McSweeney's Quarterly Concern

McSweeney's Quarterly Concern

It feels like Christmas every time an issue of McSweeney's arrives in the mail. And even better, it's a Christmas where you haven't ripped tiny holes in your presents to figure out what's inside, so you have no idea what you're getting. Truly inspirational and exciting, like finding a small Ed Ruscha print at the bottom of your Cornflakes.

It's a great read, and I got lots of looks wile reading it at the cafe. I hope they do more issues in this format. Issue 33 of McSweeney’s Quarterly a one-time only, Sunday-edition-sized newspaper—the San Francisco Panorama. Packed with news and sports and arts coverage, and comics (sixteen pages of glorious, full-color comics, from Chris Ware and Dan Clowes and Art Spiegelman and many others besides) and a magazine and a weekend guide, is an attempt to demonstrate all the great things print journalism can (still) do, with as much first-rate writing and reportage and design (and posters and games and on-location Antarctic travelogues) as they can get in there. Expect journalism from Andrew Sean Greer, fiction from George Saunders and Roddy Doyle, dispatches from Afghanistan, and much, much more.

Ron Rege Jr. deserves a hardcover anthology, wonderful!! Against Pain is the first collection of multipage anthology pieces by Ron Regé, Jr. The storytelling side of his expressive work is featured in these comic strips gathered from McSweeney’s, The New York Times, Kramers Ergot, NON, Rosetta, Arthur, The Comics Journal, and Drawn & Quarterly’s anthology. Suicide bombers, art appreciation, a Lynda Barry “cover,” and even a Tylenol-sponsored comic about pain are brought together under the theme of suffering and how people cope with it. Against Pain also includes the alt-comics zine classic Boys:a twenty-two-page collaborative comic—considered by many to be Regé’s finest work—illustrating the “lust life” of a friend in explicitly honest and hilarious detail.

  • A unique reading experience in both that it is historicle fiction and about a subject not well known: the life of refugees from South Africa.

  • Confound everyone with a t-shirt that makes no sense. Nope, it's not a new brand. The perfect non-statement for the information age.

  • Introducing the first installment in a proposed series of 377 reference books, all written by Dr. and Mr. Doris Haggis-on-Whey, a team of highly energized and deeply focused scientists with over sixty-seven combined years of exper... Introducing the first installment in a proposed series of 377 reference books, all written by Dr. and Mr. Doris Haggis-on-Whey, a team of highly energized and deeply focused scientists with over sixty-seven combined years of experience at their command, including six months spent lifting awkwardly-sized boxes. Cover is foil-stamped and leather-inspired. Interior pages are full color and illustrated without reserve. This book does not contain a warning label, but if it did, it would advise readers to enjoy its pages only in small and furtive doses, such as while waiting your turn at tetherball.

  • Where else would you get, every 2 months or so, a lesson on poke-poling monkey-faced eels, a vintage short film of Dennis Hopper nearly blowing himself up in front of a not-quite-packed arena in the 1980s, an eerily spooky restora... Where else would you get, every 2 months or so, a lesson on poke-poling monkey-faced eels, a vintage short film of Dennis Hopper nearly blowing himself up in front of a not-quite-packed arena in the 1980s, an eerily spooky restoration of an early anti-semitic film marking the debut of Bois Karloff, and the complete filmed performance of Stairway to Heaven performed from finish-to-start, completely in reverse? This is the greatest DVD magazine in the world. Its closest competitor, Res Magazine, seems to be floundering, but Wholphin is quickly making up for lost time. My current favorite subscription.
