 Here 1989 is 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 1989 coincides 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.

Richard McGuire is a regular contributor to The New Yorker. His work has appeared in The New York Times, McSweeney's, Le Monde and Libération.

He has also designed and manufactured his own line of toys, and he is the founder and bass player of the band Liquid Liquid.
