9781560978909: Ghost World: The Special Edition

One of the greatest graphic novels of all-time, in an expanded, hardcover edition―the full graphic novel, the complete script of the Oscar-nominated movie, and over 30 pages of rare ephemera.

Originally released in 1997 as a limited hardcover edition of 2,500 copies that sold out almost instantly, Ghost World has subsequently gone through 18 softcover printings, selling in excess of 150,000 copies in the United States, becoming one of the best-selling and most revered graphic novels of all-time, culminating in the 2001 Academy Award-nominated film.

To commemorate the tenth anniversary, Fantagraphics Books released this deluxe, expanded Ghost World special edition in 2008, combining the original graphic novel, the Oscar-nominated screenplay adaptation by Clowes and Terry Zwigoff, as well as over two dozen pages of rare and obscure bonus material in one book, along with a new cover and introduction.

Ghost World is the story of Becky and Enid, two teenaged girls and best friends facing the prospect of not only growing up, but growing apart from each other. Clowes paints a tender picture of this intellectually precocious, sexually adventurous (despite a mutual lack of experience), and formative period in their lives, filtered through a blue hue echoing a world lit by the cathode rays of a television ― a perfect metaphor for their post- nuclear existence. Both naturalistic and nostalgic, Ghost World carves a layered narrative out of the daily existence of these fully-realized young women.

Ghost World: The Special Edition included the original, 80-page graphic novel; the out-of-print, Oscar-nominated 106-page screenplay; the little-seen comic strip created for the Ghost World soundtrack; and over 30 pages of rare ephemera related to the book and film, including covers to foreign editions of Ghost World, rare promotional art, pictures, sketches and much more. 116 full-color pages and 116 black-and-white pages of comics

Review :

Ghost World gets better every time I read it, and I’ve read it hundreds of times. It still frightens me a little how well Daniel Clowes managed to nail the teen-girl brain.”
- Alexandra Molotkow, The Hairpin

“The appeal of Daniel Clowes’ breakout graphic novel lies not from what could be predictable plotting, but from its engaging character work. It is the relationship between outsider teens Enid and Rebecca that holds readers in its hilariously cynical sway from panel one.”
- Wizard

“Are you a fan of Ghost World? You might not have noticed that Seattle-­based Fantagraphics has reduced the price of.... [this] Special Edition [that] is packed with goodies sure to thrill the Ghost World geek.... It’s a great item to add to your Ghost World collection ― or to get it started.”
- Gillian Gaar, Examiner.com
