New York Times bring city’s stories to life with comic tales

The New York Times Magazine has a new series featuring New York stories by a dozen outstanding comics artists, introduced by a marvellous tale from  Kevin Huizenga.

Other creators involved are Bill Bragg, Robert G. Fresson, Tillie Walden, Wesley Allsbrook, Bianca Bagnarelli, Sammy Harkham, K. L. Ricks, Tom Gauld, Andrew Rae, Francesco Francavilla and David Mazzucchelli.

They’re a smashing and varied selection it would be wonderful to see tales from British towns and cities get similar treatment.
