Here’s an excerpt from my book about Chris Ware, my second. My first book about him is the third issue of The Imp, on the next page.


“An invaluable essay ... The only fault of Raeburn’s commentary is that there isn’t enough of it.”


“In just a handful of pages, Raeburn eloquently captures the essence of this important artist.”

Publisher’s Weekly

“[Ware’s] found an avid and highly intelligent interpreter … Raeburn seems to know just about everything it’s possible to know about Ware and his influences.”

The Washington Post

“Engrossing ... [Raeburn] shows great insight into Ware’s intentions and accomplishments, communicating his passion for the celebrated cartoonist’s oeuvre with verve and intelligence.”

The Montreal Gazette
