I haven’t read much Chris Ware since his graphic novel Jimmy Corrigan the Smartest Kid on Earth came out. His work is brilliant but downbeat and a bit too similar in tone. Perhaps I felt that since I had read one Chris Ware, I had read them all.
But I couldn’t resist his new collection, Building Stories which comes boxed as a board game, weighs seven pounds, and has 14 bits and pieces tucked inside. It came in the mail today! Do I read it all night or watch the Biden Ryan debate?
