It's understandable that folks who are into Ware's apparently uncomplicated visual style might find the verbally dense academic prose a bit of a bramble patch to get through. This is not the expedient text of a comic or even a graphic novel. As the kids might say, it could be tl;dr if one purchased this book looking for comics. However, if you were looking for a variety of perspectives on Ware's work, including both criticism and praise, this is a fantastic selection of well-thought, well-written and well-edited essays.
(tl;dr is 'too long; didn't read', if you were wondering.)
There's some good Ware artwork, but so what? I've got all of Ware's work, and this is the least important.
