This issue, one of the most exciting graphic talents of the past two decades is interviewed: Charles Burns, whose work in RAW, Taboo, and Death Rattle had by this time introduced him to a generation of comics aficionados. Burns provided an original cover for this issue of the Journal, which features a memoir of comics legend Sheldon Mayer and Doug Allen and insane Gary Lieb sketchbook pages as well. Plus a review of Dan Clowes's Eightball and alternative women cartoonists in England. As always, that's just part of the story, as this issue also includes the usual informative news, feisty reviews, combative letters column, and more!
