Heads Up: VERY CASUAL by Michael DeForge

Earlier today, publisher Annie Koyama posted to announce that Koyama Press has four new titles set to debut in Spring 2013: Very Casual and Lose #5 by Michael DeForge, Journal by Julie Delporte and Everything Takes Forever by Victor Kerlow. Certainly, every one of those titles is going to be worth a look, at the very least, but I have to say, the book I am most looking forward to, the book I will definitely buy, sight unseen, is the 152-page DeForge collection, Very Casual:

Here’s the publisher’s description:

Culled from mini comics, online comics and anthology contributions, Very Casual collects notable short stories from DeForge’s prolific oeuvre. Included are stories about litter gangs, meat-filled snowmen, righteous cops, beagle/human hybrids, and forest-bound drag queens. Very Casual also collects “Spotting Deer,” which won the Pigskin Peters Award for best non-traditional, non-narrative or avant-garde work at the 2011 Doug Wright Awards

You can read a great many comics stories by DeForge for free online at What Things Do and via DeForge’s Tumblr stream or WordPress blog.

Now get ready to buy the book!
