I have been a Chris Ware addict since Jimmy Corrigan, so my opinion is obviously biaised. I am NOT bipolar nor depressed, I don't feel at all like committing suicide, I enjoy life in general and yet, despite the above mentionned flaws inherent to my inner optimism, I really enjoyed this Scenes of Early Childhood, however sad they might be, however sad they make you feel after closing the last page. But hey, at school, I was the last one to be picked when a football team had to be set up in the playground, so I understand the feeling in this book... Just don't let it bring you down, though.
PS: What makes me really feel like having a nervous breakdown is the excrutiatingly high price this book is sold at :-(

HASH(0x8e8405ac) étoiles sur 5 I'd give it six stars but.... 23 septembre 2005
Par J. A. Goodman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Even if you don't read this book you will get a chill just looking at it, as it is truly a beautiful "objet de art" and not just a collection of comics. The design of each page is a work of art in and of itself and I get a shiver just beholding each one. While ANL claims it is a report to "shareholders" it is really a collection of single page "jokes" that sometimes form a sustained narrative....It's very unlike Ware's Jimmy Corrigan book, as it can be read in no particular order and still make a load of sense. There are also some nice gimmicks included like toys you can build, mini-comics you can "bind", a glow in the dark map of the stars, a wrap-around band that contains a comic, and even the world's smallest comic included along the edge of the book. The colors, are bright, bold and rainbow like, the stories are all over the spectrum from hilarious to cringe inducing pathos, the actual Acme history is quite entertaining, and then there are the ad parodies.....You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wish they were real....basically ANL provides hours of entertainment for the price of a nice dinner, especially if ordered from Amazon.....I can hardly wait for Ware's next book which I hear is coming out in the next couple of months. Move this book to the top of your buying list....

HASH(0x8e840600) étoiles sur 5 Chris Ware: The Tarkovsky of Comic-Makers 16 décembre 2006
Par Nicholas R. Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Getting this book in the mail after having immensley enjoyed Jimmy Corrigan was comparable to my best xmas present-opening experiences as a kid - a feeling I assumed would not occur again, now that I'm a dried-up adult. I got it alongside acme novelty library 16 + 17, which I ordered whilst drunk and deeply regretted until recieving them. Wow! I simply cannot beleive something this amazing exists. I suggest reading 16 + 17 first, as there are secrets about Rusty Brown's fate that you may want to save until after you've got yourself into the 'Rusty-Brown-as-a-child' storyline. A large portion of this book involves middle-aged rusty, so... Well, its up to you. I can see the merit of reading it in the reverse order as well. Either way, this book is just utterly amazing - I haven't enjoyed any comics remotely this much, since reading Twisted Tales in my youth. I still have the final 3 pages left, and am quite excited! (Other reviewers say its the best ending ever, so I'm going to save it...

You are a disgrace to humanity if you pass this up.

HASH(0x8e840a38) étoiles sur 5 Opulent tragedy! 27 septembre 2005
Par W. Creswell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Chris Ware's tragicomic characters are experiencing the dramas of life that most people would rather not admit even exist. Divorce, hate, ambivolence, child abandonment (a disturbing recurrence in Ware's work.), mental cruelty, substance abuse, murder, shame, self-loathing, etc. This is coupled with very dark tounge-in-cheek humor of the kind that makes you wonder if you should really be laughing or not. (You should.) Above it all is Ware's astounding design work. Nobody but NOBODY can create a world as fine and obsessively detailed as Chris Ware. Endless throwbacks to Victorian book design, Advertisments from early 20th century to comic book styles of the 50s. He has created a unique enviroment that is as dazzlingly brilliant to look at, as it is uneasy to read. I've never been dissapointed by Ware's work and this is no exception. This does collect previously released work from his Acme Novelty Library so if you already own all of those issues this may not be for you. However it is a terriffic collection and a must for fans, modern comic enthusiasts or people just interested in fantastic book design.

Par S. Sullivan - Publié sur Amazon.com

Chris Ware's recent output of work is no doubt his most impressive. Sadly this won't be recognized for a few years. It won't be until these chunks of story that comprise the last few Acme Novelty installments are collected and released in their full form that it will be clear what he is up to. The two books on the horizon are "Building Stories" (a piece of which makes up Acme Novelty Library #18) and "Rusty Brown" which has had now three releases, numbers 16, 17 and now 19.
Rusty Brown himself makes nary an appearance in this volume as the focus is placed instead on Rusty Brown's father, minor science fiction writer W.K. Brown. The work is segmented into two halves, the first being an illustration of one of Brown's science fiction stories, a gripping piece called "The Seeing Eye-Dogs of Mars". There is something very satisfying about seeing Ware tackle science fiction. His art style isn't the most obvious for the genre but the two compliment each other surprisingly well. The novel then progresses into more traditional territory for Ware (which is not to say it isn't emotionally effecting, well observed, and masterfully composed, because it is) and it has the advantage of reflecting back on the opening section. As usual with Ware the book itself is beautifully assembled. Chris Ware is growing leaps and bounds as an artist because he has not lost anything that made his early work special yet has increased his scope as a writer and continues to invent with the form. With each release Ware's status as the best living cartoonist becomes more and more certain while his relative obscurity (considering the emotional power and formal importance of his work) becomes more and more disconcerting. At the very least, this new volume raises the bar for what we can expect from the complete "Rusty Brown."

HASH(0x8e840db0) étoiles sur 5 Like no other... 23 mars 2006
Par Charles - Publié sur Amazon.com

Some comics might make you laugh till you cry. This one works the other way. You'll think and get depressed until you find a place to smile in. Exquisitely produced, it's like owning a piece of custom art on your bookshelf (not that it will fit) or coffee table. Astounding, perfect, unique: read it and fill in your own superlative.
