Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Comics Journal has, for 25 years, reigned as the world's premier magazine covering the art of comics. With its fiercely independent editorial stance and its unashamedly high-falutin' aesthetic standards, the Journal has been the recipient of numerous awards and libel suits over the last quarter century. Its interview subjects reads like a Who's Who of the cartooning profession from Jules Feiffer and Ralph Steadman to R. Crumb and Art Spiegelman.<P>Twice a year the Journal is published in a special "coffee table" edition, a cross between a magazine and an art book, combining the magazine's patented journalistic and scholarly features — wide-ranging interviews, iconoclastic criticism, and scholarly essays — with new comic strips by the most innovative cartoonists working today. The 2002 Summer Special spotlights master cartoonist Jim Woodring with a spectacular cover painting, two essays on the artist's oeuvre by Donald Phelps and Kenneth Smith, and an interview. Text-and-art features include an appreciation of the cartoonist W.E. Hill by Zippy-creator Bill Griffith (with many examples of Hill's gorgeous tabloid-sized Sunday pages) and an expansive appreciation of Jack Kent's King Aroo strip.

Synopsis:
