WOW! This is an amazing comic book. This oversize (10" x 12") comic book magazine is filled with 44 pages of stunning pantomime (silent) comics, composed entirely in blue and orange - and combinations thereof. You really need to hold this one in your hands and take it in, one spread at a time. Jungle Book was never like this! RECOMMENDED

Here it is: the final (>sob!<) Peanuts strips by Charles M. Schulz, the last of which, the final Sunday page, originally appeared on the same day as Schulz's obituary, as he passed on from this world (and doubtless onto the Sphere of True Comics) the day before its publication.

And, to top it all off, this volume is introduced by none other than the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama! A fitting finale.

William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Carolyn Cassady, Gregory Corso, Lawrence Felinghetti, Gary Snyder and many more herein provide thoughtful, forthright recollections of Kerouac, his scene and the times in which they mixed. Gifford and Lee weave them together...
Picking up, more or less, where Ganges left off, Kevin Huizenga's new series, Fieldercontinues to map new worlds for comics. The issue opens up – after an intriguing symbolization of the nature of thought on the inside front cover – withBona, a deconstructive remix of Sam Glanzman’sKona(which featured, improbably yet likely, scripts by Lionel Ziprin), published by Dell in the early 1960s. This story, which is bifurcated, with another, earlier part of the story appearing later(!) in the issue, highlights formal aspects of classic comics narratives while simultaneously reflecting on their generic tropes and the cultural milieu that produced...
