Isn’t this an awesome idea? I was thinking of it as a gift for my mother:

More a series of flash cards than an actual magazine, Abe’s Penny is a monthly volume of four postcards ($48 for six months) that subscribers receive one by one, every week. Each volume features a pairing of two artists, a series of images on the face coupled with a developing story on the reverse.

But then the cards began with pictures of dead birds, and that didn’t seem like such a nice suprise to get in the mail.
