The Acme Novelty Datebook
Intended for mature audiences
Acclaimed cartoonist Chris Ware (Building Stories) reveals the outtakes of his genius in these intimate, imaginative, and whimsical sketches collected from the years during which he completed his award-winning graphic novel Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth. Acme Datebook Volume One is as much a companion volume to Jimmy Corrigan as a tremendous art collection from of one of America's most interesting and popular graphic artists. Chris Ware surprises the reader on every page with its spontaneity, its mordant humor, and its excellent draftsmanship.
