    One thought on “The Acme Novelty Library #17

    1. Peter on said:

      Ware redeems himself from adding high concentrations of sap in this installment through the inclusion of the 'Branford the best bee in world' cartoon at the end, wherein his penchant for the tragically pitiful manifests in a truly hilarious strip.

    2. Paul on said:

      The second part of the introduction to Chris Ware's ongoing "Rusty Brown" novel. Everything that I said about the first part (issue #16) still holds true. Ware carefully sets up his characters through the prism of one nerdy kid's first day at a new school in Nebraska. It's tightly constrained portrait, the launching ground for the much more ambitious narrative to come (a single panel on the endpapers--a peek at characters in the present--hints at the scale Ware intends to cover with his story).I [...]

    3. Alyssa on said:

      Okay, so if I was to say I was just like Rusty as a kid, that would just sound shallow or something, I guess. But these graphic novels really made me feel like they were written for me and me alone. Maybe that's how everyone feels and that's why they're so good, but I used to retreat inside my imagination too. No, I never fantasized about Supergirl or drew awesome superhero pictures, but still- I won't tell you what my fantasies were, just believe that I can relate.I can't relate to the other ch [...]

    4. Jamie Felton on said:

      I just finished this the other night. It took me maybe a half an hour to read, but I really fell in love (again) with Chris Ware's artwork. His stories are incredibly sad, but they tap into some really intense feelings human beings can have. This particular work is a continuation (I think, as it is the only other thing I have read by him besides Jimmy Corrigan) of the story of Rusty, an incredibly awkward child in grade school. He is obviously disliked by everyone because he is "weird". He has a [...]

    5. Jeff on said:

      A really beautiful book, both in terms of Ware's beautiful drawings and in terms of the actual book itself - the front cover is an etched representation of images familiar from any American childhood in the late twentieth century. The book almost has the physical feel of a school library volume from that era, and the story lives up to that unusual starting point. As always, Ware is a master at weaving a tale that is simultaneously melancholy, beautiful, and astonishingly honest. It's hard to say [...]

    6. Earline on said:

      Bees are cute, but they're no Quimby.After reading the intro I'm afraid that Chris Ware might be reading this review late at nightSo if that is the case, I would just like to tell you Mr Ware, that you sir are a genius times a horribly disturbing genius, but a genius nonetheless, and for that I admire you shamelessly.

    7. Nancy on said:

      I do enjoy that boxy layout that keeps me gently tethered to the mood and story, and only wish the story was something beyond school traumas and weird/mean teachers.Favorite page: Mr. Ware posing for his art students and urging them to "get messy." The bee thing: alas, too small, and too much an unclear dabble of fantasy and documentary.

    8. Mary on said:

      I don't understand people who complain that Ware is too bleak and his stories are too slow. The glacial pace of this and the next in the series allows him to tenderly, gingerly build a tiny little everyday universe full of tragedy, slow-rolling humor, and tenuous hope.

    9. Liz on said:

      A crack addict says, "I will suck d*ck for a rock," and I say I would do the same for the next edition of the Acme Novelty Library. Please, Mr. Ware, give me my next fix! I'm dying!!

    10. Liam on said:

      Unstoppably good. Absorbingly good. Just, good, and I find it hard to say why. People say this is really bleak or depressing, but if you have an absurd sense of humour, I just find it honest and often laughable.

    11. Oliver Bateman on said:

      The characterizations are excellent, but without a dramatic event at its center this installment of the ongoing Rusty Brown storyline seems aimless and meandering. I'm sure things will fit together much better when the pieces of this magnum opus are finally collected in a single edition.

    12. Edmund Davis-Quinn on said:

      Another brilliant, bizarre, unique and strange Chris Ware book.Ware is definitely one of the unique voices in graphic novels. I would love to see him do a longer form book. #20 is the best of his I have read so far.

    13. Jessica on said:

      Yet another of Chris Ware's densely layered and beautifully designed and meticulously rendered works of despair, longing, and the nagging feeling that everyone hates you, even the ones who love you. Now I have to go find 1-16 and read them in order.

    14. Damon on said:

      Eh. Same stuff again. I felt like I should go back and read the volumes I'd skipped, but so far I'm not impressed

    15. Russell Grant on said:

      Rusty Brown settles into its story in a pleasing way, but the real winner here is BRANFORD THE BEST BEE IN THE WORLD.
