About the Author

CHRIS WARE is widely acknowledged as the most gifted and beloved cartoonist of his generation by both his mother and seven-year-old daughter. Building Stories, released in 2012, received 4 Eisner Awards, including Best Graphic Album, in 2013. His Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth won the Guardian First Book Award and was listed as one of the "100 Best Books of the Decade" by The Times (London) in 2009. An irregular contributor to This American Life and The New Yorker (where some of the pages of this book first appeared) his original drawings have been exhibited in the Whitney Biennial, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and in piles behind his work table in Oak Park, Illinois.

What People are Saying About This

Dave Eggers

Ware's use of words is sparing, and at time maudlin. But the real joy is his art. It's stunning. In terms of attention to detail, graceful use of color, and overall design. Ware has no peer. And while each panel is relentlessly polished-never an errant line or lazily rendered image-his drawings, somehow, remain delicate and achingly lyrical.

Mother Jones

Ware's work is among the very best graphic, comic, illustrative, and fine artwork being produced in the world right now.

Art Spiegelman

It's uncanny that someone so young would have such an apparent recollection of the history of comics, and the talent to expand upon it.
