On "Mister Wonderful"

 

It's Valentine's Day, it seems practically mandatory that I should be discussing the romantic obsessions of the moment in this week's instalment of The Year In Comics. That's why I'm discussing the mid-life rom-com Mister Wonderful by Daniel Clowes over at Sequart right now, and, in particular, talking about  how brilliantly the strip makes us care for characters who have so little chance of happiness together. I hope you'll consider popping over and taking a look. If you've not read Mister Wonderful yet, the original version of the tale can still be found, and for free too, on the New York Times website here. I'm sure you don't need me to convince you that it's a book that's more than just worth the reading.
