Found Magazine #9
by Davy Rothbart
It's once again time for an annual dose of Found Magic. Found Magazine collects found notes, pictures, items and compiles them into a fascinating read. The first thing I do when a new issue comes out is anxiously thumb through it and see if any of the dozens of things I've sent them over the years make the issue. The next thing I do is sit back and read the magazine cover to cover.
by Fritz Kahn / Uta von Debschitz / Thilo von Debschitz
This gorgeous, hardcover, full color Taschen artbook presents the work of an early, German "infographics" pioneer. Find out why the Nazis ran him out of Germany and burned his books!
Wake: Part 1
by Scott Snyder / Sean Murphy
In case you missed the first 5 issues of the epic sci-fi/horror series, Vertigo has collected them into this economical 112 page installment.
by Christopher Adams
The holidays can be a bit hazy, especially if you celebrate them like I do. Christopher Adams' art reflects that and illustrates that the line between a disaster and a happy holiday can be a thin one. Santa, airplanes, bleak snowy wasteland. Merry Christmas!
