Blown Covers

  RAW news, TOON Books and New Yorker covers you were never meant to see
From the RAW Archives! The very first “caption contest:”
For RAW #8, Art and Françoise had a number of single panels and images they hadn’t yet published - “Because there were no punchlines,” they say. So, they put the images up on the wall, invited their friends over, and gave everyone post-it notes. People walked around sticking captions on the images. If you laughed at someone else’s caption, you put a check mark on the post-it. The winning captions and images were published in RAW Gagz - an insert in RAW #8.
