Reviews - What do customers think about McSweeney's Issue 13 (Mcsweeney's Quarterly Concern)?

Best McSweeney's issue  Aug 14, 2007
To date this has been the best issue of McSweeney's. If you're interested in comics in any way, or even if you just want a pretty book around the house, I highly recommend this.

There are some great pieces of prose by excellent people in the comic community, and even more importantly it's chock full of great independent comics and excerpts. It's like having the biggest Sunday comic section ever made, except all the Nancys and Family Circuses are replaced by the likes of Chester Brown and Joe Sacco.
This book radiates  Feb 23, 2006
I have had this book for a year now, and I still get fits of joy every time I take it in my hands or just get a glimpse of its spine on the bookshelf. It's the book I always wanted as a child and never got. Though it contains no children's stuff (of airy-fairy kind or other), it somehow touches the wondering child in me. I wish it had nine more volumes - or better still, McSweeney's dedicated itself exclusively to alternative comics. Congratulations for designer and editor Chris Ware for creating a deeply endearing experience instead of what could have been just an ordinary anthology.

The Best American Book  Oct 27, 2005
One of the best books in the history on humankind... recommended for all who want to know where the book as a form of communication has been going for the last 100 years and will go from here on ...
Extensive overview of comic history. Just beautiful.  Apr 29, 2005
For those few who cares, the design of this book is breath-taking. Chris Ware does, not, slack. Every bit of this book is given great level of attention in making sure the details are absolutely perfect.

If you have any love for 1) Comics or 2) Book Design at all, this book is a MUST GET.

Chris Ware; most important Designer and Cartoonist right now.

The Most Beautiful Book I Own  Mar 12, 2005
No kidding. Even outside of the inherent quality of the content, this thing is a joy.
