Dan Clowes's first collection since his acclaimed Ghost World is a hypnotically intense collection of short stories and graphic novellas from the award-winning Eightball comic. "Caricature" includes semi-autobiographical tales of lost youth, featuring the title story, "Caricature" about an itinerant caricaturist who fails to find love -- or much of anything -- on the road. Also, two full-color stories that showcase Clowes's broad mastery of styles.
