The acclaimed quarterly comics anthology welcomes several new artists along with returning regulars Paul Hornschemeier, Sophie Crumb, Gabrielle Bell, Andrice Arp, and Kurt Wolfgang. Among the newcomers are rising stars Eleanor Davis (winner of the 2009 Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award), Tom Kaczynski, Joe Kimball and Ray Fenwick. Tim Hensley returns, with more of his brilliant "Wally Gropius" strips, as does fan-favorite Al Columbia! Also, a collaboration between O. Henry Prize-winning author Brian Evenson and Sammy the Mouse creator Zak Sally, and a ballpoint treasure from Built to Spill cover-master, Mike Scheer. Plus, this volume contains the first part of a 45-page Jim Woodring graphic novella, "The Lute String." This story, previously published only in Japan, features Woodring's signature characters — Frank, Pupshaw and Pushpaw — in a universe-bending saga that finds the trio in a very unexpected world of flying, shrieking demons and bulbous-faced monsters.
