Good news for lovers of hard-hitting investigative journalism. The highly anticipated release of McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern No. 33 will arrive in the form of a 300-page single edition daily newspaper: “San Francisco Panorama.” Better news for us (broke as hell) Bay Area kiddies: the Quarterly will be available to us for the (much discounted) price of $5 on the day it comes out, Dec. 8.

The bylines alone reek of staggering genius. Writing from Michael Chabon, Miranda July, Roddy Doyle, Stephen King, William T. Vollman, Berkeley’s own Poet Laureate Robert Hass and 100 more. 16 pages of comics from Art Spiegelman, Chris Ware and Dan Clowes. Pull-out posters. Deciphering gourmet ramen. Living with Yellow Dwarves. Making sense of an Afghan election. Making sense of that dilapidated, retrofitted bridge of ours.

In the spirit of resurrecting print journalism, the “Panorama” will feature headlining Bay Area stories from the day of its publication, a collaboration of journalists from the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Jose Mercury News, the Oakland Tribune and the L.A. Times.

Final broadsheet edited by Dave Eggers himself.

Don’t miss this, you guys. You’ll be sorrier than a three-dollar bill.
