You're accessing this slice of literary goodness for free because we believe anyone and everyone should be able to access the best in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art. And because we don't ask our readers to pay for Guernica, we do—for web hosting, server costs, and the other incidentals necessary to keep Guernica up and running, and, most importantly, open and available to as many people as possible, around the world.
If like us you believe in a widely accessible Guernica, consider supporting the magazine with a tax deductible donation or by subscribing. We'll only be asking for two weeks, three times a year—asking for support from readers like you on your own terms: our all-volunteer staff gives to Guernica out of love, and we extend that friendship to you. If you love Guernica, click to help make sure an ever-growing community can continue to read, react, and participate. Each month, more than 100,000 unique readers visit guernicamag.com—even a small amount, a couple of dollars, from just half of those visitors would sustain us for many, many moons.
Our infinite thanks,
The Guernica Team
Pots & Pans
By Lisa Lim
March 10, 2009
Please click here to view the comic.
Pots & Pans features a fantastical family in Queens, including a Chinese grandmother who replaces a leg lost to gangrene with a frying pan; Aunt Lola, who collects boxes of Marlboro cigarette cases for UPC codes; and many more grotesquely charming characters. The family is seen through the whimsical eyes of a little Chinese girl who likes to play drums on pots and pans.
