Rate this:
Lonely and emotionally-impaired 'everyman' Jimmy Corrigan is given the opportunity to meet the father he never had. This is the spark for an improvisatory romance, which gingerly ignores all sense of plot and drama. The reader is transported between 1890's Chicago and 198O's small town Michigan, helped along by thousands of coloured illustrations and diagrams which provide a startling illusion of life and movement. The bulk of the book is supported by fold-out instructions, an index, paper cut-outs and brief notes.
