Chris Ware’s award-winning comic Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth is nothing short of fucking brilliant. It’s a minimalist character study spread over three generations wrapped in a subtle history of Chicago, with effects unique to the comic book form. It’s terrificly sad and beautifully drawn, with hypercomplex layouts that are well worth staring at for extended periods of time. Don’t miss this.
