At last, a collection of Stan Mack's groundbreaking and deeply human "Real Life Funnies" comic strips comes to bookstores in June 2024 (Fantagraphics). The strip, which ran for 20 years in The Village Voice, followed the exploits and humor (intentional or otherwise) of real New Yorkers, in their own words. Available for pre-order now from your favorite bookstore.
"The strip's singular comedy-reality hybrid depicted and defined the city of my youth, shaping my sensibility then, still amusing and charming me now." —Kurt Andersen
"Wrenching joy from the superficially mundane, meaning from the seemingly trivial, this is the stuff of genius. A word I do not use lightly." —Jake Tapper
