Having devoted himself to assembling the massively influential series of anthologies, Kramers Ergot, Sammy Harkham now at last steps into the spotlight himself in this collection devoted solely to his own work. Published by PictureBox, Everything Together lives up to its title, collecting a decade's worth of Harkham's concentrated comics narratives. Opening with his minimalist meditations on personal perspective, "Napoleon" and "Elisha", the work ranges from his most sustained pieces, the epic "Poor Sailor", "Somersaulting," the upside-down-under memoir of Australian adolescence, and "Lubavitch, Ukraine, 1876", to his short, comics-insider pieces "Clowes & Huizenga", "Free Comics", "White River Junction", and "Frank S. Santoro, Sr." before closing with a pitch perfect "The New Yorker Story." 120 pages in all, printed in (mostly) muted duo-tone, black & white and full color on the ideal off-white that looks and feels like high-grade newsprint, providing full comic book frisson.
