Down with OPP*: Mister Wonderful

** Yeah, You Know Me. 

It's sub-titled "A Love Story," but somehow Mister Wonderful still managed to depress the heck outta me. Such is the power of the one and only Daniel Clowes!

Mister Wonderful was originally serialized in the New York Times Magazine back in 2007-8, and it was such an exhilirating weekly ride, that I'm glad someone collected it into a nice little hardbound book, complete with extra bonus material.

If you didn't read the online strips a few years ago (I can't even imagine...), the "Mister Wonderful" in question is Marshall, an unemployed divorcé, who's been fixed up with Natalie, a woman with some romantic baggage of her own.

I don't wanna give away the ending for anyone who didn't read it on the NYT website (Really? You didn't?? Sorry, I just...), but somehow, the open-ended conclusion just left me feeling bummed out. I guess we're meant to feel hope for this budding couple, but c'mon... This is Dan Clowes we're talking about.

Mister Wonderful, and tons of other Clowes titles and accessories, are currently in stock at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110. See you there!

Mister Wonderful, Chapter 18
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under webcomicsMister WonderfulDaniel Clowes 28 Jan 2008 11:06 AM

Chapter 17 of Daniel Clowes' New York Times strip so masterfully built tension into such small space, and Chapter 18 is even more powerful and devastating. I'm actually sad this is ending in just a couple weeks, I don't think I've ever enjoyed a weekly comic more. We're pullin' for ya, Marshall.
