Baffler no. 3 marks the first appearance of house anti-hero, Gedney Market, as well as the beginnings of The Baffler’s distinct style of cultural interpretation. To wit: Thomas Frank’s hipster demolition job and Rick Perlstein’s robust analysis of Scooby Doo. Laid out in a four-day marathon session in Kansas City, this issue was printed on a Macintosh laser printer there in the winter of 1992; at 108 pages, we doubled our previous output.
