Here it is: the latest issue of The ACME Novelty Library. We feel safe in saying that: "Hey, it's new and it's by Chris Ware; do you really need to know anything else?" That said, we will go ahead to further urge its purchase by stating that Lint is yet another masterpiece by the ever astonishing Chris Ware, who reveals himself here as the true, and greatest, heir of the American realist traditions of the 20th century that emerged from the midwest, in both literarature and art. Lint provides its readers with a full life portrait of its titular protagonist as rich with personal detail and psychological insight as those found the novels of Sinclair Lewis, and visually distilled with the precision and exactitude of Charles Sheeler into a slim book as densely packed with signification as is humanly possible. Mr. Ware has been tirelessly proclaiming for twenty years now that comics is a language. He should know, as the greatest reward for learning this language are those works he has himself created. BONUS: Led Zeppelin will never sound quite the same again after reading this. Here's the first of what are sure to be many weighing-ins as to its significance.
