Pantheon Books
$39.95 (Hardcover)

Eclectic is the best word to describe Chris Ware’s new collection of The Acme Novelty Library.
Containing plenty of familiar faces for fans, like Quimby The Mouse, Rusty Brown and Tales Of Tomorrow, this over-sized compendium displays an impressive array of Ware’s comic strips.
From the old West to outer space to ad spoofs and the world’s smallest comic strip, Ware deftly explores the history of comics in an enjoyable romp.
