I read this for one of my summer classes. We had to read and annotate 10 comics/graphic novels. Here's the annotation I wrote for that class: Enid and Rebecca graduate from high school without solid plans for the future. They spend their summer wandering their town, observing and commenting on the...

This baffles me. I can't understand why it's so highly regarded. Sometimes it's fun to be a hater, sometimes it's cathartic, but this was exhausting. There were a few one-liners here and there that made me chuckle, and others that, embarrassingly, sound like something my friends and I would have sai...

Daniel Clowes's gorgeous lines and ability to depict a slice of life of a couple of imaginary teenage girls was astounding. Even though they annoyed me to pieces (from the slut-shaming to the always-being-complaining-about-anything-and-anyone to the really mean prank they pulled on that guy) I could...

I can see how this comic would have massive cult appeal to the 'disenfranchised youth' of the 90's. However, this book is the bastard child of Strangers in Paradise and Johnny the Homicidal Maniac with a dash of Clerks. It has all the negativity of both books (Plus Daria and Roseanne) but none of th...

I really enjoyed the film adaptation of this graphic novel, so thought I would give the original a go. The story differs quite a bit, though a lot of the snappy dialogue remains. The Steve Buscemi character (in the film) doesn’t really exist in the graphic novel, which is a shame because it was the ...

Even if you’ve seen the movie, go out right now and get this comic. Seriously. You will not be disappointed. Even more than in the movie, Ghost World is the story of the friendship between Enid and Rebecca in the summer after high school. The art is both funny and good-looking. And the story takes t...
