UBC #18 - Mcsweeney's #13 (The Comics Issue) 2004 HC
Chris Ware ed.
Mcsweeney's 2004 Hardcover
For any serious comics/alternative illustration collector, this book is an absolute must. This is as close to a historical document as a modern trendy publisher can get. This beast has everyone, R. Crumb, Dan Clowes, Jim Woodring, Ivan Brunetti, David Collier, Adrian Tomine, Joe Sacco, Chester & Jeffrey Brown... I could go on but why spoil the surprise. There's a few modern classics as well as a few rare unpublished works; some in color and some accompanied by an essay penned by some pretty important writers. The only work of art I can accurately compare it to is Peter Wolf's intro to the live version of Musta Got Lost. And at the price we're offering, I hereby use my legal authority to declare this book a steal.
please call or email to hold or purchase. only one copy, so its first come first serve. please note that we will only keep books on hold at the store for three days (including weekends).
