Chicago Alternative Comics Expo presents Kramers Ergot 9 Signing 6/10

7:00 pm


CAKE is excited to present a signing event for Kramers Ergot 9, with CAKE Special Guest Sammy Harkham. Joining the signing will be contributors Andy Burkholder, Anya Davidson, Kevin Huizenga, Patrick Kyle, John Pham, and Lale Westvind.

  “I think this is the best issue yet and I couldn’t be happier doing it with any other publisher. Fantagraphics is the place where the best of the low brow and the literary strands of comics are equally represented and cherished on their own terms, and that’s something I have always strived for with Kramers, as well. So it’s a great fit.” – Sammy Harkam

Since Kramers Ergot ‘s inception in 2000, it has introduced new talents and solidified aesthetics; each volume is an of-the-moment, state-of-the-medium manifesto. This anthology has always been a reflection of creator/editor Sammy Harkham’s comics passions, both past and future. Kramers Ergot 9 gathers many of the best and brightest together in one giant, oversized collection.

Quimby’s is proud to co-sponsor The Chicago Alternative Comics Expo [CAKE], a weekend-long celebration of independent comics, inspired by Chicago’s rich legacy as home to many of underground and alternative comics’ most talented artists– past, present and future. Featuring comics for sale, workshops, exhibitions, panel discussions and more, CAKE is dedicated to fostering community and dialogue amongst independent artists, small presses, publishers and readers. The Fifth Annual CAKE will take place on Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 12, 2016, at the Center on Halsted, 3656 N Halsted Ave. in Chicago. For more info about CAKE: cakechicago.com & Max Morris cakeexpo(at)gmail(dot)com.

Calling all Nerds, Slackers, and Comics Dandies!

Kramers Ergot will invade Chicago Saturday Dec 13th for a once in a lifetime ink stained event! While I am deeply saddened to report it is not at Quimby’s, I am glad our sister store has the chutzpa to undertake this epic endeavor!

So don’t sleep, don’t drink, don’t miss it. If I catch you at Quimby’s on Saturday I’ll make fun of you too cause you should really be at this signing!

ALSO Chicago Comics has limited copies of the new Kramers Ergot coming in for the signing so you better HOLLER at them if you know you want one! Since I don’t work there I’m gonna go off script and tell you this too!!!! I promise you this tour is the first place you can pick up a copy the new Kramers so if you “pre ordered” else where you probably won’t have a copy to get signed! So support your local comic shop and get it there, get it signed by comics legends…just don’t hug them too hard when you do!!!!

This will be awesome! Be a part of it!
