5.0 von 5 Sternen Virtuosic Storytelling, 18. September 2000
Don't believe what Chris Ware might say about himself -- he is a gifted writer. This is to say nothing about his stunning talents as an artist and storyteller. This seven-years-in-the-making compilation of Jimmy Corrigan's story is both depressing and profound. It shouldn't be missed.
Chris Ware transports the reader not only to another era, but into the middle of a man's web of pain, solitude and confusion. But he does so in such a delicate, meticulous manner; it's the perfect use of the comic book medium.
Beautiful, poignant, sublime. I am a more complete person having read these comics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An exhilarating read., 2. Oktober 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Like Being Killed (Taschenbuch)
LIKE BEING KILLED is a remarkable work. Rarely have I been so affected by a novel. Both poetic and disturbing, the novel employs the backdrop of the heroin lifestyle to tell its story while avoiding the usual drug clichés. The author has created characters who, even in their most squalid moments, are touching and human. While in its description, the novel may seem trite -- as every rock band has their heroin opus, so it seems that every New York City writer has their addiction novel -- reading it is a real experience that hits all the senses.
It's challenging material on many levels. The first novel to inspire me to send fan mail of any sort.
