The brand new New Yorker (March 10, 2014) features what I believe to be an unprecedented single issue contribution by a cartoonist: a dozen pages, in color. The piece, by Roz Chast, ?Can?t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?? is also the title of her forthcoming graphic memoir (coming in May from Bloomsbury USA. The cover appears to the left).
I don’t know the details of the arrangement between Roz and the magazine, but this feels like Roz got 12 pages of free advertising in the New Yorker and probably got paid for it.
