The incomparable Chris Ware

Category: Info Posted: June 22nd, 2016

Thought I’d write a few lines about this American, Chicago- based cartoonist who blows my mind with his style and melancholy subject matter (undercut with a hilarious, bitter and dark humour)… the incomparable Chris Ware. Of my generation, Chris is regarded by many in the field as one of the best currently producing work and I wholeheartedly agree. His meticulous style and individual way of laying out panels that branch with many different stories and images harps back to the early 20th century comics and design, revealing the influences of  Winsor McCay and Frank King. If you haven’t seen or read his work get your hands on his beautifully printed books and enjoy!
