it was amazing
Read in January, 2006

Oh yes. Get this book. It's crazy. It's so minutely crafted you can just spend hours and hours looking at Chris Ware's intricate imagination (which he makes fun of) and non-linear narrative style. The story, layered like lasagna, is about Jimmy Corrigan's life, imagined and real. It's a loser's life, mired in paranoia and abyssal self esteem. But he makes a decision to meet his estranged dad, and it takes him on the adventure of a lifetime. A heartbreaking journey.
