LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

hris Ware's Jimmy Corrigan series, featuring a title character whose predilection for calamitous misadventure falls just shy of the explosive action set-pieces found in Beckett's "Waiting for Godot," is a triumph of the sublime.

Daniel Clowes has been called "the country's premier underground cartoonist," a term that might make ex-hippies think his work consists of explicit sex and drug humor.

Regarded as the world's foremost book jacket designer, Chip Kidd's work has helped spawn a revolution in the art of American book packaging in the last ten years.

Also, another dysfunctional family from Kate Atkinson, a new anthology of Southern poetry, and more.
