Patience is a psychedelic science-fiction love story, veering with uncanny precision from violent destruction to deeply personal tenderness in a way that is both quintessentially “Clowesian†and utterly unique in the author’s body of work. This 180-page, full-color original graphic novel affords Clowes the opportunity to draw some of the most exuberant and breathtaking pages of his life, and to tell his most suspenseful, surprising and affecting story yet.

About the Author:

Daniel Clowes is a celebrated graphic novelist, Academy-Award nominated screenwriter, and frequent cover artist for the New Yorker. He lives in Oakland, CA. He is a multi-Harvey, Eisner, and Ignatz Award winner, and his papers were recently acquired by the University of Chicago library.

Review:

“Deeply felt and winding story of love and the limits of time nestled within an operatic science-fiction structure that is bursting with wild colors and page design.”
- Artinfo

Patience is incredibly captivating – a stunning marriage of text, image, and design, and a demonstration of Clowes' sheer mastery of the art of sequential storytelling. A must-have for any graphic novel section.”
- Booklist

“Disturbing, convoluted, darkly comic and just plain dark, the book itself is a thing of beauty. The book's self-awareness and sympathy make it more than just an exercise in the mixing of genres, but it's in this unabashed mixing that Clowes creates a story that is as transcendent as it is upsetting ― and affirming.”
- Chicago Tribune

“DAN CLOWES. American. A master. Perfect fusion of story and art. Clowes is an auteur. Period. A superb narrator. Patience is the rare time travel tale that fully delivers.”
- Guillermo Del Toro

“The greatest action in Clowes’s time-travel murder mystery isn’t the violence, surprise twists, or trippy visuals, it is whether Jack will choose to give into the lure of his past or accept the future he has created.”
- Hyperallergic

“A world where time travel is as real as love. The humanity of this futuristic thriller is alarmingly palpable. It's final pages left me close to tears but filled with hope.”
- Lenny Letter

“A huge gorgeous slab of a book with drawings so sumptuous and vibrant I wanted to plaster them all over my walls.”
- Longreads

“A genuine, selfless love story that stretches out across space and time, and it isn't spoiling things to say you may well have your mind pleasantly expanded by the ending.”
- Mashable

“Some of the freakiest art Clowes has ever drawn.”
- New York Magazine

“Daniel Clowes's new graphic novel is a time-travel thriller filtered through his own furiously warped sensibility. ... Nobody draws reality curdling around its edges like Clowes... and Jack's all-devouring quest for vengeance mutates his story from a sci-fi whodunit to psychedelic psychological horror.”
- Douglas Wolk, Playboy
