Remember those Sunday mornings as a child, sprawled out in front of the fireplace, reading comics in the newspaper – the “funny pages” – as your parents cooked up some scrambled eggs and bacon (Americans/Brits) or assembled a plate of delectable meats and cheeses (Europeans)? While your childhood is now lost to the passing years, comics aren't only for kids. Here at uncube, where we are also keen on architectural amusement, we have something very special for you indeed.

We are very excited to announce that our favorite architecture-centered comic artist Klaus has joined the uncube team to toon about architecture in our magazine! Okay, actually we are much more than just “excited”: to us, this is a wish (or two) come true. For those of you who might not be familiar with Klaus (and for those of you who want to revisit some golden all-time classics), we show some of our favorites of his comics in the picture gallery. More Klaustoons can be found on Klaus’ webpage. We are giving you back your Sunday funny pages: Our first KLAUS’ KUBE will appear in the next issue of uncube magazine, No. 07: Off-places.
