The dramatic short stories included in this softcover edition of Caricature have drawn comparisons to Nabokov for their complex naturalism and sense of humor. Anchored by the title story, considered the first apotheosis of Clowes' seminal Eightball underground comic book series, Caricature also includes eight other stories, including "Green Eyeliner," a six-page full-color short story originally published in Esquire as the first work of comics to be featured in the magazine's fiction issue (and commissioned by then-editor Dave Eggers). Also included are: a rare fully-painted short, "MCMLXVI," the full-color "Gold Mommy," "Gynecology," "Immortal, Invisible," "Blue Italian Shit," "Like a Weed, Joe," "Black Satin," an all-new cover, and more.

Download an EXCLUSIVE 13-page PDF excerpt (2.3 MB) with the stories "Blue Italian Shit" and "Green Eyeliner."

"[Clowes's] artwork — deftly accurate, stylistically mercurial, with a mastery of expression — is so rewarding, and his stories, soul searching as they often are, are seldom over-serious." – Dave Eggers

"All of Clowes's gifts as a storyteller are evident here, from his ability to suggest a sad, beautiful world in a single panel to his ability to explore the mysteries of childhood without resorting to cliches or sentimentality.... It's worth every penny." – Nathan Rabin, The A.V. Club
