Josh Simmons & Sammy Harkham
Friday, June 12th
Beginning @ 7pm

Master of horror Josh Simmons is hitching up the four-door for a cross-country road trip this spring to celebrate the release of his newest graphic novel, Black River, the follow-up to 2012’s The Furry Trap. Joining him will be Mr. Sammy Harkham with his incredible new installment of Crickets. Two indie comics masterminds for the price of one!

“Black River is the skin-crawling story of a group of survivors traversing a post-apocalyptic landscape, with the worst of humanity constantly at their heels. With black-and-white precision, Josh Simmons strips his characters down to their most base desires and instincts, daring his readers to examine their own. Dark humor is juxtaposed with adept, exploitative pacing, and detailed line-work draws the reader further and further into Simmons’s sinister universe.

Award winning creator Sammy Harkham (Kramers Ergot, Poor Sailor, Everything Together) returns with another all new giant chapter of his acclaimed long form strip, Blood of the Virgin, which tracks the ins and outs of the hollywood exploitation movie scene in the early 1970s in all its bizarre, mundane, graphic, glory.” – Fantagraphics
