Sammy Harkham: Everything Together

Collected Stories


Sammy Harkham: Everything TogetherSammy Harkham is one of the most influential cartoonists and comics editors of his generation. After a decade of work and groundbreaking anthologies, Everything Together collects his short-story comics, which condense vast amounts of emotion and information into nuanced cartoon narratives. Harkham’s classic style is both articulate and expedient. At the center of the book are two vastly different tales: “Poor Sailor,” a sea-faring myth of a man gone to find wealth for his love; and “Somersaulting,” a kind of fever dream of teenagers in love, wiling away the summer. Alongside these stories are shorter comic strips tackling everything from Napoleon as a tortured artist to touching examinations of Jewish mysticism and life in a shtetl, to satires on contemporary university life. Throughout these tales, Harkham maintains a light touch and emotive wit. The works in this book confirm his place among the best storytellers of his generation.
Sammy Harkham was born in Los Angeles in 1980, moving to Sydney, Australia, at the age of 14. He soon started making his own comics and a zine, Kramers Ergot, which has evolved into one of the most influential comics anthologies published today. His comic strip Poor Sailor, originally published in Kramers Ergot 4, was subsequently included in Best American Nonrequired Reading of 2004 and has been published in French, Korean and Italian. Kramers Ergot has been on numerous “best of the year” lists including the LA Weekly, Time, The New York Times, Dazed and Confused, The Comics Journal and Publishers Weekly. In 2006 Harkham started the ongoing comic series, Crickets, and edited The Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror, and most recently the eighth volume of Kramers Ergot. A partner in both the renowned bookstore Family, and the movie theater, Cinefamily, Harkham lives in Los Angeles with his wife and three children.

'Sammy Harkham: Everything Together' Wins the L.A. Times Book Prize for Graphic Novels

Sammy Harkham’s Everything Together: Collected Stories (PictureBox) has been awarded the L.A. Times Book Prize for Graphic Novels , beating out Alison Bechdel’s Are You My Mother? A Comic Drama (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), Chris Ware’s Building Stories (Pantheon), Spain Rodriquez’s Cruisin’ With the Hound: the Life and Times of Fred Toote (Fantagraphics) and Leela Corman’s Unterzakhn (Shocken). In an October, 2012 review, PW called Everything Together "a stunning collection," and said of the story Poor Sailor, based on de Maupassant and featured here, "Between the blood-crazed monsters and blue loneliness, it’s a curiously effective little masterpiece of mood. There are few graphic artists who can combine the tragic and the comic with Harkham’s smashing accuracy."
