The Wire | Ghost World



Ghost World Snippet | Radio Waves

Rebecca: So, what do you do if you're a Satanist anyway?

Enid: Sacrifice virgins and stuff.

Rebecca: Well, that lets us off the hook."

I've been on a big graphic novel kick lately, so I thought it would be sweet to revisit one of my favorites. I first read Ghost World my freshman year at Ohio State. I was always kind-of into comics, but reading Daniel Clowes for the first time sparked a new appreciation. His saturated, surreal world took me further into the graphic novel world. If you haven't read Ghost World, I totally recommend it. There's also a film adaptation directed by Terry Zwigoff, starring Thora Birch, Steve Buscemi, and Scarlett Johansson (before she became ultra-famous). Daniel Clowes put out a new book, Patience, this past year that I need to check out.
