Product description

Amazon Review

Dan Clowes described the story in Ghost World as the examination of "the lives of two recent high school graduates from the advantaged perch of a constant and (mostly) undetectable eavesdropper, with the shaky detachment of a scientist who has grown fond of the prize microbes in his petri dish". From this perch comes a revelation about adolescence that is both subtle and coolly beautiful. Critics have pointed out Clowes's cynicism and vicious social commentary, but if you concentrate on those aspects, you'll miss the exquisite whole that Clowes has captured. Each chapter ends with a melancholia that builds towards the amazing, detached, ghost-like ending. --Poppy Andress

Review

"For once in a comic story, people are portrayed as they really talk and act. Clowes' pitch is uncannily accurate" (Washington Post)

"A hilarious, melancholy graphic novel" (Newsweek)

"Clowes' remarkable Ghost World might some day become a primer for the next generation of comics writers and artists... Masterfull" (Spin)

"Clowes spells out the realities of teenage angst as powerfully and authentically as Salinger did in Catcher in the Rye for an earlier generation" (Hartford Advocate)

"If ever there was a comic book story meant to be examined by non-comics fans, it's this, a classic in any medium" (The Onion)
