Published: 22 May 2003
Format: Trade Paperback
Genre: Graphic novels
Jimmy Corrigan has rightly been hailed as the greatest comic/graphic novel ever to be published. It won the Guardian First Book Award 2001, the first graphic novel to win a major British literary prize. It is now available for the first time in paperback.
Jimmy Corrigan is certainly the greatest thing in strip cartoons since Krazy Kat and Little Nemo.
Ware is the most versatile and innovative artist the medium has known - arguably the greatest achievement of the form ever.
Dave Eggers, New York Times Book Review
This new book seems to be another milestone in the demonstration of what comics can be.
Chris Ware has produced a book as beautiful as any published this year, but also one which challenges us to think again about what literature is and where it is going.
Claire Armitstead, Guardian
Perhaps best read in a single sitting, Jimmy Corrigan is perceptive, poetic, and sometimes profound, generously rewarding the absorption it requires.
Jimmy Corrigan is a dazzlingly handsome book with every detail lovingly attended to. The book is demanding, disturbing, funny and exciting. Oh yes, and essential.
