from, you know, COMICS, there was still a bit of bookish news:
  • Also at Vertigo Crime is The Executor, a new graphic novel just announced for the line by thriller, travel and technology writer John Evans. In it, a washed up athlete is named executor of his high school sweetheart's will after her murder. Secrets about his own life creep up as he investigates the murder.
  • Max Allan Collins announced Return to Perdition, the last book in the 'Perdition' saga.
