The Sydney Morning Herald Calls THE ACME COMIC NOVELTY LIBRARY Genius

“Books that changed me: Dav Pilkey” / The Sydney Morning Herald / Dav Pilkey / May 11, 2014

I don't know if it's possible to talk about Chris Ware without using the word ''genius''. This series of graphic art books seems as if it was designed to not be popular or collectable. . None of the books are the same shape or size. And although there are some recurring characters, there doesn't seem to be any theme that ties the series together (unless you count misanthropy). Aside from all that, however, each volume celebrates the darkness, surrealism, dullness, and despair that make up the human experience. Everything is beautifully illustrated, and most of it is hilarious.
