A masterpiece by Chris Ware
on 10 November 2016
A masterpiece by Chris Ware. One of the greatest ever graphic novels - a study of loneliness, isolation, emotional dislocation in a brilliant though simple-looking graphic style. This never rubs our face in it but allows much feeling for the central character, the flawed individual that he himself nevertheless is.
Jimmy Corrigan is a masterpiece that is found at the top of greatest ever graphic novels lists alternative in top place with Maus, Watchmen, Batman - The Dark Knight Returns, The Sandman series, Ghost World and the Bone series. The writing and presentation is that good.
