The two-time 2021 Eisner Award-nominated comics anthology returns for its seventh year!

The first new NOW of 2023 features all-new work from several contributors familiar to NOW readers as well as new artists from around the globe. Newcomers to this issue include Cynthia Alfonso (Spain) and Bhanu Pratap (India), while past contributors Noah Van Sciver (U.S.), Cecilia Vårhed (Sweden), and Kayla E. (U.S.) all return with new work. As a special feature of this issue, legendary cartoonist Peter Bagge (Hate) collaborates with Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer Matt Lawton on “The Cartoonist,” a satire of the now near-obsolete profession of newspaper gag cartooning.

“A deftly compiled collection of comics that champion the breadth, wit and invention of the form Now#12 is one of the strongest volumes yet of this acclaimed series.” —Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier
