Product Description

Review

Ware's genius lies in the detail...beautifully drawn. (Esquire Magazine)

Belongs as much to an art gallery as to a bookshelf. Produced with the kind of attention, love, care and copiousness of detail that one finds in a Rennaissance masterpiece, it is a sort of cartoon miscellany. (Neel Mukherjee The Times 2005-12-03)

Book Description

The genius behind Jimmy Corrigan is back in a big way - literally - with a stunning tabloid-sized collection of single-page cartoons. (2005-02-17)

From the Publisher

The genius behind Jimmy Corrigan ('arguably the greatest achievement of the form, ever' - Dave Eggers, New York Times) is back in a big way - literally - with a stunning tabloid-sized collection of single-page cartoons.
