Readers may well be introduced to the fotonovela today in Tablet Magazine. Ilan Stavans (author of Nextbook Press’s Resurrecting Hebrew) chats with deputy editor Gabriel Sanders about the innovative Latin American genre, which is like a graphic novel with photographs instead of drawings, and about the new one he helped produce, Once@9:53am, about the 1994 bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish community center that killed 85 and wounded more than 300.

The bombing was actually back in the news this week, with Argentina’s foreign minister denying reports that his country had given up investigations into that bombiing as well as a 1992 bomb at Israel’s embassy that killed 29. Apparently Argentina agreed to let the cases go in order to improve trade ties with Iran—which is expected to have been behind the slaughters.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
