At long last, the first issue of the 2012-13 school year is here! We’re really excited to get going and we’re especially glad to be featuring some talented new contributors! This is one of our leaner issues, but hopefully it’ll give you a taste of some of the really great things to come from both newcomers and oldcamers alike. Many thanks to Sarah Skinner for the stunning cover, editor caricatures, and the instant classic character, DJ Guns.  And with that, I give you Issue 35.
