How's that for an early Christmas present? Rick Veitch draws the cover for the return of free counterculture broadsheet newspaper. Except it's no longer free. But it does give you a lot for about five bucks. And includes an appreciation from Alan Moore…
GIANT-SIZED Broadsheet newspaper
Sixteen gigantic 15″ x 22.75″ pages (8 color, 8 b/w)
Available Dec. 22, 2012
After a four-year sabbatical, beloved revolutionary sweetheart Arthur returns to print, renewed, refreshed, reinvigorated and in a bold new format: pages as tall and wide as a daily newspaper on compostable newsprint, with ads only on the back cover(s). Amazing!
In partnership with Portland, Oregon's Floating World Comics, Arthur's gang of idiots, know-it-alls and village explainers are back, edited by ol' fool Jay Babcock and art directed by Yasmin Khan.
This issue's contents include…
