Neat trick!

In his very smart piece on recent discourse on manga, John Jakala includes this:

“My favorite book from last year (something I never got around to blogging) was Drawn & Quarterly’s Aya, and the year before that my pick was First Second’s Klezmer. So even if manga isn’t scratching my older reader’s itch, I know there are plenty of other places I can look for comic book relief.”

Then this morning Tom Spurgeon posts this:

“AYA OF YOP CITY, MARGUERITE ABOUET AND CLEMENT OUBRERIE, HARDCOVER, 9781894937900, SEPTEMBER, $19.95.”

So where’s the announcement of the second volume of Klezmer?

    While I wish I could claim credit for my blogging magically causing publishers to announce their release schedules (quick, ADV, tell me when Yotsuba&! v. 6 is coming out!!), Aya v. 2 has been listed on the D+Q website for quite a while, and Chris Mautner mentioned it way back in November 2007 (something else I forgot to blog).

    But I agree with you: Hey, First Second, when is Klezmer v. 2 coming out??
