"Acclaimed cartoonist Chris Ware reveals the outtakes of his genius in these intimate, imaginative, and whimsical sketches collected from the years during which he completed his award-winning graphic novel Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth (Pantheon). His novel not only won the Manchester Guardian First Novel prize in 2001 but it has sold over 100,000 copies. This book is as much a companion volume to Jimmy Corrigan one of the great crossover success stories as a tremendous art collection from of one of America s most interesting and popular graphic artist. Chris Ware has a passion for drawing that is surprisingly wide-ranging in style and subject. This book surprises the reader on every page with its sense of spontaneous vision. Architectural drawings from Chicago and interplanetary robot comics collide with cruelly doodled human figures and quietly troubling studies of the still life. A must for people with a passion for modern design and old-fashioned style."

Review:

"(Ware) Pushes The Form Of Comics Into Unexpected Formal And Emotional Territory." - The Chicago Tribune; "Ware's Use Of Words Is Sparing, And At Times 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. His Drawings, Somehow, Remain Delicate And Achingly Lyrical." - Dave Eggers, The New York Times Book Review

About the Author:

Jimmy Corrigan, Smartest Kid on Earth was the controversial winner of the Manchester Guardian's 2001 prize for Best First Novel. He is beloved by the comics world - and by the likes of Dave Eggers and Zadie Smith - however, Mr. Ware is an extraordinarily shy man. He lives in Chicago with his wife Marnie.
