The first issue of the Novelty Library focuses on Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid On Earth. In the main 24 page color story we see scenes from his life — as a young boy, as a young man, as middle-aged man, and as on old man. The time line skips back and forth, and it’s left up to the reader to piece together a history from these glimpses into Jimmy’s life.
