Review: MISTER WONDERFUL by Daniel Clowes

Mister Wonderful: A Love StoryMister Wonderful: A Love Story by Daniel Clowes
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Marshall is on a blind date. He desperately wants it to work, or at least not crash and burn. As he tells the story of what happened that evening, I found myself wanting to like Marshall, but he just isn’t very interesting, compelling, or appealing. The other characters are sympathetic but also not likeable.

Daniel Clowes doesn’t break any new graphic novel ground here. The story is told and drawn in standard fashion, although the way his thoughts overpower the conversation going on around him is represented in a way that makes visual sense.
