Kate Brideau PhD has two new zines on this here site, Radiator Comics! What fun! What luck! What…is going on in her brain that causes her to make these images? You’ll have to find out, by picking up issues two and three of Maps & Diversion!
ETA: 12/17/14 Kate’s first published article has just been made available for reading in the Journal of Visual Culture! It’s all about the typeface, Impact, and its…well…impact on internet memes. She cowrote the article with Charles Berret, a PhD student at Columbia University. Way to go, Kate!
This week we add two books I’ve been hoping would join the Radiator catalog for a while now. Don’t Cry Wolfman Chicago by Nate Beaty collects a frenetic and biting look at modern adult life in a bustling city.

And if that wasn’t enough, we’ve added a tote bag, in which you can place these books.
