    With all this graphic novel reading you’d be up to recently, have you chanced your arm with any Chris Ware? The last two Acme Novelty Libraries (#19 and #20) are worthy of laudation!

    You know, I haven’t–only because Nashville Public Library’s been weak on Ware. They only have a book some guy wrote about him. I’ve really liked what little I read.

    A couple more I’ve read and enjoyed recently are Charles Burns’ “X’ed Out” and Clowes “Caricature,” which is short stories.

    Do seek out. He perfects the Vonnegutian causation arrow to the degree that you can’t help but see his characters as sorry systems worthy of pity, striving towards dignity!

    X’ed Out was tasty. I especially like Burns’ fibrous liquid woodcut line and the lack of grey-scale. Caricature is great. I like the coming of age confessional ones that feel like sketches towards Ghost World. Good job!

    Yes, I liked Caricature as I read it, though now I can’t remember any but the title story. Let’s blame the fever.

    Where to begin with Ware? Jimmy Corrigan?
