The latest in soft vinyl collectibles makes its way to the U.S. in the form of the Jimmy Corrigan Vinyl Figure, available through Diamond Comic Distributors
Jimmy Corrigan has brought nothing but success and awards for creator Chris Ware. A "wacky idea" which began life as newspaper cartoon strip last night became the first graphic novel to win a big British literary award. This tragi-comic tale of familial misery set in the American midwest spanning four generations of the downtrodden Corrigan clan has won the Guardian First Book Award for Ware, the second American to take the prize in its three years. Described by Raymond Briggs, creator of The Snowman and Ethel and Ernest, as the greatest thing in cartooning since Little Nemo nearly a century ago, Jimmy Corrigan was greeted with critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic, particularly for Ware's jump-cut graphics and detailed drawings, many of which mimic a turn of the century style. Now, fans from both sides of the world can show their enthusiasm through this brand-new figure!
Imported from Japan, Jimmy Corrigan is the latest in Presspop Gallery’s line of soft vinyl collectibles based on alternative comics characters. The figure stands 5" tall, features limited articulation, and ships in an original box designed by Ware, which features new art in full-color on every surface — even the interior! Scheduled to ship in February 2003, this is one vinyl figure that no fan of Jimmy Corrigan, alternative comics, or unique collectibles is going to want to miss.
