View Full Version : The Acme Novelty Library
13th October 2005, 09:07 AM
I love Chris Ware. "Jimmy Corrigan" is one of the greatest things ever drawn/written, and I fell in love with Rusty Brown the more I read of it. Ware promised a Rusty Brown collection but I had given up hope . . . has anyone picked up The Acme Novelty Library yet? It looks like it might be what I was waiting for. I think I'll stop by the Booksmith on my way home from work and see if it's in, because I've only just spent about $150 there in the past three days and they look like they could use some more money.

The lesson I've learned is: just because all the Europeans like Astrix, it doesn't necessarily mean they have perfect taste in comics.
I carry on my love of Chris Ware, alone.

Last I heard Ware is still working on Rusty Brown. Like any good cartoonist (Crumb, Clowes, Woodring, Burns) his stuff takes time.
