Kyle Baker to publish Why I Hate Saturn/The Cowboy Wally Show omnibus?


You may recall me talking about my ardent love for Kyle Baker's comics earlier in the week, and lamenting about both the lack of new work from him (in classic entitled comic fan mode) and a lack of wider appreciation and recognition of his work from the comics-sphere. Now, in the way these things often happen, it seems there is some movement on the Baker front: on February 10th, he posted the above image on his Tumblr blog, along with the words 'cover for new book.' The image, um, as you can see, is a composite of Baker's seminal Why I Hate Saturn, and The Cowboy Wally Show books (both of which are currently out of print), which would appear to indicate he's planning to publish an omnibus edition that collects both works. 

If it's true, that's really super exciting news- Baker's one of the greats in my eyes, so I hope this happens, and sometime this year, and I hope that more people are introduced to his amazing work, and that leads to the production of newer comics. A girl can dream, right?
