    • The Grand Archon of Cringe ComicsThe word 'genius' gets thrown around a lot these days That is all.BUT:Maybe it isn't all.Chris Ware is the Dirk Diggler of Foreheads :(WARNING: The photo is un-fucked-with. However (view spoiler)[but any slight errors regarding Ware family history are simply a by-product attempting to reconcile scant documentation with anecdotal evidence, adapting it into a linear narrative, realizing that's way too much work for a review I'm not getting paid for, forgetting what [...]

    • Enjoyable for fans of Chris Ware, but not the place for non-fans to start.

    • In short: Even diehard fans could skip this, this is more for collectors.I am not proud of giving a 2* rating to my favorite living author. He continues to outdo himself—marriage and childbirth have somehow substantially elevated the ambition and enjoyability of his works. He has an innovative way of using symbols and page layouts to play with how time passes in the narrative, such that memories and daydreams can be followed in parallel to plot events. Like how Woolf, Gaddis and Wallace reinve [...]

    • +++ There's something awesome about Chris Ware's graphic style. I see De Stijl and Joost Swarte and Herge's Tintin series, but cleaner and even more radical. Who else would divide a panel into 256 squares, then proceed to group them and form curious image saccades? Who would build panels out of 6x8-square grids, only to make a central 2x4 figures and show their entire lives in vignettes covering the remainder?++/-- This is an auto-biography of one of the most self-effacing authors in the busines [...]

    • Those people who gave this book only 4 stars, I am truly baffled as to what could ever make you so happy as to give a book 5 stars? Is there a better autobiography than this? This book has tiny books in it! What more do you want??!!5 star book, will read again.

    • Massive, beautiful flood of Chris Ware's incomparable talent for interweaving words and pictures. I've been a reader since his Daily Texan days but there were plenty of things here that I had never seen before. Essential graphic art and autobiography.

    • Portrait of the Artist as an Exercise in Self DoubtI ❤️ Chris Ware’s work, including Chris Ware’s personal reflections on Chris Ware’s work. I guess this isn’t really so much a review as a statement of fawning admiration.

    • You have to check out the hillarious hate love review of this book on by Zadie Smith

    • A beautiful and awe inspiring collection with lots of surprises. And as a fan it was wonderful to see bits and pieces of the enormous amount of work that goes into all of Chris Ware’s art.

    • One of the most beautiful books ever made!!! Make sure to get your magnifying glass ready cause the print can get really small.

    • There's no finishing this book: it contains multitudes! What a smorgasbord of Chris Ware!

    • Fascinating and ambitious and . a physically huge book.

    • More a retrospective/ scrapbook of Ware’s life’s work than a memoir, which I was mistakenly expecting. There’s nothing like seeing his 60-panel cartoons on a 16”x24” page, though.
