GIGANTIC ONLINE APRIL 2010
04/01/10
 


It's April and we're excited. Not only because it's April but because we have a lot of great material to share with you. We recently launched our second print issue—Gigantic's first theme issue—Gigantic America. In exploration of this theme we asked writers we venerate to write biographies of famous Americans. To further of our aim of maximizing the potential of what we think is an idea worth maximizing the potential of, we had a call for submissions for writers to submit biographies of famous Americans for this online April post. And we're happy to say that we got a lot of great work, and have selected five to publish with original work by John Dermot Woods.

We're also incredibly thrilled to announce that beginning this month we'll be serializing UNTIL I FIND IT, an illustrated book by Leni Zumas and Luca Dipierro; one chapter each month. UNTIL I FIND IT is loosely based on a full-length animated film that Zumas and Dipierro are working on.

As a preview of our print issue, and because we want to give you an idea of how good the print issue is, we're publishing online our interview with Sam Lipsyte author of the recently released novel The Ask.

Better bowlegs than no legs at all,

The Editors
