Also in this issue: Weirdo magazine gets the CBA treatment, with an exclusive interviews with cartoonist genius Robert Crumb (who created the legendary 1980s/90s humor rag), the aforementioned Mr. Bagge (Crumb’s editorial successor), and Aline Kominsky-Crumb (Crumb spouse and editor of Weirdo‘s final run). Also included is a tribute to the late, great historian, Dr. Jerry Bails, the father of comics fandom. Plus a delighful gallery of the great Will Eisner’s handmade Valentines drawn for his wife, the debut of a slew of new columnists, and the return of our regular contributors, all showcased in the mag’s newly expanded format.
