In 1989, Richard McGuire's Here began as a six-page story that ran in Raw. In 2010, Pantheon announced that a full-length graphic novel based on the concept would be released, and the book saw print in 2014. In 2006, acclaimed cartoonist Chris Ware wrote an essay on it in Comic Art #8, marking the first time since 1989 that the original short was reprinted in full.
