Two Chris Ware-related books

Item Name and Description: Two books:

  • The US hardcover edition of his Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth.
  • Timothy McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern #13, which Ware guest-edited. This is a big anthology of comics, mostly new but with some historical pieces, plus a few articles on comics. Contributors include Lynda Barry, Chip Kidd, and too many others to list – see the Wikipedia page for the series for the full list.

These have both been read once and are in excellent condition. McSweeney’s has the jacket, which many cheap copies don’t; the jacket is actually part of the anthology since it unfolds to reveal two comics by Ware. Tucked in the jacket folds are two mini-comics, which are present.

Starting Bid: 20.00

Shipping: United States only (shipping this elsewhere would cost a small fortune)

She embarks on a journey of self-exploration that culminates in her transformation–a common occurrence in this world–into an attractive gay man. In the end, she must weigh the attractions of this existence against the good aspects of her actual life. A 1995 James Tiptree Award winner.
