    I’m not for anything that takes Clowes away from comics. Unless it’s a movie that’s as entertaining as Ghost World.

    Daniel Clowes is one of the greatest living cartoonists.

    It’s almost a shame to call Clowes a “cartoonist.”  I think his characters and stories set him above his contemporaries.  I heard a while back that Death Ray was going to be made into a movie.  I’m cautiously optimistic considering how well the celluloid version of Ghost World turned out.  I doubt, however, we’ll see a Hollywood version of Pussey! any time soon…

    Glad that they’ve released this as I agree its his best work. More people need to read it.

    He used to write comics that were actually blisteringly funny, but that was a bit before Eightball’s 20th issue. When he started with the muted colors, hardbacks  and heavy paper, it was like he started believing all the critical praise about himself and lost how to be funny. Maybe he just wasn’t angry at the world anymore, but it all got so angsty about these hollow people with boring lives in a prefab world where..ZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz.

    That said, a movie version of “Like A Velvet Glove Cast In Iron” would be amazingly disturbing. With an animated cartoon of “Needle-Dick the Bug Fucker” before the feature.
