The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that next Tuesday McSweeney, an independent publishing house will print a one-time run of the “San Francisco Panorama” that will feature 16 pages of full-color comics by nearly 20 artists including Dan Clowes, Art Spiegelman, Adrian Tomine, Chris Ware, Alison Bechdel, and Jessica Abel.
In all, there will be 16 pages of full-color comics from nearly 20 artists, many from the Bay Area. The last page of the section, called Rear End, is for kids and will include comics, mazes, jokes and puzzles.
“The comics section of any Sunday newspaper has always been valuable entertainment,” said Oscar Villalon, McSweeney’s publisher. “But because of space constraints, comics have gotten smaller. This is our throwback, our reminder of how cool comics can be if you offer it in glorious color and give the artist a big canvas.”
The publication costs $16 and can be ordered online.
