Cleverly appropriated old-fashioned animation imagery and advertising styles of the 1920s and 1930s are put to use in Quimby at the service of modern vignettes of angst and existentialism. As this cartoon silhouette of a mouse ignominiously suffers at every turn, the spaces between the panels create despair and a Beckett-like rhythm of hope deceived and deferred (but never quite extinguished), buoying Quimby from page to page. Like Ware's first book, Pantheon's best-selling and award-winning Jimmy Corrigan, Quimby is saturated with Ware's genius, including consistently amazing graphics, insanely perfectionist production values, cut-out-and-assemble paper projects, and the formal complexity of his narratives that have earned him the reputation as one of the most prodigious artists of his generation. Quimbycollects all the material from the out-of-print Acme Novelty Library #2 and #4, as well as a selection of previously uncollected strips and some new material.

"Ware is the most versatile and innovative artist the medium has ever known." – Dave Eggers, The New York Times Book Review

"It is almost too beautiful to share shelf space with other books." – Booklist

"Too beautiful to take anywhere." – Nick Hornby

"Chris Ware is a genius." – David Sedaris
