Cometbus #57 cover

Cometbus #57

By Aaron Cometbus

100 pages, perfect bound, black and white illustrations.

The comics scene is thriving in New York, and comics play an oversized role in the city’s myth. But why? In this special issue of Cometbus we go door-to-door, uptown to downtown, asking the questions that other rags are either too informed or too polite to pose. We visit cartoonists like Gary Panter, Julia Wertz, Ben Katchor, Adrian Tomine, and Gabrielle Bell, but also comics scholars, publishers, shopkeepers, and librarians. Featuring beautiful illustrations by March artist Nate Powell and an unusual Al Jaffee interview that ties it all together in the end.
