That's pretty great. I've been meaning to read more of Clowes' work. I've read Ghost World and am planning to read David Boring next. Do any of his other books demand my immediate attention?

Best thing I've read in a while.

I've got a weekend subscription to the Times so I've been reading it. It's just great, he does something innovative with the panel layout every week it seems.
I've run into storytelling problems working on my book and just looking at his approach helps considerably.

agreed, I'm so happy this came out.

I agree with Dave, he really pushed panel layout in the one page composition. Clowes is amazing.

I had no idea that was the last chapter. I'm really going to miss this, it was truly a highlight of the entire paper.

In fact, I think this may be my favorite thing that Clowes has ever done (though I am not as versed in his work as others).

I think it's certainly up there. At the very least, he just keeps getting better and better.

Is he reprinting this anywhere? I would like to read it all at once, on paper.

I haven't heard anything yet, but I'm hoping Fantagraphics, or even D&Q, put it together. It's 20 pages, naturally, so maybe they're be some extras and such.

I know Seth's AMAZING George Sprott strip is going to be collected eventually, so maybe they'll handle this similarly.

What a fantastic ending. The last panels really did this for me. Thank god for Clowes.

Though I haven't bought very many comics these last months, Mr. Wonderful and Acme Novelty 18 made for some of my favorite comic reading in a lonnngg time.
