The picks of the week from around the web.

  • Jane Meyer, “Covert Operations”. New Yorker piece on the oil billionaires Charles and David Koch and their bankrolling of the libertarian cause, and currently the Tea Party movement. Fascinating reading on the workings of private enterprise in American politics.
  • The Imp. All four issue of Daniel Raeburn’s fanzine available for download. Features on Dan Clowes, Jack T. Chick, Chris Ware and Mexican historietas that make up some of the best comics criticism of the last two decades. A must.
  • What if Kirby. Great new site on the King of comics, with detailed scans of original art.
