Want to subscribe to the quarterly? Look no further.

Our mammoth anniversary issue includes a bumper crop of new art and writing: a 24-page full-color comic, a letters section commemorating our big anniversary year, a fair-sized collection of stories, a graphic nonfiction experiment called American Pie Graph, and a booklet of cliffhanger tales—five booklets, in sum, all packaged in an elaborate three-fold case.

Featuring an unbelievable lineup of new and regular contributors, including Oyinkan Braithwaite, Claudia Rankine, Julio Torres, Elena Passarello, Bob Odenkirk, Brian Evenson, Adrienne Celt, Lorrie Moore, Alison Bechdel, Jeff Tweedy, Jerry Saltz, Avery Trufleman, Hanif Abdurraqib, Ken Burns, and many many more authors, artists, musicians, podcasters, journalists, comedians, young children, lawyers, scholars, former presidential candidates, and others besides.
