Wimbledon Green: The Greatest Comic Book Collector in the World
Drawn & Quarterly
Wimbledon Green takes what should have been a throwaway gag and turns it into a comic-strip mockumentary. It is a credit to Seth's (Clyde Fans, It's a Good Life if You Don't Weaken) skill as a cartoonist that this works so well. Told as a series of short strips of interviews and adventures, Seth creates a cast of unscrupulous eccentric comic collectors all trying to unravel the mystery of the life and disappearance of Wimbledon Green, the greatest cartoonist of them all.
