"During a recent 27-minute phone conversation with Chris Ware, I was exposed five times to the phrase "don't hate me" (probably his second favorite expression), and eight times to "I'm sorry" (his first). This would be maddening, even under the best of circumstances, except for two things. First, he's quite sincere. In fact, if hešs reading this right now, he's mortified. I don't care. Second, and by far most important, is that in my opinion Chris Ware is one of the best artists (fine, graphic, commercial, comic strip‹all apply) working today."
