The Chicago Reader
Today, comics journalism fits largely into 1 of 2 categories:
Those who report, write and do their own artwork
Collaborations between journalists and artists
And that work helps fund our original reporting with media outlets and cultural organizations:
Chicago magazine
The Chicago Reader
Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago
Harold Washington Library
Nieman Journalism Lab
The Chicago Reporter
Illustrated Press
Kathy Has a Question
The Illustrated Press: Chicago
Our first comics journalism collection
Funded with a grant from Columbia College's Albert P. Weisman Foundation and crowd-sourced via Kickstarter, August 2012
68 pages
12 collected stories
previously available in stores
We tell engaging stories with some of our favorite publications:
How To Survive a Shooting
The Chicago Reader:

A fully interactive, illustrated investigation into how neighborhood boundaries form and change in Chicago.
The story of Nortasha Stingley's survival and recovery after her 19-year-old daughter was shot and killed in Grand Crossing.

Dozens of teens are shot and killed in Chicago each year. Miles Turner survived.

Now the 18-year-old's silent love-hate relationship with his wheelchair is an ongoing battle until he can walk again.
