PopMatters on Acme no. 18

Pop Matters gives Chris Ware's Acme Novelty Library no. 18 a rather idolatrous review: "As usual, these penitent recollections are told through Ware’s epic, blueprint-like diagrams. With the minute, technical craft of his art, Ware is able to scientifically poeticize the flow of thought with an almost-Proustian sensibility and, at his best, is able to capture the most sentimentally sloppy of moments and emotions with the most precise, categorical of means."
