Quimby the Mouse based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I expected a contiguous storyline, as in the Jimmy Corrigan collection. There are also some Quimby 'episodes' from Big Book of Jokes II which weren't collected here, but I thought were some of the best of Quimby. However, reading Chris Ware's work is always a delight.
One of the most dense, demented and delirium- inducing books I have ever purchased. Don¿t sit down to read even a single page unless you have an hour to dedicate to the mind-numbing process of facing your own mortality presented in misleadingly approachable cartoon detail. Reading this book is like cleaning your own toilet with the meticulousness of an auto detailer. First you¿ll laugh, then you¿ll squirm and finally you¿ll breath a sigh of relief when you step back to reflect on the whole experience.
