ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Who is Dan Clowes? I’ve never heard of him. What work has he done? Does he have a book out? Etc.
I think he has some kind of book coming out or something.
He’s some kind of modern cartoonist, I think, and for a while there were some days to him, or something.
He’s like a bald, sardonic Mr. Rogers.
When in doubt – Wikipedia! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Clowes
It has now been five days since his new book was released. It has now been six days since his new book was released. It has now…
If you have not read Ice Haven and Death Ray they are two of the best works of fiction I have read. These stories sit with the best stories by Carver, Ballard and George Saunders to me.
My favorite Clowes is probably Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron. It has a great David Lynch quality to it where these odd surreal characters are put in a dark, lonely, mysterious context that is completely believable.
