Presenting the third annual all-comics issue of Lumpen
magazine, including comic work by groundbreaking local and

correlates to the launch 105.5 WLPN, which is a brand new non-commercial
radio station based out of Bridgeport that will showcase underground
and innovative programming and feature distinctly curated music from a
variety of genres as well as cultural commentary, not unlike the variety
of comics and artists in Lumpen magazine.
