Always interesting to hear your thoughts on these graphic novels. Have you reviewed any of Chris Ware's works? A quick search seems to indicate no. Am I missing something? I would be curious to know your thoughts - his "Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth" is one of the saddest things I've ever read, and his "Rusty Brown" pushes the boundaries of how a graphic novel can tell a story. Anyway, thanks for writing!

I love Chris Ware. I've been reading short pieces, but you're right that I haven't finished a book of his in a long time. And I even got a copy of Rusty before it was released! I am ashamed.

Here's a little thing on Jimmy Corrigan I wrote back in 2008: https://thmazing.blogspot.com/2008/07/appreciating-comics-101.html

I've been wanting to reread it almost since I first read it but, as you say, it's one of the saddest things I've ever read.
