Afterparty: A Novella by Anne Elizabeth Moore (Sonnenzimmer) $15.00 – In the not-too-distant future, a full third of the US population will have autoimmune disorders—horrible, vindictive diseases that needlessly attack separate systems of the body and cause pain, disfiguration, and eventually death for many sufferers. They also presage a genetic mutation, however, that allows a segment of the world’s current inhabitants to survive the Überflu of 2017, a rapidly mutating virus now at work overcoming eradication by your soaps and detergents, antibiotics, and high-end medicines. Science calls it the bacterial apocalypse, and when the world as we know it comes to an end, only the sick will survive in a deeply flawed utopia. Written by journalist, artist and Quimby’s ally Anne Elizabeth Moore. Published by another Quimby’s ally, Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi at Chicago print studio Sonnenzimmer.

Heavy: A Memoir of Wyoming, Bmx, Drugs, and Heavy Fucking Music by J. J. Anselmi (Barnacle Books) $15.95 – In twenty heavy chapters, this book chronicles Anselmi’s experiences growing up as a straight edge, BMX-riding metal head in Rock Springs, Wyoming, a place with one of the highest per capita suicide rates in the United States. His grandpa was a well-known businessman and politician in the area, and was featured in a 1977 60 Minutes episode for his alleged connections to organized crime. This is only the beginning of Anselmi’s heavy saga, and it interweaves all of the social and personal history one might expect from a story like this—including Black Sabbath, Pantera, and Metallica logo tattoos, explorations in LSD, metal and BMX culture, self-loathing and sobriety, and—finally—a very unique perspective on what it means to live in a heavy fucking world.

Quimby’s Welcomes Brian Chippendale and Nick Drnaso 2/20

Feb ’16
7:00 pm

BMN.tourposter_ChicagoBrian Chippendale (Puke Force) is hitting the road with Nick Drnaso (Beverly). Cartoonist and Lightning Bolt drummer Chippendale’s debut with Drawn & Quarterly is a dark and dense social satire that comments on social media narcissism, the malice of the right, and the hypocrisies of the left. Drnaso’s Beverly delves into the barely repressed anxieties and obsessions of suburban teens. Join Brian Chippendale and Nick Drnaso for an evening of great comics and book signings!

Brian Chippendale is a musician and artist based in Providence, Rhode Island. He was one of the founding members of the Fort Thunder collective. Chippendale is the author of Maggots, If n Oof, and Ninja, and the drummer/singer half of the noise rock band Lightning Bolt. His most recent publication Puke Force comes out this Fall. More info here.



Nick Drnaso was born in 1989 in Palos Hills, Illinois. He has contributed to several comics anthologies, self-published a handful of comics, been nominated for three Ignatz Awards, and co-edited the second and third issue of Linework, Columbia College’s annual comic anthology. Drnaso lives in Chicago, where he works as a cartoonist and illustrator. His debut publication Beverly comes out this Fall. More info here.
