Overview
A wide-ranging introduction to the work of one of the most important living cartoonists, The Daniel Clowes Reader features Ghost World, Clowes's celebrated graphic novel about the complex friendship of two teenage girls. It also includes stories -- some reprinted for the first time -- about boys coming of age, troubled superheroes, and the place of artists and critics in popular culture. The volume's dozen critical essays illuminate Clowes's comics by locating them within biographical, artistic, and socio-historical contexts, including the Indie and DIY movements, Generation X philosophy, and the history of American cartooning. Selections by artists who influenced Clowes and a detailed chronology of his work round out the collection, and extensive annotations shed light on the cartoonist's sources and cultural references. Perfect for the college literature/graphic narrative classroom.
