and Eugene Robinson
—writers whose work I usually admire—into bigoted know-nothings, spouting absurd prejudices they would mock if they were aimed at almost any group other than fat people."
is an Australian quarterly print magazine which features five "extended (20 page) profiles of people worth knowing, across enterprise, science, politics, fashion and the arts." They're only just establishing

A founding father of DIY indie rock, Will Rigby
recounts the pilgrimages to locate underground rock legends
Alex Chilton, (during his wry Americana deconstructo anarchy phase), and the 'McCartney' to Chilton's Big Star 'Lennon', the Brydsian Chris Bell.

Perhaps Chris Ware
is not only the most interesting sequential artist
working today, but the most interesting graphic artist as well. Not familiar with his stuff? Like ACME Novelty Library
or Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth
