    1 thought on “Kramers Ergot #7

    1. Huge and ambitous, but after reading it I started to wonder if it needed to be that big while some artists used the space well, some seemed to take their usual work and blow it up bigger. I'm also not sure how I feel about the limited number of pages - while Josh Simmon's story seems substantial, some others feel slight and disappear before you're done reading them. I think smaller dimensions - something like 11x17" - with triple the page count would've been ultimately more impressive and reward [...]

    2. This is big and hard to read. Big because each page is almost 2 feet tall, and over a foot wide. Hard to read both physically (because it's big), and because a lot of what's in it would be hard to read even if it were small. Yet I will persevereOkay, finally finished this. Overall it was okay - most of the content was on par with the previous volumes of KE, some worse some better. The places where a contributor really took advantage of the huge format (though rare) really seem to stand out, or a [...]

    3. A nice big book. I wish I could say that it is the best comic book of all time like it was being touted as, and seemed like it was going to be but seriously, on that front, it is a little disappointing.The peoples work that you would expect great things from do a decent job, and it is nice to see it big. But then there is a bunch of work that even at 'regular' size would make you want to puke and then it is huge in your face ughAnd I know this is just personal preference, so that's why I don't w [...]

    4. I don't honestly know how to rate this as a book. It's more an objet d'art, and a lovely one at that, but I don't think the contents live up to the promise it makes with its design and pedigree. I'm glad to have read it but very few pieces really made good use of the outsize pages. Apart from that, not many made a real impact on me as a reader, either (maybe Josh Simmons' because it was so fucking creepy). I liked Shary Boyle's story and not being familiar with her work, it was good to be introd [...]

    5. Saw this at APE this year. Looks amazing, but the $125 price tag kept me from buying it directly from Buenaventura press. Also went to a panel discussion at APE about the book that included Sammy Harkham, Dan Clowes, Chris Ware, Alvin Buenaventura, and several other cartoonists whose works are in the book and it seems like a really unique and exciting work. They did mention ($70+) orders for the book probably wouldn't be shipping out until the second week of December, so I guess I will be waiti [...]

    6. At the price of $125 and only 96 pages (I wouldn't have bought it if I'd bothered to read the description and known the page count.) There were some five star stories in here and the book's design was great, but the forgettable stories outnumbered the really good ones. The price vs the actual product was absolutely ridiculous.The last Kramer's I read was volume six, cost $35 and I would easilly give four stars.

    7. Wow. If you like art comics this is a tour de force. It's massive (around 2' by 3') and it was expensive, but it's fantastically beautiful. It has comics by most of the best experimental comic book artists around. I spent a week just looking at the pictures and another week reading - reading it slowly, to savor everything.Now that the recession is full force, I doubt we'll see anything like this for awhile, but I'm glad it came out, and I'm glad I bought it.

    8. Each artist in this massive comp take advantage of the format in really provocative ways. Too bad most of the subject matter is juvenile without much emotionally informative take-away. A few great pieces stand out make your local library invest in a copy of this, as it will run you over 100 bones to buy it.

    9. Like any compilation this is hit and miss but as a pure art object it is pretty impressive. Nice to see some of comics heavy hitters come out in the Kramer's Ergot fold for a change. Some of KE is a little too white-belt and Vice Magazine for my taste but I find it encouraging to see some younger American cartoonists developing.

    10. The huge format is wonderful and I am very glad they had this at my local library. I didn't like the grodie sexual pieces but I usually don't anyway and there were only 2 or 3 in this collection. There were some stunning pieces in this and most of the participants really used the space well.
