"As one of today's most renowned cartoonists, Chris Ware is widely considered an artist of genius. Combining innovative comic book art, hand lettering, and graphic design, Ware's work is characterized by ceaseless experimentation with narrative and graphic forms." "Daniel Raeburn looks closely at Ware's career, work methods, and artistic innovations. Born in Omaha in 1967, Ware introduced the character Jimmy Corrigan in a full-page strip he began writing for the Chicago tabloid New City. Combining six years' worth of the strips, Ware created the novel named after Jimmy that spans an Irish-American family's life in Chicago from the Civil War to the present. For its experiments in graphic form - including pullout, three-dimensional inserts - and its non-chronological narrative, the novel earned numerous honors, among them the Guardian First Book Award, presented for the first time to a comic book."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)

el texto no es memorable. lo unico que recuerdo es que sonaba como texto de graduate student. lo que si me interesa es la nocion de ware de la tirilla como un edificio. eso explica por que los trabajos parecen estaticos. la idea sin embargo me intereso. es una manera de combinar unidad y transformacion. supongo que por eso tambien tiene algo parecido a algunas pinturas medievales. varios tiempos en un mismo espacio. como si estuvieran ocurriendo al mismo tiempo. por alguna razon tambien sigo pensando en la idea de espacios, tuneles, perforaciones en la unidad. esa idea de fisica cuantica creo que es.
