Chicago jam-comics group Trubble Club boasts an all-star line-up of amazing illustrators, collectively creating surreal, hilarious and somewhat disturbing comics.

I came across the Club via Laura Park, a talented Chicago-based illustrator who Flickrs her Moleskines, Comics and Doodles. The group also boasts longtime zine superstar Al Burian (warning- extremely barebones personal website), Lilli Carre, Ezra Claytan Daniels, Anya Davidson (frontswoman of Chicago band Coughs), Lucy Knisley, Rachel Niffennegger, Burnie McGovern, Onsmith, Aaron Renier, Grant Reynolds, Becca Taylor, Jeremy Tinder and Marco Torres.
A minicomic of their work is now available at Quimbys.

You mean Metafilter's own Laura Park.

Wow - from what I've seen, I'd say they're all shades of disturbingly hilarious surrealism. Thanks for this!

...oh my goodness! I guess I should probably preemptively apologize for this sort of slap-dash post- I wasn't able to find links for everyone involved, and Al Burian really deserves an FPP of his own, except his zines really have to be physically read. In any case, there's so much talent here it makes me gaze at my own claw-like hands and WEEP.

Don't miss the custom MetaFilter work.

Those are just fantatic. I've seen a few come up on in Laura's flickr feed, but didn't know they had consolidated them in one place. This kind of stuff really inspires me to try to step up my doodling into something more finished.
