It's impossible to write about Daniel Clowes's work without using the word ennui. But his is a joyous ennui, if such a thing is possible, one that relishes the boredom of everyday life with a Zen enthusiasm. . . Clowes finds little miracles everywhere he looks–so many, in fact, that they seem hardly to interest him. This detachment perversely makes David Boring
deeply compelling and worthy of serious attention from fans and newcomers alike.
[A] serious and innovative work, and it's never boring.
