    Pushing “the form of comics into unexpected formal and emotional territory” (Chicago Tribune), Chris Ware’s graphic novel Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth won the Guardian First Book Award, the first time a work in that genre won a major United Kingdom literary award. He is also the author of The ACME Novelty Library and Building Stories, which was named to both the New York Times’s and Time magazine’s top ten books of the year lists. Rusty Brown is the immersive, interactive, full-color story of the time-space orbits of three characters inhabiting a Midwestern city.

    An award-winning art director at Alfred A. Knopf and editor-at-large for Pantheon, Chip Kidd is the author of the New York Times Notable Book of the Year The Cheese Monkeys. His nonfiction books include Peanuts: The Art of Charles M. Schulz, Batman Collected, Bat-Manga!, and now the first fully authorized compendium of Shazam artwork, collectibles, and ephemera.
