Daily Graphic Novel Recommendation 223

untitled (for New Yorker, I believe)

Genre notes: family, remembrance, war, perception
1 page

Just a shorty today. If you want a good taste of Chris Ware but are a bit too intimidated to jump right into Jimmy Corrigan or Building Stories, here's a classic one-pager to introduce you to his lovely complexity. It's a touching, careful remembrance, one character for another. And it works as a great introduction to his standard mode of storytelling.

Also, *because* Ware's pages can be a bit intimidating to newcomers, I've provided a plausible methodology for panel flow.

Good Ok Bad features reviews of comics, graphic novels, manga, et cetera using a rare and auspicious three-star rating system. Point systems are notoriously fiddly, so here it's been pared down to three simple possibilities:

3 Stars = Good
2 Stars = Ok
1 Star = Bad
