OUT OF STOCK!
Behold! The wonder of the New Format! Yes, it's true: that cornerstone of the world of comics has undergone yet another make over. This time around it has -- more or less -- been subjected to MOME-ization, in that has been shrunk to 7 1/2" x 9 1/2" (which is half way between the old Journal size and that of MOME) while seeing everything else about it upgraded to the MOME format: stiff, glossy covers contain heavy, bright-white paperstock (except for the 44-page full color comics classics section, which is, at least this time out, appropriately printed on heavyweight cream stock), for a heftier and more solid feel, which shows TCJ following the medium in its migration from the ephemeral, rack-displayed and box-stored, magazine format, to the permanent, shelf-friendly, book format. #288, the inaugural issue of this format, features "The Best Comics of 2007," along with interviews galore -- Paul Karasik, Bryan Talbot, Peter Kuper, Cathy Malkasian, Nick Bertozzi, and Joe Sacco interviewing Rutu Modan -- and, wonder of wonders, the comics classics section features 44 pages of that fashion illustrator turned Golden Age comics great, Tarpé Mills, the bulk of which is devoted to her greatest creation, Miss Fury!
