Against the Fascist Creep by Alexander Reid Ross (AK Press) $16.95 – As the election of Donald Trump shows, fascism in all its white nationalist and “alt-right” permutations is alive and well in the United States. A terrifying tour of the history and influence of the forces that helped bring the forty-fifth president to power, Against the Fascist Creep maps the connections and names the names. It traces today’s often-disguised forms of rightwing extremism through the decades and across the globe to show how infiltration is a conscious and clandestine program for neofascist groups that seek to co-opt and undermine both mainstream and left-wing institutions in order to win elections, take political power, and create a new racist and authoritarian society.

Jillian Tamaki Launches Boundless at Quimby’s, In Conversation With Jessica Campbell 6/23

Jun
23
7:00 pm

In Jillian Tamaki’s new book Boundless (Drawn & Quarterly), Jenny becomes obsessed with a strange “mirror Facebook,” which presents an alternate, possibly better, version of herself. Helen finds her clothes growing baggy, her shoes looser, and as she drinks away to nothingness, the world around her recedes as well. The animals of the city briefly open their minds to us, and we see the world as they do. A mysterious music file surfaces on the internet and forms the basis of a utopian society—or is it a cult? Boundless is at once fantastical and realist, playfully hinting at possible transcendence: from one’s culture, one’s relationship, oneself. This collection of short stories is a showcase for the masterful blend of emotion and humor of award-winning cartoonist Jillian Tamaki.

  “Jillian Tamaki seems capable of drawing anything, in any style, and making it appear effortless. Her writing could be described in the same way, and it’s thrilling to see those twin skills of hers united in service of these daring, unpredictable, and quietly strange stories.”—Adrian Tomine, cartoonist of Killing and Dying

Jillian Tamaki is an illustrator and cartoonist based in Toronto. She is the co-creator along with her cousin Mariko Tamaki of the graphic novel Skim, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book and a finalist for the Governor General’s Award. Their second graphic novel This One Summer earned a Governor General’s Award and a Caldecott Honor. Tamaki’s first collection of her own comics was the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller and Eisner Award-winning, SuperMutant Magic Academy.

This event will feature Jillian Tamaki in conversation with Jessica Campbell, the artist of Hot or Not: 20th-Century Male Artists!

Jessica Campbell is from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada and is an enthusiast of jokes, painting and comics. She completed her MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she was the recipient of the Edward L. Ryerson Fellowship, and also a comics instructor. She has exhibited work in Canada, the United States, Australia, and Greece, and was selected as one of NewCity’s 2015 breakout artists. She is a member of the Chicago-based comics collective Trubble Club and has published comics with micro press Oily Comics, and contributed to Drawn & Quarterly: Twenty-Five Years of Contemporary Cartooning, Comics, and Graphic Novels.

“Too Much Fun Too” Comic Release with Logan Kruidenier and Live Musical Performance 3/10

Mar
10
7:00 pm

Logan Kruidenier’s experimental comic “Too Much Fun Too,” continues the mythological story of a tree-thing’s attempts to befriend and spend meaningful time with a turnip that it dug up. This work considers the nature of masochistic, repetitive routines, envious desperation and a scattered mentality.  Kruidenier loves creating work that deals with the universal, yet extremely personal theme of relationships between living beings, objects and media. TMFT also features a great poem by New York based writer and performer Connor Bush.  Logan Kruidenier has drawn major influence from artists such as Michael DeForge, Taiyo Matsumoto, Olivier Schrauwen, and video games such as Bioshock and the Super Smash Bros series.

“Niiiiiccccceeeee.” – Connor Bush, writer and performer.

The work of Logan Kruidenier has been featured in such places as: The Chicago Publisher’s Resource Center, Meathaus, Quimby’s Bookstore, the Mott St. Restaurant, the Beguiling, The Toronto Alternative Comics Festival, Ada Books and Desert Island Comics.
