The New Yorker serves up new Gauld, Pond, and Stein
Well well well, it's not every day that we have three D+Q authors represented in the New Yorker. This week, Tom Gauld covers the esteemed magazine with the charming "Holiday Track." Tom admits to being "fascinated by this strange annual migration where large trees come to the city for their final moment of glory.”
Meanwhile, Leslie Stein has contributed her first piece to the New Yorker, "The Man with a Discman." It's a short comic about the changes endemic to New York City life, and it's got all the hallmarks of a classic Stein comic - gorgeous drawings, sharply observed human quirks, and a perfect ending.
And in case you're thirsting for more content, Mimi Pond's most recent comic for the New Yorker Culture Desk brings us back to Halloween in the Bay Area with "A Spooky Midcentury Supper-Club Pot Luck." Get ready to bask in the barfing pumpkin, the jello salad, the impressive commitment to period-appropriate costuming, and more.
Don't forget, all three of these fantastic cartoonists have new books out, books that make excellent holiday presents for the readers in your life (or for you, you deserve a nice thing too). Pick up Baking with Kafka, Present, and The Customer is Always Wrong today!
