Good news everyone! Our good friend Sammy Harkham is bringing the tour for the release of the brand new KRAMERS ERGOT 9 to Toronto on Tuesday, June 14th! We’ve been fortunate to work on a number of great Kramers events with Sammy over the years, including volume 4, volume 6, and volume 7, not to mention lots of great visits to Toronto for TCAF.

The confirmed list of participants at this evening’s event is:

Michael DeForge
Sammy Harkham
Kevin Huizenga
Patrick Kyle
John Pham

That’s an incredible line-up! But a bunch of great cartoonists and friends will also be in attendance, as the make-up of the Kramers Ergot anthologies spans an incredible array of cartoonists and visual artists. It’s basically The Place To Be tonight.

The utterly gorgeous Kramers Ergot 9 is now available at The Beguiling (and will be available at the event tonight!). It is so much nicer than any sort of digital photo can capture, come see it in person a.s.a.p.!

Once he realizes what he’s capable of, Sid sets out to pursue his own secret agenda, counter to the group’s objectives. But he doesn’t have much time—the longer the spider is inside him, the more loyal he becomes to The Weavers…
