Arthur #33

Arthur #33

While this newspaper is clearly not a comic, it does have a comics pedigree. This newly revamped relaunch of Arthur has been one of the most anticipated releases around here this year - and it's well worth the wait. Arthur #33 includes a column by Thurston Moore, a definitive interview with guitarist Jack Rose, a conversation with cartoonist Rick Veitch and much more.

Sala's beautiful, gothic Delphine tells the story of Snow White, but from Prince Charming's perspective and in a contemporary setting.
