Seven Inches to Freedom #13 by Joe Lachut $3.00

*ZINES*

Cometbus #57 by Aaron Cometbus $5.00 – This issue: Comics in New York. In this special 35 year Cometbus anniversary issue Aaron talks with a bunch of cartoonists, comics scholars, publishers, shopkeepers (Gabe Fowler at Desert Island!), and librarians. Check out that list of artists and authors tagged on this, yo! He asks nitty gritty questions about process, personal philosophy, longevity, personal history and quirks — all the juicy stuff. Awesome artist portraits by Nate Powell and a rockin’ Jeffrey Lewis cover. -LM

Veneers: A Book of Short Stories by Dan Gleason, with illustrations by Luke Smarto $3.00 – Oh Dan Gleason, you dirty, dirty boy, we love you. One of our favorite local weirdos is back with the 58th book of his short stories, with awesome hilarious drawings by the great Luke Smarto. He knows life wasn’t going to be one big, long, wacky roller-skating video game pizza party (he even says so). He declares his shortcomings to his own flawless crush with such sentiments as “I’m a man of low character – a morally bankrupt soul. That underhanded chap who taught tai chi classes to folks who weren’t smart enough to know that he was faking tai chi.” He declares his dislike for those moving to the City of Angels: “No, I’m not going to trip with you…snorting cocaine in the bathroom…You know, there is an age when drug abuse is no longer fashionable. I believe that age to be eleven.” Sidenote: If you’re lucky enough to be at Quimby’s at the right time, you will see Mr. Gleason drop off his zines and you’ll think to yourself, “That man has a golden voice and should at all times be on all radio stations.” -LM

Belladonna of Sadness: A Companion Book to the 1973 Cult Japanese Anime Film by JC Gabel and Jessica Hundley (Hat & Beard Press) $60.00 – The final film in the adult-oriented Animerama trilogy, a visual spectacle of the film, loosely inspired by La Sorcière, Jules Michelet’s 1862 history of witchcraft and the occult, this book tells the story of a young woman who makes a pact with the devil to exact revenge after being raped and driven from her home. Spectacular watercolor paintings by Kuni Fukai marry the art nouveau artifice of artists like Aubrey Beardsley to ’60s psychedelia; the film’s North American distributor, Cinelicious Pics, describes it as “equal parts J.R.R. Tolkien and gorgeous, explicit Gustav Klimt-influenced eroticism.” This first printing of the book will include a Blu-ray disc of the 4k restored version of the feature film (!), with bonus features including interviews with the director, composer and illustrator of the film, original trailer and more. Once the first printing of the book is sold out, the Blu-ray will not be included with any future printings!

Quimby’s 25th Anniversary Celebration With Founder Steven Svymbersky 9/15!

7:00 pm

QUIMBY'S INSIDE 07-96978

Don’t miss the Quimby’s Bookstore 25th Anniversary Event 9/15: Founder Steven Svymbersky Shares the Mayhem of Underground Press and the Beginnings of Quimby’s Bookstore!

Quimby’s Bookstore opened on September 15th, 1991, a tiny store at Damen and Evergreen, serving up weird, saucy and aberrant DIY zines, books and comics to a Wicker Park that was a very different place than it is now. Two and a half decades later, the store continues to offer subversive printed matter in an environment that fosters a creative artistic community that employees jokingly call, “a tourist destination for cool people” as well as events, all with an inclusive yet snarky DIY punk aesthetic.

Quimby’s is proud to welcome back founder Steven Svymbersky to the store on the occasion of the store’s 25th anniversary. Svymbersky will present a history of zines and underground comics as well as sharing memories of his years as a zine publisher and the beginnings of Quimby’s Bookstore.

Quimby’s has a variety of things planned to celebrate our silver jubilee, including: an exclusive Chris Ware print celebrating our anniversary, the release of an printed store history with stories and graphics, a commemorative t-shirt by artist Gabby Schulz, an artisanal Marz Community Brewing Quimby’s beer with a specially designed label by Chicago artist Laura Park and more surprises.

This event also kicks off Wicker Park & West Town Lit Fest’s second year, which celebrates the neighborhoods’ literary past and present. Events around Wicker Park and West Town include a story slam, book swap, workshops, author readings and signings and more.
