The world's most philosophically inquisitive birds continue in their confrontation with the mysteries of the (at least to them) unknown while you, the reader, are left to find the proper perspective from which to view the diverse diffractions of Anders's angled arguments. Highlights in this issue include: crows, the pilot of the plane and doughnuts. See you there.
#4 is probably our favorite issue here at Copacetic. The lead story by Sarah Oleksyk ("Roadside," "Ivy"), of a pair of lovestruck misfits who meet at an all-night copy shop is a small, quiet classic that is also the subject of the wraparound cover (and it was selected by Lynda Barry for inclusion in the 2008 America's Best Comics anthology, so there). Vanessa Davis ("Spaniel Rage") and John Porcellino ("King-Cat") complete the issue with tales of friendship, club-hopping, and snowstorms. If you want to give Papercutter a try and aren't sure which issue to choose, we say start with this one. THIS ONE IS NOW OUT OF PRINT. However, the lead story by Sarah Oleksyk was collected in the 2008 edition of Best American Comics, a 200+ page deluxe hardcover volume edited by Lynda Barry, which, it so happens, is currently ON SALE here at Copacetic for only $8.88!
