Patience
Patience | Daniel Clowes
Patience is a psychedelic science-fiction love story, veering with uncanny precision from violent destruction to deeply personal tenderness in a way that is both quintessentially aeoClowesianae and utterly unique in the authorae(tm)s body of work. This 180-page, full-color original graphic novel affords Clowes the opportunity to draw some of the most exuberant and breathtaking pages of his life, and to tell his most suspenseful, surprising and affecting story yet.

I went into this graphic novel knowing very little about it. I‘m a sucker for time travel, so I was sucked into this book quite quickly. The colours in the art were incredibly appealing to me as well. I loved Clowes interpretation of the future.

I hadn‘t touched a graphic novel IN OVER A YEAR so it was a real delight to get back into this style after a long break.

I've read a great many graphic novels but I finally had to concede that, with one or two exceptions, they are #NotForMe. I really *want* to like them, but I usually just...don't. Anyone else out there feel me? #JubilantJuly

HippieChickHomeschool I'm the same way. There are a few I like for the beautiful art, but I don't really enjoy reading in that format. 5y
Andrea313 @HippieChickHomeschool Yes, I absolutely agree on both counts. 5y

This one's pretty good. I had some mixed feelings about it. The therapy was way off what any trained therapist would say. On a Clowes weirdness scale it ranks it the middle somewhere. Weirder than Wilson and Ghost World but more "normal" than say Speedball. This works for #localauthor. We have a good number of them. He lives in Oakland, also sets some of his books here.

StacksNShelves Met Clowes last Summer at the Berkley Book Festival. Really nice guy. 6y
RowReads1 @StacksNShelves That's cool. He seems like he'd be friendly. 6y

This is the best Daniel Clowes I've read yet. In anticipation for this book's release. I read as much of him as I could, but I didn't love his work and it turned me off to the idea of reading "Patience." I picked it up at the library today and I was pleasantly surprised. Time travel, bright colors, love, and a few good ass-whoopings.

One of the best graphic novels of the year, deservedly. Time travel and a whodunit and the trippy power of true love.

Super trippy graphic novel about time travel and saving the person you love. Time travel is always a tricky subject and it's rarely done well, but this story actually tied up nicely.

Every page will keep you guessing and in suspense. At several points, you'll think you know what's going to happen; how it all ends. You don't. I couldn't put it down.

It's timey-wimey, crimey-wimey, and a bit creepy weepy. You might find yourself dreaming about it.

Ready to dive into this. I've been reading Clowes since "Lloyd Llewelyn" in the 80s.

That was one weird, wild trip. I kept trying to guess the time travel-y plot twists but Clowes kept surprising me.

My favorite book Clowes has done in a long time! Gets increasingly propulsive, bizarre, and emotional with every colorful page.
