It’s still summer, people, hasn’t gone anywhere YET. You can still get down with the “superyacht-sized” MONOCLE MEDITERRANEO newspaper. Why you ask? Summer, beaches, boating. “What?” you say. “Italo-pop”, I say. Tunisian holidays. Alfresco cinemas of Athens and Mykonos. White summer wardrobe. Milanese architecture on the Italian Riviera. Yachting. SUMMER DAMMIT!!! (What? you say? What? Oh. At least you can read about it….)

It’s been years since the beloved 'Sup graced us with a new issue (and apparently will indeed be some time before another official one). Until then we have this limited “special edition” mini-issue centered around the ‘Sup team’s music-festival-out-in-a-desert-oasis, DAY IN THE DESERT, gloriously designed by Richard Turley, “hand-spray-painted and individually poly-bagged”. Can’t say I know any of the bands, and barely much of the noise ‘n grace movement, but by the look of these pages, and the stories within, it appears to have been a spiritual enriching experience indeed.

A professor specializing in the “old” media of comics collaborates with a professor in “new media studies” (specifically digital studies) on a special issue of the journal CRITICAL INQUIRY, as comics and graphic novels assimilate into “museums and the academy”. Cases: R. Crumb’s rejected New Yorker cover (pictured). Lynda Barry’s “Car and Batman”. Hellboy and Rodin. Chris Ware. Minnie Gloekner’s “Minnie’s Third Love: Or, Nightmare on Polk Street”. Art Spiegelman, “What the Fuck Happened to Comics?” Spiegelman: "…the most beautiful books possible since the middle ages are much easier to make because of the thing that’s supposedly killing them: the digital revolution…". Joe Sacco. “Charlie Chaplin and His Shadows”. Autobiography.

Neptun: Take me to Iceland so that I will see the top! The pate of the world - in the mineral sunset. The wide plateau - decorate her in rivers. The cerulean redux of the north…How could I forget you? But behind the cotton mists, when the pages lay down like grass, design is and was, ferocious in simplicity.

We’re not quite sure what IDEOLOGIE ("a triumph of style") is, but we have it (and kinda dig it): "A spectre is haunting the world—-the spectre of fashion. All the powers of white magic have entered into an unholy alliance to exorcise this spectre, to capture it, to learn to cast a glamour. Where is the opposition that has not hurled back the branding approach? In warfare, one’s helmet should have a panache. What we lack in veracity, we make up in ideologie." Compadres of n+1.

HOLO, issue #1. Their mandate: "Consumer electronics have obsolesced science fiction, museums are promising digital revolutions, and laboratories have set up artist-in-residence programs. While the edges of science and technology can be disorienting, we see both PERIL and POSSIBILITY." (Capitals ours.)



"Towering installations visualizing scientific data, robotic assemblies turned kinetic sculptures, responsive 3D-printed environments that mimic life—as consumer electronics become indistinguishable from science fiction, contemporary artists and designers are prototyping fantastical futures before our very eyes."
