LONG LIVE ARTHUR MAGAZINE!
Forgive me for keeping mum about the status of Arthur magazine, as I preferred to stay optimistic in the wake of its apparent demise. It’s now official that Arthur Magazine is on the path for resurrection. Arthur editor, Jay Babcock now has his baby safely back in his hands thanks to a second negotiation arrangement made between him and publisher Laris Kreslins. In regards to the melancholias symbolist ink drawing that has graced Arthur’s website for the past month Jay has the following to say:
“‘Arthur is in Avalon.’ In some versions of the story, he explained, the lady presides over the British island of Avalon, where Arthur is sent to heal his wounds.
“The whole thing is that he will return in our time of need,” Babcock said. “He is supposed to die and come back.”
