class=img_thumbleft>Beginning Sunday, September 18, the New York Times Magazine will launch a section called "The Funny Pages," which will include a six-month-long serial comic by the extremely talented graphic novelistChris Ware
, as well as a humor column and serial piece of fiction. In a press release, NYTMag editorGerald Marzorati
gushes, "We wanted a place in our pages for genre fiction -- mysteries, detective stories, and the like -- which is having a particularly vibrant moment in popular culture just now... Most of all we wanted to give our readers some new things that would bring a smile to their faces each Sunday morning, and our youngest readers a go-to destination when the paper arrives."
