One thing I love is the way everything is in relation to the architecture. The spatial location of the characters is given importance, which in today's world mirrors our need to always know at what exact point are friends are. Dwarfed by the very structure that supposedly protects them, the characters age and decay in tune with the apartment. The drawings are crisp and colorful, indifferent and deadpan even, reminding me of those laminated illustrations in airlines, which is to say everything's nicely done and intended.
In the insane world of Chris Ware, everything's till-further-notice, tentative, and tragically lurking for the surface. This convoluted microcosm is certainly not meant for your tablet. Chris Ware's Building Stories is meant to be physically handled, flipped over, devoured, and then devoured again. And if you let it, it'll haunt you even.
