Kramers Ergot is the premier comics anthology of the 21st century. Since its inception in 2000, it has revolutionised the medium, introducing new talents, solidifying aesthetics and standing as a state-of-the-medium book. It has always been a reflection of editor Sammy Harkham’s current interests in comics past and future. So it is in that spirit, with this new volume, he severs Kramers Ergot from many of the formal and stylistic elements with which it made its name. Volume 8 offers an aesthetic and physical shift in the series towards a more personal reading.
