- (1Q2017) Adam McGovern’s THIS: LOOK AT THOSE CAVEMEN GO. Mark Russell: “I envision [Snagglepuss] like a tragic Tennessee Williams figure; Huckleberry Hound is sort of a William Faulkner guy, they’re in New York in the 1950s, Marlon Brando shows up, Dorothy Parker, these socialites of New York from that era come and go. I’m looking forward to it; that’s what I’ll do after The Flintstones.”
- (1Q2017) Josh Glenn and Rob Walker’s POLITICAL OBJECTS SERIES: INTRODUCTION. “The objects include overtly political artifacts both charismatic and absurd, and items whose stealthily political nature will surprise you; the stories range from the uplifting to the poignant to the unexpectedly illuminating.”
- (1Q2017) Stephen Duncombe’s POLITICAL OBJECTS installment, PROTEST SIGN. “Our funny, ironic, and oh-so-clever message backfired.”
- (1Q2017) Anne Boyer’s POLITICAL OBJECTS installment, ALL KNEES AND ELBOWS OF SUSCEPTIBILITY AND REFUSAL. “Politics right now is kept off-limits via paradox: the not-any of what we really need packaged in the too-much we can’t stand.”
- (1Q2017) Ben Greenman’s POLITICAL OBJECTS installment, MATCHBOX CAR. “Prince had just died. I had just started writing a book about him. I knew that I needed a little red Corvette, somehow, as a talisman.”
- (1Q2017) Luc Sante’s POLITICAL OBJECTS installment, CAMPAIGN PAMPHLETS. “In the fall of 1968 I was presented with a dilemma: Peace and Freedom, or Freedom and Peace?”
- (1Q2017) Virginia Heffernan’s POLITICAL OBJECTS installment, HRC PAINTING. “She seems like a brilliant bluestocking grandmother from the last century, a figure for the whole quaint American promise.”
