Reviews

What these stories... share with the Frank-related comics is Woodring's lush but expressively cartoonish drawing style... Woodring's Frank comics subtly burrow their way into your subconscious, but the Jim stories work a similar magic in an only slightly more straightforward and accessible fashion. --Gordon Flagg" [Jim is] a powerful and striking work of art --Alex Dueben" Cartoonist and artist Jim Woodring is one of the most important cartoonists of his generation.--Arun Rath What s so delightful and revealing is just how fully realized Woodring s work appears in these early zines. For anyone who enjoys Woodring s work, this collection is well worth buying." Woodring s great talent, apart from his beautiful artwork, is his ability to make these absurd and almost nonsensical stories enthralling.--Mark Frauenfelder" Jim is... a treat, a portrait of the artist as a young weirdo, an early greatest-hits album full of emotion and experimentation and attempts to test the strength of the relationship between author and reader. --Paul Constant Woodring s art has captivated hundreds of thousands over the decades, and with good reason: his style is unique is every single way, and his acid-trippy stories are incredibly entertaining. ... Seeing his fictional self stumble into situations or adventures is really enjoyable, and the collection as a whole reminds readers why he s such a master of the craft.--Cameron Hatheway" Woodring's great talent, apart from his beautiful artwork, is his ability to make these absurd and almost nonsensical stories enthralling.--Mark Frauenfelder Woodring's art has captivated hundreds of thousands over the decades, and with good reason: his style is unique is every single way, and his acid-trippy stories are incredibly entertaining. ...

For anyone who enjoys Woodring's work, this collection is well worth buying. ...[H]ighly personal, idiosyncratic, and surreal in equal measure, Woodring's comics could not have been produced by anyone else at any time in the medium's history.--Tim O'Neil Woodring remains one of the most essential cartoonists of the post-underground period, and his auto-journal comics are his most puzzling, and perhaps most essential. ... By turns sexy, funny, scary, hopeless, and hopeful, they offer nothing less than a guided tour of the voluminous imagination of a definitively singular artist.--Tim O'Neil Jim is... a treat, a portrait of the artist as a young weirdo, an early greatest-hits album full of emotion and experimentation and attempts to test the strength of the relationship between author and reader. --Paul Constant
