Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Leah Moore has posted a press release about her father Alan Moore’s newest project, “the 21st century’s first underground magazine.” It’s titled Dodgem Logic and will feature contributions from Moore, Melinda Gebbie, Kevin O’Neill and many more.
“As cheap and beautiful as a heartbreaking teenage prostitute, Dodgem Logic has a cover price of £2.50, with its content similarly tailored to the fiscal toilet-bowl that we are currently engaged in sliding down,” the release reads. “Regular columnists provide delicious, inexpensive recipes, wide-ranging medical advice, simple instructions for creating stylish clothing and accessories from next to nothing, guides to growing your own dinner by becoming a guerrilla gardener, and, in the first of Dave (The Self-Sufficient-ish Bible) Hamilton’s environmental columns, a bold experiment in living with no money. The same approach to helping readers deal with socio-economic meltdown and a blitz of repossessions is there in upcoming features on the present-day resurgence of the squatters’ movement, or in our communiqués from the Steampunk/ Post-Civilisation gang on how to start rebuilding culture and society before those things have broken down completely and our children are reduced to battering each other to a bloody pulp with their now-useless X-Boxes in a dispute over the last tub of pot noodles.”
The first issue will also contain a CD of “magnificent home-grown Northampton music.” It’s due in November from Knockabout Comics.
