Chris Ware Gets Animated

Animated Chris Ware on Showtime's 'This American Life'
Well, this just made my day. I don’t know how I missed it when the story broke last week, but since it’s possible that I’m not the only one who was wandering lost in the wilderness and unaware of the existence of a fresh dose of the genius that is Chris Ware (and animated at that!), here’s the deal:

Last Thursday, Showtime premiered a weekly TV version of Ira Glass’s This American Life radio show. I know, I know, you’re probably thinking, “why are you boring me with talk of NPR programming on a comics blog?” Well, check it: One of the early episodes (it’s unclear which exactly) will feature an entire segment that’s animated by none other than Chris Ware. What this amounts to is four minutes, twelve seconds of animated Chris Ware goodness for your viewing pleasure.

But why listen to me blather on about it when you can watch it yourself?
