Chicago: My Fav Thing is Monsters at Quimby’s

March 4, 2017 @ 7:00 pm CST

Emil Ferris Debuts Her Graphic Novel My Favorite Thing is Monsters

My Favorite Thing is Monsters by Emil Ferris (Fantagraphics Books) is a murder mystery, a
family drama, a sweeping historical epic, and a psychological thriller about monsters, real and
imagined, within and without. Set against the tumultuous political backdrop of late ’60s Chicago,
the precocious Karen Reyes tries to solve the murder of her beautiful and enigmatic upstairs
neighbor, Anka Silverberg, a holocaust survivor, while we get to watch the interconnected and
fascinating stories of those around her unfold. My Favorite Thing Is Monsters is a revelatory
work of striking originality and will undoubtedly be greeted as the debut graphic novel of the
year.
“Absolutely astonishing” – Chris Ware, Building Stories
“No one has ever made a comic like Emil Ferris …it threatens
not merely to exceed established standards of excellence, but
to set new ones.” — Sam Thielman, The Guardian
