  • image …Euskara, the Basque language, has its own comic book magazine, Xabiroi. Euskara is the single remnant of the languages spoken in southwestern Europe before the Romans took charge. Dei G. told us that the language’s history and rarity—less than a million people speak it—motivate him to create covers for the magazine that’ll help expand its reach.

Oh, For Lovely

  • image The Sandman by Samantha Kallis. “The project is a children’s book I’ve been tooling around with for a few years now. It’s a re-telling of the Sandman, and it’s actually a bedtime story my grandfather wrote to soothe my uncle when he was a child.”

  • image Tuck Forum, a report on new research from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, with art by Mario Zucca, who explains: “It accompanies an essay dealing with the efficiency of hospitals in India and how the US healthcare system could stand to adopt some Indian medical practices.”

Newsmakers

  • image The new Perfect Weather app is earning creators David Barnard, Julien Martin, and Elfred Pagan (DBA Contrast) kudos from many corners. PC Magazine praises its “beautiful iOS7 theme” and notes the app provides “a very slick way to convey a lot of information.” MacRumors says the app stands out in a crowd of hundreds for offering “detailed information packaged in a no-frills single-screen design.”
