The bright side to these trying economic times is that every big purchase we make is a deeply considered one. Take the Sammy Harkham-started/David Kramer-inspired anthology Kramer's Ergot, which is now reaching its seventh installment. It's a full-grown human being-sized collection of artwork and comic strips from some of our favorite artists, including Chris Ware, Harkham, Frank Santoro and Matt Furie, whose page looks like he took all the characters from our seven-inch cover and had them meet on a beach. Besides featuring some pretty important artists, the book is big enough to act as a tent or lean-to under which we might live if things get more dire. Our only question: Can we get a free copy if we promise to cherish it forever? What about if we also use it as a makeshift kid's table next Thanksgiving?
