Vote Quimby


I have gone on the record to say that I don't "get" Chris Ware; one time somebody gave me a copy of Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid On Earth for my birthday, and instead of sending a thank you note I defriended him from Facebook.

But! I'm nothing if not open-minded so I picked up a copy of Ware's own bootleg Mickey Quimby the Mouse, and let me tell you friends, it rules.

This is my new Twitter avatar:
