The Magazine, a tablet publication I’ve contributed an illustration to, is Kickstarting a printed collection of some of their best articles from their first year of publication. Good stuff. Not political. Sort of “for curious people,” I believe is their tag line.
NSFWcorp, where I’ve been contributing and editing comics since the first issue earlier this year, has sold to the tech site PandoDaily, bringing over its core staff as well as David Sirota to refocuses more on Silicon Valley. Paul Carr and Sarah Lacey wrote about the deal separately today, here and here.
Unfortunately, “nsfwcorp” will cease to exist as an entity, but the staff will continue to do what they’ve always done in a new investigative reporting arm at the now-renamed Pando.com. Most importantly (to me) print will not only continue, but continue to feature comics in a newly redesigned, beefed up edition called “PandoQuarterly.” It will be released… quarterly.
Tucked in both Lacey and Carr’s big announcement is a much smaller announcement: I’ve been working on packing the next print edition full of comics. The first issue due out in December will feature comics journalism from Susie Cagle, Tom Humberstone, Sarah Jaffe and Molly Crabapple, as well as the regular stable of cartoons from Brian McFadden, Ted Rall, Jen Sorensen, Scott Bateman, and Ryan Pequin.
