Book of the week (month, year, etc.)



I keep thinking Chris Ware is going to burn out and quit everything, but this one man factory keeps pumping out hits. Acme Novelty Library 19 is the latest of the Rusty Brown saga and it's a doozie. An emotional journey to outer space and back, without a lot of down time.



We once had a customer bring back an Acme Novelty issue on the grounds that it was too sad (that was a one-time deal- don't get any ideas). Anyway, this one's sadder, so don't buy it unless you want to cry. But you'll be so happy to cry. So much invention in here. I don't even know if you can call it a graphic novel anymore, it's a hybrid, and it's amazing. Just read it.
