    David Boring GN (2002 Pantheon) 1-1ST

    1st printing. Story and art by Daniel Clowes. Meet David Boring: a nineteen-year-old security guard with a tortured innner life and an obsessive nature. When he meets the girl of his dreams, things begin to go awry: what seems too good to be true apparently is. And what seems truest in Boring's life is that, given the right set of circumstances (in this case, an orgiastic cascade of vengeance, humiliation and murder) the primal nature of humandkind will come inexorably to the fore. Softcover, 8-in. x 11-in., 120 pages, PC/PB&W. Mature Readers NOTE: "Boring finds love with a mysterious woman named Wanda, loses her and sort of finds her again. He also gets shot in the head (twice) and stranded on an island with his brutish family. Meanwhile, the world may or may not be ending soon. And did I mention that much of this is hilariously funny?" -- Time Cover price $21.95.

    1st printing. Story and art by Dan Clowes. TWENTIETH CENTURY EIGHTBALL collects the very best humor strips from Eightball, written and drawn between 1988 and 1996. Included within are such seminal strips as "I Hate You Deeply," "Sexual Frustration," "Ugly Girls," "Why I Hate Christians," "Message to the People of the Future," "Paranoid," "My Suicide," "Chicago," and over three dozen more. Also included is Clowes' hilariously Freudian deconstruction of professional athletes, "On Sports," which caused a stir in San Antonio when reprinted in the city's most popular weekly paper, prompting an advertising boycott and demands for the paper to be destroyed by local sports fans. Further on display is Clowes' absurdist sense of humor, from strips like "Zubrick and Pogeybait" and "Hippypants and Peace-Bear" to "Grip Glutz," "The Sensual Santa," and "Feldman." Noted comics historian Roger Sabin, author of Phaidon's Comics, Comix and Graphic Novels, calls Eightball a "corrosively satirical vision of an America cracking apart, and confirms Clowes as a worthy successor to the underground greats of the 1960s." With over 40 pages in color TWENTIETH CENTURY EIGHTBALL is sure to be one of Clowes' most popular books for years to come. Softcover, 102 pages, PC/PB&W. Mature Readers Cover price $19.00.

    Ghost World TPB (1998 Fantagraphics) 1-1ST

    This item is not in stock. If you use the "Add to want list" tab to add this issue to your want list, we will email you when it becomes available.

    1st printing. Story and art by Daniel Clowes. This is the story of Enid (Thora Birch) and Rebecca (Scarlet Johansson), two supremely ironic, above-it-all teenagers facing the thrilling uncertainty of life after high school. As they attempt to carry their life-long friendship into a new era, the careful dynamics of their inseparable bond are jolted, and what seemed like a future of endless possibilities looks more like an encroaching reality of strip malls, low-paying service jobs, and fading memories. Clowes paints a tender picture of this intellectually precocious, sexually adventurous (despite a mutual lack of experience), and formative period in their lives, filtered through a light blue hue echoing a world lit by the cathode rays of a television - a perfect metaphor for their post-nuclear existence. Both naturalistic and nostalgic, Ghost World carves a layered narrative out of the daily existence of these fully realized young women. Softcover, 80 pages, B&W (with shades of Green). Cover price $11.95.
