let's talk about comics
this will be about chris ware.
why him? cause he's at least one of the best.
how often do u read comic book which makes u cry?
i advertise JIMMY CORRIGAN as the best comics i've ever red since i'd red it. and i'm going to do it now. read it!
for me it's a must.
chris ware was discovered by art spiegelman and worked with him in RAW.
his most notable works are 'ACME Novelty Library' (1993-present) and 'JIMMY CORRIGAN the smartest kid on earth' (2000). you can also download and read his 'building stories' made for the NY Times FUNNY PAGES but read ware's introduction 1st.
he also designs paper toys to be cut and assemble. take a look at the gallery of toys designed by chris ware or even print and assemble your own toy!
p.s. one more thing, he's a musician and plays banjo in his ragtime band as well as writes periodical about ragtime called 'the ragtime ephemeralist'.
p.s.2.there is an unofficial directory of the works of Chris Ware, good bibliography, but u can also find quite a lot of his work in google graphic browser
p.s.3. all art by chris ware, all rights are his as well as the glory.
p.s.4. if u want to buy me a gift - jimmi would be a perfect shot!
