(W) Clowes, Daniel
FANTAGRAPHICS BOOKS
StockID: 45047 SKU: MAY221424

Collecting issues 1-18 of the iconic Daniel Clowes comics anthology Eightball; it contains the original installments of Ghost World- the short that the film Art School Confidential was based on- and much more- newly designed for paperback by the author. The beloved comic book series Eightball made Daniel Clowes' name even before he gained fame as a bestselling graphic novelist (Ghost World- Patience- David Boring- Ice Haven) and screenwriter. From 1989 to 1997- he produced 18 issues of what is still widely considered one of the greatest and most influential comic book titles of all time. Now- Fantagraphics is collecting every single page of these long out-of-print issues in a paperback edition. It includes more than 500 pages of vintage Clowes: seminal serialized graphic novels- strips- and rants- such 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-' and many more. Features new covers by Clowes- and 'Behind the Eightball': the author's annotations for each issue- heavily illustrated with art and photos from his archives. Daniel Clowes is an American cartoonist. His most recent book- Patience- has been translated into nineteen languages- and his books and comics have won numerous awards- including a PEN America Literary Award and over a dozen Harvey and Eisner Awards. As a screenwriter- he has been nominated for an Academy Award and written the films Ghost World (with Terry Zwigoff)- Art School Confidential- and Wilson. His illustrations have been featured on a wide-ranging array of posters- album covers- and magazines- including many covers for The New Yorker. He lives in Oakland- California- with his wife and son.

bindery defects like minor to moderate corner tears, white along the edge of the spine, covers that are offset from the pages (common on cardstock covers) - bindery defects may not affect the grade much if at all

printing defects like a slight color rubs on the back covers, small wrinkles in the paper that were present on the paper rolls prior to the books being printed, paper that is "wavy" from the printing process

2 - 3 small color breaking spine dings or minor non color breaking spine dings
