The Believer: The Art Issue

The latest issue of The Believer, put out by the McSweeney's media empire, is dedicated to Art. Featuring their usual mix of interviews and articles on a wide range of subjects, this issue contains features on artist Andrea Zittel, an interview with painter Jerry Moriarty by cartoonist Chris Ware, a piece on Kymaerica - an alternate universe created by the grandson of designers Charles and Ray Eames, and more.

There's also a brand new comic section debuting in this issue that's edited by Alvin Buenaventura of the prolific Buenaventura Press. This issue will feature strips by Charles Burns, Chicago's Lilli Carré and Anders Nilsen, Al Columbia, Ron Regé Jr., a new edition of Boy's Club (which is hilarious) by Matt Furie, and work by many more.

And on top of that the cover of this issue is a collaboration by cartoonists Charles Burns and Chris Ware.

Available in Chicago at Quimby's and other bookstores, and through McSweeny's.
