This month sees the publication of the enormous, amazing Drawn & Quarterly: Twenty-Five Years of Contemporary Cartooning, Comics, and Graphic Novels, a collection of work from the cartoonists who have made the Montreal-based comics publisher Drawn & Quarterly one of the best small presses in the world. The book features work from Kate Beaton, Michael DeForge, Jillian Tamaki, Guy Delisle, Art Spiegelman, and Adrian Tomine—plus this story, first printed in RAW in 1990 but never before published online, by the great Lynda Barry. –Dan Kois
