THE INDEPENDENT SUNDAY REVIEW:
SPECIAL COMIC THEMED EDITION


As media partner for the Comica festival and to preview some of the guests and events, The Independent is publishing a special comics-themed edition of their Sunday Review, edited by Tim Lewis with assistance from Comica director Paul Gravett. As well as a cover-featured interview with Marjane Satrapi, a profile feature on Alan Moore, Melinda Gebbie and Lost Girls, an interview with Kevin Smith, and a preview of Guy Delisle’s Pyonyang, almost all of the magazine’s other regular departments will be comics-themed: Nick Abadzis illustrates the Food feature; Barnaby Richards does Gardening: Simone Lia does the Restaurant review; Neal Fox covers London Fashion Week; Paul Gravett provides the week’s world map on comics; Tom Gauld and Simone Lia are the guests in the How We Met column; Matt Broersma illustrates Dom Joly’s Mexican travelogue; and a one-page surreal vignette by Michael Kupperman. If that wasn’t enough, the issue also launches the Sunday Review’s ongoing weekly serialisation of the complete comic entitled Building Stories by Chris Ware. While this appeared last year in the New York Times Magazine, this version will be unedited and uncensored, as Ware intended it.
