Many people think the newspaper is dying, but apparently not Art Spiegelman, Chris Ware, Dan Clowes, Adrian Tomine, Micheal Chabon, Miranda July, Stephen King, Chip Kidd or any of the other dozens of contributors to McSweeney's #33, The San Francisco Panorama.
Some might say this isn't a newspaper at all because what kind of newspaper is 328 full-color pages with a 16-page comics section, book reviews, investigative journalism, pull-out posters and more? To those people we say, "shut up." Shut up and enjoy not one, but two contributions from Jon Adams.
Here's the first one: The Optimist.
Then there's How to Fake a Horrible Fake Illness, a children's activity designed and illustrated by Jon and written by Jenny Traig.
If your local bookstore can't hook you up, the internet can.
