Telling stories primarily with pictures is a challenge for writers because, you know, we like to use our words. But with the help of 17 artists, we reduced storylines to their essence for this fourth annual edition. Those artists range from current students at the Center for Cartoon Studies to longtime New Yorker contributor Edward Koren. The latter, Vermont’s cartoonist laureate, drew our cover in his famously hirsute style. Not all cartoons are “funnies,” of course. Inside you’ll find serious pieces about Vermont’s new laws, refugee resettlement and community policing. And we cover the arts with more art: a local Karen Carpenter tribute, a comic avatar of musician Billy Bratcher, a Japanese tattoo exhibit, and more. Oh, and do enter our first-ever adult coloring contest! Go ahead, color the Bern.
