Those who made it through my lengthy comics post below may be interested in this newspaper article on the multi-talented Chris Ware, whose retro-y, design-forward comics are some of the best being done now. The comics-criticism zine The Imp did an issue about Ware; I think it’s an important read for anyone who, not content to just be awed by Ware’s craftsmanship, wants to think about his narratives in a more abstract way. Ware does good stuff. Check him out. (Times link stolen from Dan Hartung’s Lake Effect.)
