P.S. Astute Quimby’s historians will remember beloved director Arthur Jones’ comics consigned here in 2002: 900 Lb Gorilla and Magic Pants when he was but a young comics-maker, as well as his book Post-it Note Diaries. Further, said astute Quimby’s historians will also recall artist Matt Furie’s comics and books sold at our fine establishment as well, featuring such titles as Boys Club, Dungeon Family and Night Riders. Quimby’s thanks Arthur, Matt and friends for including Quimby’s in this endeavor!


Derf Backderf presents Kent State, Quimby’s Virtual Event 9/24

Sep ’20
7:30 pm

On May 4, 1970, the Ohio National Guard gunned down unarmed college students protesting the Vietnam War at Kent State University. In a deadly barrage of 67 shots, 4 students were killed and 9 wounded. It was the day America turned guns on its own children. Using the journalism skills he employed on his celebrated graphic novels My Friend Dahmer and Trashed, Backderf has conducted extensive interviews and research to explore how mistakes, political rancor, and paranoia built to a deadly crescendo on an American campus. Kent State: Four Dead in Ohio (Abrams ComicArts), to be published by the 50th anniversary of the tragedy, is a moving and troubling story about the bitter price of dissent — as relevant today as it was in 1970.

“Backderf delivers a provocative, heartbreaking account of the days leading up to the infamous tragedy of May 1970… His expertly crafted chronicle of this defining moment in U.S. history serves as a deeply moving elegy for the victims.” – Publishers Weekly, starred review

Derf Backderf is the bestselling, award-winning author of My Friend Dahmer and Trashed, and recipient of the prestigious Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for political cartooning. His weekly comic strip, The City, appeared in more than 100 newspapers for almost twenty-five years. He lives in Cleveland, Ohio.
