    Daniel Clowes (b. 1961) emerged from the "alternative comics" boom of the 1980s as one of the most significant cartoonists and most distinctive voices in the development of the graphic novel. His serialized Eightball comics, collected in such books as David Boring, Ice Haven, and Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, helped to set the standards of sophistication and complexity for the medium. The screenplay for Ghost World, which Clowes co-adapted (with Terry Zwigoff) from his graphic novel of the same name, was nominated for an Academy Award. Since his early, edgy Lloyd Llewellyn and Eightball comics, Clowes has developed along with the medium, from a satirical and sometimes vituperative surrealist to an unmatched observer of psychological and social subtleties. In this collection of interviews reaching from 1988 to 2009, the cartoonist discusses his earliest experiences reading superhero comics, his time at the Pratt Institute, his groundbreaking comics career, and his screenplays for Ghost World and Art School Confidential. Several of these pieces are drawn from rare small-press or self-published zines, including Clowes's first published interview. He talks at length about the creative process, from the earliest traces of a story, to his technical approaches to layout, drawing, inking, lettering, and coloring. The volume concludes with a 2009 interview conducted specifically for this book.

    Originally published in a somewhat different form as part of Daniel Clowes's occasional comic book Eightball, this piece finds Clowes moving beyond the withering satire of his earlier works to a more nuanced style. Readers will wince even as they feel sympathy for the self-deluded characters who reside in Ice Haven. This group of oddballs plays out their stories against the mysterious disappearance of a little boy named David Goldberg, whose possible murder recalls the Leopold and Loeb case. Clowes unfolds the multi-faceted story as a series of brief comics, some drawn in a wildly cartoony style, others in his well-known 20th-centeury style. Color illus. 88p.

    This hilarious classic from Dan Clowes is a brutal and scathing peek into the insular, pathetic world of the comic book industry - which makes it extraordinarily funny. From cradle to grave, Clowes presents, skewers, and lampoons the complete saga of anti-hero Dan Pussey (pronounced 'Pooh-say'). Through it all, Pussey dreams endlessly about having sex with a woman, but even those fantasies degenerate into super-hero scenarios. If you think Comic Book guy on the Simpsons is pathetic....!
