Overview

The dramatic short stories included in Caricature have drawn comparisons to Nabokov for their complex naturalism and sense of humor. Anchored by the title story, considered the first apotheosis of Clowes’ seminal Eightball underground comic book series, Caricature also includes eight other stories, including Green Eyeliner, a six-page full-color short story originally published in Esquire as the first work of comics to be featured in the magazine’s fiction issue (and commissioned by then-editor Dave Eggers). Also included are: a rare fully-painted short, MCMLXVI, the full-color Gold Mommy, Glue Destiny, Gynecology, Immortal, Invisible, Blue Italian Shit, Like a Weed, Joe, Black Satin, an all-new cover, and more.

Reviews
I wish every one of my favorite cartoonists would produce a version of this book: a handful of short stories, all distinct in style, yet all unified by the artist's singular sensibility. A master class in concision and characterization, with seemingly endless tectonic layers of implication.–Adrian Tomine (Killing and Dying, Shortcomings)
