Before he rose to fame as the author of the bestselling graphic novels Ghost World, David Boring, Ice Haven, and The Death Ray, Daniel Clowes made his name from 1989 to 1997 by producing 18 issues of the beloved comic book series Eightball, which is still widely considered to be one of the greatest and most influential comic book titles of all time. Now, for the 25th Anniversary of Eightball, Fantagraphics is collecting these long out-of-print issues in a slipcased set of two hardcover volumes, reproducing each issue in facsimile form exactly as they were originally published. Included are over 450 pages of vintage Clowes, including such seminal serialized graphic novels/strips/rants 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,” “Glue Destiny,” and so many more, including many never reprinted before now.

What's more, the slipcase will boast BRAND NEW ARTWORK created by Clowes especially for this set (rather than the artwork shown in our preliminary mockup shown here)!

"A genre-defining masterwork." – Bookforum

"[Clowes's comics have] the perfect interplay between his tightly controlled artwork, the empty rage... simmering just beneath it, and just below that, a strangely simple yearning for simple and solid things, like, say, love... There's poetry in every panel." – Dave Eggers

"Clowes has explored the tedium and mystery of contemporary American life with more wit and insight than most novelists or filmmakers." – A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"The great thing about Dan's work is that his pictures are brilliant, but if he wanted to become just a writer, he could do it." – Michael Chabon
