Whoops, forgot to post yesterday... the only thing we had scheduled to arrive in comic shops this week is a reoffer of Mome Vols. 7-10, so if you're missing any of those issues and your local shop hasn't had them for a while, now would be a good time to check back in with them!
Bennett's Beat of the Traps
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under MomeJonathan Bennett 8 Jan 2009 6:58 PM

MOME contributor Jonathan Bennett has a fantastic, classic Sunday-style comic strip called "Beat of the Traps" in the new Kramers Ergot. John is a fantastic cartoonist whose work exhibits the craftsmanship of a master jeweler, but also has an existential soul a la Glenn Ganges or King Cat that its quotidian trappings often belie. He's really good. It turns out he also completed an additional page for Kramers of B&W dailies leading up to the Sunday payoff that the editor, Sammy Harkham, mercilessly rejected from the book. I like to picture Sammy laughing, with a cigar, as he gave Bennett the news. Anyway, luckily for us, Bennett has rescued the page from oblivion and produced the handsome minicomic version pictured above. The only downside of this is it makes my job harder in putting together that MOME theme issue I'd been planning, KRAMERS REJECTS. But you should search it out nonetheless.
