Our headliner this issue is Alison Bechdel, whose memoir Fun Home was one of the most acclaimed graphic novels of 2006. She delves into life, death, her work and the banning of her book in Missouri with interviewer Lynn Emmert. Next, we offer an interview with Golden Age cartoonist Fred Guardineer, who is perhaps best known for his work on comics such as Zatara, The Durango Kid, Detective Comics and Crime Does Not Pay. Our glorious full-color comics section will feature Get Lost, The Comic Designed to Send You, future Spider-Man team Ross Andru and Mike Esposito's post-Kurtzman humor comic of the 1950s. Plus, an ample array of comics history, analysis and criticism.
