Jillian Tamaki Launches Boundless at Quimby’s 6/23

Jun
23
7:00 pm

Join award-winning cartoonist Jillian Tamaki (SuperMutant Magic Academy, This One Summer) for the launch of her new book: the inventive and incisive Boundless. At once fantastical and realist, Boundless explores the intersection (and overlap) between the virtual and IRL worlds. From Jenny, who becomes obsessed with a strange “mirror Facebook,” which presents an alternate, possibly better, version of herself; to Helen, who finds her clothes growing baggy and her shoes looser as she shrinks away to nothingness, these evocative, strange, and magical stories showcase Tamaki’s skill as an artist and storyteller.

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.

“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.

Emil Ferris Debuts Her Graphic Novel My Favorite Thing is Monsters

Mar
4
7:00 pm

My Favorite Thing is Monsters by Emil Ferris (Fantagraphics Books) is a murder mystery, a family drama, a sweeping historical epic, and a psychological thriller about monsters, real and imagined, within and without. Set against the tumultuous political backdrop of late ’60s Chicago, the precocious Karen Reyes tries to solve the murder of her beautiful and enigmatic upstairs neighbor, Anka Silverberg, a holocaust survivor, while we get to watch the interconnected and fascinating stories of those around her unfold. My Favorite Thing Is Monsters is a revelatory work of striking originality and will undoubtedly be greeted as the debut graphic novel of the year.

“Absolutely astonishing” – Chris Ware, Building Stories

“No one has ever made a comic like Emil Ferris …it threatens not merely to exceed established standards of excellence, but to set new ones.” — Sam Thielman, The Guardian

Emil Ferris grew up Chicago during the turbulent 1960s, where she still lives, and is consequently a devotee of all things monstrous and horrific. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from The School of the Art Institute. This is her first graphic novel
