Pulp Fictions: Kramers Ergot 7 and The Ganzfeld 7


Although many excellent comics anthologies currently crave your eyeballs, Sammy Harkham’s Kramers Ergot (Buenaventura Press) and Dan Nadel’s The Ganzfeld (Picture Box) occupy a highly weird and ambitious shelf unto themselves. Coincidentally, each title has a new landmark issue available for your reading enjoyment. The Ganzfeld 7 marks the end of the line for co-editor and publisher Nadel, who wants to explore “other formats and ideas.” Harkham, meanwhile, has worried publicly that the large-format Kramers Ergot 7 could bankrupt his company if it doesn’t sell.
