Harkham’s Crickets Cancelled

Sammy Harkham reveals on the Family blog that his comic book series Crickets “has been cancelled due to changes made by the major comics distributor that effectively made it impossible to continue in the comic book format.” In the announcement Harkham links to Tom Spurgeon’s reporting about Diamond Comic Distributors‘ recent increase in minimum order threshholds.

Drawn and Quarterly published the first two issues of Harkham’s series. Harkham indicates that the projected third issue “will come out in some [DIY] form in the next couple months…after that, I dont know exactly.” Harkham is also the editor of the Kramers Ergot anthology series, published by Buenaventura Press.
