New Chris Ware Comic in The New Yorker....




Chis Ware is a genius. I always liked his art, but I had never read any of the stories until my ex-boss; who is a HUGE fan, got me his "Jimmy Corrigan" book a couple of years ago for Christmas. I couldn't put it down! Ware has a way of making the mundane into the spectacular, and his simple, unassuming art style is the perfect underscore for the subject matter. If you've never read any of his stuff, I highly recommend that you do!

His new, four-page comic for the New Yorker is no exception - the art is excellent & the story sublime. I especially love the cover w/ the parents on Halloween night with their noses in their i-Phones!
