Wimbledon Green: The Greatest Comic Book Collector in the World
by Seth, a review from Powells.com by Chris Bolton.
"In his introduction, 'The Origin of Wimbledon Green,' the cartoonist Seth notes that this story began as a series of exercises in his sketchbook:
I had been particularly interested in a certain kind of storytelling I had noticed several other cartoonists working with ? specifically Dan Clowes, Chris Ware, and David Heatley. It's an approach wherein you tell a longer story through a series of shorter, unconnected comic strips. Cumulatively they add up to a bigger picture.
What separates Wimbeldon Green from the work of the aforementioned artists is its humor. Unlike Ware and Clowes, whose comics are generally without laughter (and in the rare instance that there is laughter, it tends to leave a bitter or sorrowful taste), Seth's graphic novel is generously ladled with humor. Much of it will be easily recognizable to those poor souls who have spent a good portion of their lives poring over the back-issue bins in comic book shops." Read the entire Powells.com review.
