* Steve Heller goes deep on How To Read Nancy.

* Julia Wertz has conversations with her mother on The New Yorker.

* epic Village Voice rant by Derf. He's correct in that there was a point that the Voice was vital enough to be talked about constantly especially by culture-heads, and that this had nothing to do with design. He's also right in that they fired Feiffer for money concerns and had a comics issue when they had no comics, although I barely remember the cheekiness of that second one.

* finally, go look: Carson McNamara.
