Review:

"Clowe has explored the tedium and mystery of contemporary American life with more wit and insight than most novelists or filmmakers."

I wish every one of my favorite cartoonists would produce a version of this book: a handful of short stories, all distinct in style, yet all unified by the artist's singular sensibility. A master class in concision and characterization, with seemingly endless tectonic layers of implication.--Adrian Tomine (Killing and Dying, Shortcomings)

Synopsis:

Available now for the first time in paperback, CARICATURE is undoubtedly Clowe's finest work to date. Included is the title story, considered by many to be Clowes at his best, with its evocative depiction of a lonely fairground caricaturist attempting to reconcile his creative dreams with his less than creative reality. Also included are several full-colour shorts, including the only full-painted strip of Clowes' career MCMLXVI, as well as Green Eyeliner which in 1998 became the first non-prose work ever to appear in Esquire magazine's annual fiction issue.
