Frank is, as everyone knows, Jim Woodring’s best-selling cartoon character. Jim, on the other hand, is Woodring’s cartoon alter ego, the fictional doppelganger who has for 30 years inhabited Woodring’s alternate universe where shifting, phantasmagoric landscapes, abrupt, hallucinatory visual revelations, and unexpected eruptions of uninhibited verbal self-flagellation are commonplace. Jim is a mind-bending collection of all of Woodring’s best non-Frank creative work — comics stories, prose stories, drawings, and paintings, with a new introduction and afterword by the man himself. Abounding in metaphors if you choose to see them and naked self-disclosure if you don’t, this volume of comics, prose, and images —collected here for the first time and including an all-new 24-page story— is a bounty of Woodring’s inspired artistry.

About the Author:

Jim Woodring lives on Vashon Island in Washington State’s Puget Sound with his wife, Mary. The recipient of numerous rewards―including a Genius Award―he is an animator and a fine artist as well as a cartoonist.

Review:

“Woodring’s great talent, apart from his beautiful artwork, is his ability to make these absurd and almost nonsensical stories enthralling.”
- Mark Frauenfelder, Boing Boing

“What these stories... share with the Frank-related comics is Woodring's lush but expressively cartoonish drawing style... Woodring's Frank comics subtly burrow their way into your subconscious, but the Jim stories work a similar magic in an only slightly more straightforward and accessible fashion.”
- Gordon Flagg, Booklist

“Cartoonist and artist Jim Woodring is one of the most important cartoonists of his generation.”
- Arun Rath, NPR

“What’s so delightful and revealing... is just how fully realized Woodring’s work appears in these early zines. ... For anyone who enjoys Woodring’s work, this collection is well worth buying.”
- Publishers Weekly

“...[H]ighly personal, idiosyncratic, and surreal in equal measure, Woodring’s comics could not have been produced by anyone else at any time in the medium’s history.”
- Tim O'Neil, The A.V. Club

“Woodring remains one of the most essential cartoonists of the post-underground period, and his auto-journal comics are his most puzzling, and perhaps most essential. ... By turns sexy, funny, scary, hopeless, and hopeful, they offer nothing less than a guided tour of the voluminous imagination of a definitively singular artist.”
- Tim O'Neil, The A.V. Club

Jim is... a treat, a portrait of the artist as a young weirdo, an early greatest-hits album full of emotion and experimentation and attempts to test the strength of the relationship between author and reader.”
- Paul Constant, The Stranger

“Woodring’s art has captivated hundreds of thousands over the decades, and with good reason: his style is unique is every single way, and his acid-trippy stories are incredibly entertaining. ... Seeing his fictional self stumble into situations or adventures is really enjoyable, and the collection as a whole reminds readers why he’s such a master of the craft.”
- Cameron Hatheway, Bleeding Cool

“...[Jim is] a powerful and striking work of art...”
- Alex Dueben, Comic Book Resources
