Aaaah! New Beanworld!

Larry checks in on his blog (and in yesterday’s comments) to report that he’s received advance copies of Beanworld Book 3, with the all-new stories we’ve been waiting 15 years for!

From the catalog description:

Fifteen years in the making, Remember Here When You Are There! completes the “Springtime” cycle of stories, in which the perfect harmony of the Beanworld is interrupted for the first time.

The official pub date isn’t until December 23, but DH says it’s available for pre-order here.

Can the completion of Big Numbers be far behind?

(Yes. Yes it can.)

    I can’t wait to get this! I came to Beanworld a little late, about 2005-ish. I found some issues at a a local bookstore, and I was reminded of some ANSi drawings a friend of mine did back in the late 90’s. Great stuff.

  2. David B says:

    I resisted buying the first two collected Beanworlds over vacation, mostly because I think I have most of them in comic form. But a third might lead me to get the other two, just because they’d look so good together.

    And, yeah, Big Numbers. I found my copies of those also. Maybe we can convince them to make it a coffee table book, instead of a comic, that they can take their time with? It might be worth a shot.

    I’ve been waiting patiently for new Beanworld for a long time now. Soon….

    In re _Big Numbers_, you have seen http://glycon.livejournal.com/11817.html, right?

    • Scott says:

      Oh, yeah I’ve seen the xeroxed Big Numbers “#3.” Pretty wild after all these years.

      I’d actually phrased that part of my post differently until I remembered that recent little archeological find. 🙂

    I saw that it wasn’t coming out to stores until December and cried a little. I thought it was sooner!

    And yeah, Big Numbers 3, right up there with new David Mazzuchelli for me this year (and new Beanworld! eventually)

    Wow! I was just thinking about Big Numbers the other day. I wouldn’t be surprised if Mr Moore decided to sort things out with Mr Sienkiwicz and bring it back but get it over with in the space of an issue. Maybe with a big ‘happy-ever-after’ musical number for the finale. You know, just to fox us all again.
