It is always an exciting day when the new MONOCLE comes in (The Great Global Rethink Issue: From nation to shop to home), but the new Superheroes issue of Colors also came in.
I was expecting the Colors#80, Superheroes issue (international to local heroes) to be more photographic in its presentation, but with this issue Colors jumped into the comic book / graphic novel style. Well worth looking at! And while I really liked the idea of the Collectors issue, this one is more likely to find a place on my shelf. Because whether your favorite is Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Wonderwoman, or Sandman, there is a superhero story for everyone.
And Monocle? I can't wait to get back to work to check out the story on the independent bookseller challenging the internet giants. You might be more interested in local coffee shops in the UK, or the Swiss bike maker for the urban rider. And then there is that fantasy trip to Barcelona.
