Mister Wonderful: A Love Story

A Love Story

The fan-favorite Eisner Award-winning story, originally seri alized in The New York Times Magazine , now collected and with forty pages of new material.
Meet Marshall. Sitting alone in the local coffee place. He's been set up by his friend Tim on a blind date with someone named Natalie, and now he's just feeling set up. She's nine minutes late and counting. Who was he kidding anyway? Divorced, middle-aged, newly unem ployed, with next to no prospects, Marshall isn't ex actly what you'd call a catch. Twenty minutes pass.
A half hour. Marshall orders a scotch. (He wasn't going to drink!) Forty minutes.
Then, after nearly an hour, when he's long since given up hope, Natalie appears-breathless, apologiz ing profusely that she went to the wrong place. She takes a seat, to Marshall's utter amazement.
She's too good to be true: attractive, young, intel ligent, and she seems to be seriously engaged with what Marshall has to say. There has to be a catch.
And, of course, there is.
During the extremely long night that follows, Marshall and Natalie are emotionally tested in ways that two people who just met really should not be. Not, at least, if they want the prospect of a second date.
A captivating, bittersweet, and hilarious look at the potential for human connection in an increasingly hopeless world, Mister Wonderful more than lives up to its name.
Rezension
"Unassuming but accomplished." - Booklist
"A captivating, bittersweet, and hilarious look at the potential for human connection in an increasingly hopeless world, Mister Wonderful more than lives up to its name." -Downtown Association of Santa Cruz
"Entirely crafty...uber pretty." -Sequential Tart
" Mister Wonderful is--okay, fine, I'll say it-wonderful...this may be the most affirming and wistful work Clowes has ever done. Mister Wonderful is sly, genuine, and the mark of an artist who continues to innovate and thrive in the medium." - Omnivoracious
"Outright spectacular." -The Comics Journal
"Clowes' humor in Mister Wonderful is often biting, but here it's tempered by an unusual sweetness." -NPR.org
"Wonderful...It's a remarkable work. Clowes is a master cartoonist, and every panel features delightful linework, making the book a pleasure to look at as well as to read. What's perhaps most remarkable, however, is the degree to which Clowes creates a character, allows the reader to inhabit that reader's skull and hear and live with the character's thoughts, and sustain it for so long." -Newsarama
"Funny, poignant, and powerfully evocative...As a storyteller and artist Clowes is at his masterful best here. There may be a few living graphic novelists as talented as Clowes, but in my opinion no one tops him." -Boing Boing
"Something of a revelation... Mister Wonderful is surprisingly sweet." -AV Club
"Wrings startling humor and intimacy from numerous two-page spreads that cleverly capitalize on the book's panoramic format...this oddly affecting, even hopeful Mister Wonderful gently breaks new ground for Clowes." -Critical Mob.com
"A captivating, bittersweet, and hilarious look at the potential for human connection in an increasingly hopeless world, Mister Wonderful more than lives up to its name." -comiXology
"Painfully wry and sardonic, a surprisingly touching page-turner... Mister Wonderful includes many tour de force touches." -Philadelphia Inquirer
"A pitch-perfect combination of poignant and painful...Clowes writes and illustrates with the kind of smart perceptions and depths of understanding that reward repeated readings." -AgonyColumn.com
"The oddly affecting, even hopeful Mister Wonderful gently breaks new ground for Clowes, who tacitly dares his readers to believe in a future for two lonely, screwed-up souls." -CriticalMob.com
"The art is in a typical Clowes style, minimalistic and very humanizing, and it functions as a beautiful conduit of advancing the story... Mister Wonderful is a great romantic tale that has as much to do with self-respect and self-esteem as it does romantic love, and the two ideas marry in a simply wonderful way." - The Anniston Star
"Human empathy dramatized in varying shades of white, black, and gray-with plenty of sharp humor included." - Boston Globe
"Clowes writes-and draws-novels with lovable characters that you root for...a lovely love story about real, ordinary, consistently surprising people." -About Books by Claire Ernsberger
"The art is in a typical Clowes style, minimalistic and very humanizing, and it functions as a beautiful conduit of advancing the story and illustrating the way Marshall perceives and feels the world around him...a great romantic tale that has as much to do with self-respect and self-esteem as it does romantic love, and the two ideas marry in a simply wonderful way." -annistonstar.com
