New arrivals!

The 75th issue of The Believer arrived this week, with much glitter and pizazz.

These are just flying off the shelf, so hurry in or miss your chance to observe the similarities between fried chicken and cheesesteaks.

Unrelated, but equally (more?) important:
Good news for ye of little pocket money! Joe Sacco's Footnotes in Gaza is finally out in paperback.
I'm sure you don't need any convincing, but let's harken back. From the New York Times review:
"The vividness and pace of Sacco’s drawings, combined with a highly informed and intelligent verbal narrative, work extremely well in telling the story. Indeed, it is difficult to imagine how any other form of journalism could make these events so interesting. [...] Sacco’s pursuit of Palestinian and Israeli eyewitnesses as well as Israeli and United Nations documentation is relentless and impressive. He details the lives of those who help him, notably his fixer Abed, and brings to life two eras of the Gaza Strip, its towns packed with refugees in the early 1950s as they are today."

How floppy! How affordable! And, for extra points, let me just observe that after a sad absence from the Librairie, Alison Bechdel's Fun Home is back in stock.
