The Complete Eightball by Daniel Clowes

Before he rose to fame as the author of the bestselling graphic novels Ghost World, David Boring, Ice Haven, and The Death Ray, Daniel Clowes made his name from 1989 to 1997 by producing 18 issues of the beloved comic book series Eightball, which is still widely considered to be one of the greatest and most influential comic book titles of all time. Now, for the 25th Anniversary of Eightball, Fantagraphics is collecting these long out-of-print issues in a slipcased set of two hardcover volumes, reproducing each issue in facsimile form, exactly as they were originally published. Out in stores May 2015 $119.99 
Included are over 450 pages of vintage Clowes, including such seminal serialized graphic novels/strips/rants as “Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron,” “Ghost World,” “Pussey,” “I Hate You Deeply,” “Sexual Frustration,” “Ugly Girls,” “Why I Hate Christians,” “Message to the People of the Future,” “Paranoid,” “My Suicide,” “Chicago,” “Art School Confidential,” “On Sports,” “Zubrick and Pogeybait,” “Hippypants and Peace-Bear,” “Grip Glutz,” “The Sensual Santa,” “Feldman,” “Glue Destiny,” and so many more, including many never reprinted before now.

"Iron Mask" screenplay!

Here it is! The Iron Mask screenplay! This is the script I wrote starting in 1994. I wrote it after reading Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron by Daniel Clowes.

There's a cop beating, an eerie grotesque character getting a haircut, murder, vomiting and degenerate family fun! It's a gas to read after it sat for twenty years on an old floppy disk! The story is a lot different than "Like a Glove," but it's definitely in the same mysterious, creepy vein.

Daniel Clowes New Yorker cover ...

I went to  a dinner party at my friend's parents house, they had a whole wall framed with New Yorker covers. This was the best, in my opinion.

Ghost World script by Daniel Clowes found in trash!


My friend Gary Smith (a great cartoonist in his own right) lent me an original first-draft Ghost World script by Daniel Clowes and Terry Zwigoff! His brother in-law, a film director, tossed the script in the trash bin after he lost the job to direct the movie.
