Jimmy Corrigan

The Smartest Kid on Earth




The most ambitious, beautiful, moving 'comic book' ever produced: an astonishing tour de force that won the Guardian First Book Award 2001

For five years Chris Ware has been drawing amazingly innovative 'comic strips' about a character called Jimmy Corrigan - a boy with the face of a disappointed old man. Jimmy Corrigan has rightly been hailed as the greatest comic/graphic novel ever to be published and is now available for the first time in paperback.
