Marshall is a middle-aged divorcé, not especially attractive, and his blind date is already nearly an hour late. From this unpromising beginning, Daniel Clowes' "love story" stretches out before us with the radiant ambiguity of real-life situations. When Natalie finally does appear, she is so abjectly apologetic, winning, beautiful, and attentive that Marshall fights not to be swept off his very flat feet. As the evening extends into night and the pair head off for a party, the story once again drifts into complications, eventually leading us—and the couple to a conclusion still wavering in the air. Daniel Clowes' Mister Wonderful doubtless won its Eisner Award for being so unique and recognizable.
