Jordan Wellington Lint, fifty-one, is chief executive officer of Lint Financial Products, a company he began serving in 1985 as assistant and adviser before working his way up its corporate ladder to record-setting innovation in the fields of finance and high-yield investment. In his seven years as the head of Lint, Jordan has grown the company from a business lender and real estate speculator to a leading provider of network financial infrastructure services, all the while positioning Lint as a model of corporate integrity and high-yield, low-risk product. Lint's vision has made him one of the most influential and widely sought-after leaders in the complex Omaha securities industry, and his fresh approach to an understanding of local problems, leadership, and determination have enabled Lint to outdistance and outpace its competitors. Lint graduated from UNL in 1981 with a B.A. in business and briefly studied music and recording in Los Angeles before returning to his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, where he has continued his life journey ever since. In his ongoing role as chief executive officer and his dual roles as public servant and father, Lint continues to put his creative leadership and vision to work in a variety of challenging settings. He is married and the father of two boys. TheACME Novelty Library #20comprises a contributing chapter to cartoonist ChrisWare's gradual accretion of the ongoing graphic novel experiment "Rusty Brown".… (més)

This comics might be a work of art, but if it is it comes with a sacrifice of readability. If you manage to get past the presentation there is a great story to be had. The thing I loved about this comic, is that all along you know Lint isn't a very nice person, but you sympathise with him anyway, because his dad was abusive and because his adoring mother dies. But then right at the end it turns out that he was far worse than the pages of his life showed. ( )

Jesus Christ. It's a good thing Ware only produces one of these every few years - I'm not sure I could stand to read them any more often. So well done and so horribly depressing. ( )

Chris Ware continues his exploration into the essential hollowness and brevity of human life, this time focusing on a successful but unscrupulous businessman's journey from infancy to deathbed. Ware's draftsmanship is, as always, amazing. Thematically and story-wise, however, I find "Jimmy Corrigan" to be much richer.

However, a note in the beginning indicates that this book, called "Lint", is only a chapter of a much longer work. ( )

sweet, sad, confusing, sad. also, sad. ( )

Chris Ware is most famous for his brilliant and meticulous artwork detailing his stories of people, trapped in a socially awkward landscape resulting from normal personality quirks magnified on a grand scale—the comic book hoarder, the kid bullied in the playground, etc. Enter installment 20: the life of Jordan Lint who had appeared briefly in previous volumes as the tormentor of Rusty Brown. Ware designs the book brilliantly, with each page represents a year in his 72 year-long life, during which Lint suffers the hard knocks of life and poor decision-making. ( )
