The May 2015 cover story feels like a long time coming. A half-decade even, but it was worth it. Chris Ware is not only a cult-followed comic book artist who has transformed the genre with some of the most intricate, progressive storytelling styles we have ever seen. It started with the Acme Novelty Library series, to the graphic novels Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth and recently grew to the incredible Building Stories graphic novel. This is what we want to document this month; a true American storyteller.
For the May 2015 cover, Chris Ware has customized a special image from his The Last Saturday comic from his series with The Guardian.
