Chris Ware animates!


Yay! One of my favorite artists from the comics world has started animating! You probably know Chris Ware from such works as The Acme Novelty Library, Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth, or Quimby the Mouse (one of my personal favorite storylines). Now he’s taken his signature storytelling style into the moving picture box for the TV adaptation of “This American Life”, with predictably excellent results. I can’t think of a better match between form and content.
