New Ware book and other goodies coming from Pantheon

The publisher is shaping up as the premier publisher of alt comics artists. From ICv2:

Pantheon will release The ACME Novelty Library on September 20th, a new hardcover by superstar cartoonist Chris Ware. The 9" x 15" 108 page book, which will sport an oversized belly band, is a tabloid-sized collection of single page cartoons, along with a luminescent map of the heavens, assorted cut-out activities, a history of the ACME Novelty Company, rare photos, and more.

Craig Thompson has also signed to do a graphic novel for Pantheon. Habibi will be about his travels in Morocco; no publishing date is scheduled.

Pantheon will release Charles Burns' Black Hole on October 18th. The 352-page comic-sized hardcover will collect the ten issues of the comics published by Fantagraphics over the last ten years.

...the two-volume Persepolis series will get some new packaging for the holidays. A softcover edition of Persepolis 2 will be released. And on October 25th, a boxed set of both softcover volumes will street at the bargain price of $23.90.
