This chapter explores how Chris Ware’s comics, particularly the graphic novel Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth, engage questions of caricature and racism in American history in general and in comics history in particular. It looks at Jimmy Corrigan as an incisive critique of the myths of American national identity and highlights the historical and familial connections between European immigrants and black slaves. The chapter argues that the graphic novel is a counter-narrative to traditional and often inaccurate histories of immigration in America.
