This weekend, the New York Times Magazine introduces "The Funny Pages," and, given his stature, it's no surprise that the Reader's Chris Ware will be contributing. He'll do a strip called "Building Stories," which will run for 26 installments; part one [PDF] is printed today. To introduce the serial, the Times offers an audio interview [mp3] with the congenial Ware, who makes clear he doesn't live in Chicago: he's in Oak Park, goshdarnit.
