Edited by Gary Groth. 2001 marks the 25th anniversary of The Comics Journal, the renowned monthly magazine of journalism, criticism and scholarship. This edition's cover features Joe Sacco, whose recent book of reportage during the Bosnia civil war, Safe Area Gorazde, has been both a commercial and critical success. Sacco contributes a new cover, a new strip, and is the subject of a long interview. Taking full advantage of the coffee-table size and color capacity, text-and-visual features include an appreciation by Jim Woodring on the great turn-of-the-century cartoonist T.S. Sullivant, with many examples of Sulivant's virtuoso pen and ink work; an essay by Don Phelps (Reading the Funnies) on Smokey Stover, with a generous portion of full-color strips; an appreciation of the obscure newspaper cartoonist W.E. Hill by Bill Griffith with examples of Hill's full-page Sunday strips; and an excerpt from the second chapter of B. Krigstein, a critical biography of Bernard Krigstein forthcoming from Fantagraphics. The special edition also features new strips done especially for the magazine by today's best cartoonists, including: Dave Cooper, Bill Griffith, Charles Burns, Gary Panter, R. Crumb, Ivan Brunetti, Jaime Hernandez, Justin Green, Mary Fleener, Gilbert Hernandez, Phoebe Gloeckner, Carol Tyler, Richard Sala, Jordan Crane, Dylan Horrocks, Roger Langridge and Chris Ware. Softcover, 12-in. x 12-in., 120 pages, PC/PB&W. Mature Readers.
