Note: As of 10:00am this Monday morning the magazine’s digital issue has not yet been posted, so, for now, I’m relying on what’s available on other areas of newyorker.com.
Update: Digital issue posted this evening.
The Cover: as mentioned here last Friday, the new issue’s cover (above) was early released.
The Cartoons: As might be expected, several of this week’s eleven cartoons are current event-centric. Roz Chast’s and Paul Noth’s the most reflective, with Sofia Warren’s very much in the vicinity. If there’s a non-exclusive theme running throughout, it is domesticity: Lars Kenseth’s couple in the kitchen, Zach Kanin’s dad in the living room, a neighbor showing up to borrow a lot of sugar, Emily Flake’s couple at home in the hallway, and a dad in bed, with little patience to listen to his kid’s dream. Kim Warp’s way out there drawing bucks the surely coincidental at-home theme.
The Rea Irvin Talk Masthead Watch: Mr. Irvin’s iconic masthead (below) is still hidden away, a redraw in its place since the Spring of 2017. Read about it here.
