This chapter examines Chris Ware’s relationship(s) with artist and sculptor Joseph Cornell. One of the elements of Ware’s artistic biography is his affinity for the work of Cornell, and this was confirmed by Daniel Raeburn in his 2004 Yale University Press monograph suggesting that Ware “reveres” the older artist. Yet Ware’s comics appear to be almost perfectly opposed to Cornell’s combinatory aesthetic. This chapter looks at autobiography as an ambivalent prospect for Ware by analyzing his comic strips such as Quimby the Mouse and The ACME Novelty Library.
