Seth’s Pick :: Building Stories: I think it’s safe to say that this is probably the book of the week in terms of design and presentation.  Like him or not, cartoonist Chris Ware deserves respect for his painstakingly-produced comics, and this is easily the most elaborate of the projects he’s produced thus far in his career.  It’s a box full of comics of various sizes and shapes, each contributing to a larger narrative, but one that can be read in any order.  The biggest selling point for me is that this enormous set of books is only $50, a price which pales in comparison to many hardcover collections with far less material than this one.  I had a chance to purchase an advanced copy of this a few weeks ago, and you can link HERE to read my review of what will surely end up being one of the books of the year.
