Here 1989is the first re-print of Richard McGuire's cult comic strip. The six-page comic Here, which appeared in 1989 in Raw magazine, volume 2, number 1, was immediately recognized as a transformative work that would expand the possibilities of the comics medium. Its influence continues to be felt twenty-five years after its publication.
Here 1989coincides and accompanies with the release of Here, a development over 25 years of this original comic into a 360-page book, published by Hamish Hamilton.
