'If I could ask all humans to read just one thing, it would be any of his books'

A man of many firsts in the comic world – the inaugural graphic novel winner of the Guardian First Book award, the first to regularly serialise for The New York Times, and the subject of a career-spanning exhibit at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art – Chris Ware broke all the rules to revolutionise the narrative strip. 

Featuring collaborations with This American Life's Ira Glass, John Kuramoto, Nico Muhly and others, dip into these short pieces of animated gold from the mind behind Jimmy Corriganthe Smartest Kid on Earth.
