Acme Novelty Library Vol. 18 HC

Cartoonist Chris Ware abandons the engaging serialization of his "Rusty Brown" and instead focuses upon his more experimentally grim narrative, "Building Stories." Set in a Chicago apartment building more or less in the year 2000, the stories move from the straightforward to the complex, invading character's memories and personal ambitions with a text point size likely unreadable to human beings over the age of 45. Reformatted to accommodate this different material, readers will be pleased by the volume's vertical shape and tasteful design.
