Just wanted to let you guys know that this issue just came out this week and it just keeps getting better and better.
This month's issue features an interview with Blair Butler from G4's Fresh Ink segments as well as an in-depth article about the recession and it's effect on comics. Not to mention informative one-pagers on multiple topics such as Dash Shaw's Bottomless Belly Button from Fantagraphics, a first look at Paul Pope's clothing line from DKNY, interviews with Jonathan Lethem, Brian Wood, etc. and much more.
It's intelligent without being condescending. It's hip while still maintaining relevance. It doesn't pander to the comic masses and makes a genuine attempt at trying to broaden horizons.
I highly recommend that you guys pick this up. A lot of my fellow Midtown Comics alum and friends from the store have made contributions and I feel a certain amount of pride seeing their work come to the page.
Hopefully, your LCS's keep it in stock (if not, please ask to see if they'd be willing to order some copies) but you can also order it directly from the Comic Foundry website. Try it out, I'm confident you won't regret it.
