Created by Pulitzer Prize finalist Matt Bors, The Nib publishes daily online comics that include political cartoons, comics journalism, essays and memoir, exploring the news of the day and what’s currently shaping culture. This is the first issue of their new print magazine, themed on death.


In this issue:


  • In a richly illustrated piece of comics journalism, artist and writer Andy Warner explores how tech industry kings are desperately trying to innovate their way out of facing their own mortality
  • When was the first time you saw a dead body? That’s the question posed to four people in very different walks of life. Their illustrated anecdotes reveal the many ways humans react when faced with death
  • Fiery anti-capitalist author Barbara Ehrenreich talks about why our cultural obsession with ‘wellness’ is actually hurting us
  • The Intercept investigative journalist Liliana Segura and artist Jackie Roche team up for a bold look at the moral and technical history of lethal injection in the United States
  • In a powerful piece of comics memoir, artist Ted Closson shares an intimate and emotionally resonant story about coming to terms with the death of his infant son
  • A update on classic newspaper comics: a collection of original quick-hit comic strips from hilarious artists like Matt Lubchansky and Joey Alison Sayers


Issues two, three and four of The Nib are also available in the Stack shop.
