Published in 2008, the seventh issue of the prestigious alt-comics anthology Kramers Ergot measures a “modest” 16x21 inches and features an all-star lineup, with lavish full-color spreads by the likes of Matt Groening, Jaime Hernandez, Daniel Clowes, Kim Deitch, Chris Ware, Anders Nilsen, Seth, Kevin Huizenga, Adrian Tomine and dozens of others. The massive dimensions of the book, an homage to early 20th century broadsheet comics like Frank King’s Gasoline Alley or Windsor McCay’s Little Nemo, turn the reading experience into a visual feast. A decade from now or two decades from now when someone asks you what this decade was like in alternative comics, this is the book you’re going to hand them.
