Nilsen at Quimby's TONIGHT!

Anders Nilsen artwork

Chicagoans! You've got 2 hours to hie ye'self down to Quimby's to see a reading by Anders Nilsen at 7 PM. Sez Anders on his blog, "I'll be showing a sort of preview of the forthcoming Monologues for Calculating the Density of Black Holes (Monologues II-Fantagraphics Books, due out in February) as well as a video-ized version of the strip Event, which first appeared in Mome, back in 2005, and was originally conceived as a video, not a comic strip. Which explains why it doesn't really look like one. Joe Meno and Arthur Nersesian are also reading."

Castle Waiting Vol. II #12 by Linda Medley

Castle Waiting Vol. II #12
By Linda Medley

This is the long-awaited special all-bowling issue, as Henry, Dayne, Chess, Tolly, Peace and Simon wage an all-out ninepin war... and it turns out one of them has heretofore unsuspected bowling skills! Like all good sports competitions it's a high-stakes battle to the very last frame. Meanwhile, back in the kitchen, Dinah and Jain pull out more and more dresses from the bottomless trunk and use a not-terribly-resistant Rackham to model them. All this, plus conjectures about what the heck's going on with the mysterious, elusive, and somewhat sinister Dr. Fell.

24-page black & white 6.75" x 10.25" comic book • $3.95
