This Sunday: Ghost World Release Party

UCB’s PACIFIC FILM ARCHIVE HOSTS GHOST WORLD SCREENING AND BOOK RELEASE PARTY

Join the Pacific Film Archive in celebrating the charmed works of two Bay Area originals: Filmmaker Terry Zwigoff and cartoonist and screenwriter Daniel Clowes.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2008 at 6:30 p.m.

Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

2625 Durant Avenue #2250 • Berkeley, CA 94720 • (510) 642-1124

Clowes and Zwigoff will host a special screening of the Ghost World film, followed by a Q&A and book signing to celebrate the release of Ghost World: Special Edition.

This deluxe new edition of the bestselling graphic novel expands the original book — which tells the story of two best friends, Enid and Rebecca, facing the prospect of growing up and apart — from 80 pages into a 288 page, behind-the-scenes tour through the making of both the classic book and the subsequent hit film. Including a new introduction and several pages of new strips by Clowes, as well as over 200 pages of "extras": the Oscar-nominated screenplay by Clowes and Terry Zwigoff, dozens of pages of never-before-collected ephemera, including unused concept drawings, notes, movie posters, foreign edition covers, merchandise, and much more, all annotated by Clowes. Truly lavish, definitive and comprehensive.

"I really identified with the girls in Ghost World. They made me feel like I wasn't so alone." – Lisa Simpson, The Simpsons

Things I Learned from Tom Spurgeon This Week
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Tony MillionaireRobert CrumbRick AltergottJim BlanchardHumbugHarvey KurtzmanDennis the MenaceDash ShawBob Levin 23 Oct 2008 9:45 AM

• Dash Shaw and Tony Millionaire are amongst the the official selections from which the the Festival International de la BD Angouleme main prizes will be drawn from at January's festival. That is very cool.

• Joey Anuff has justified the Internet's existence.

• Charles Crumb, who passed away 14 years ago, is gone but not forgotten

• Rudy Ray Moore is not so far removed from the realm of this blog that it would be inappropriate to lament his passing here. R.I.P., R.R.M. A tip of the fur bucket to Rick Altergott and Jim Blanchard, who first introduced me to Petey Wheatstraw: The Devil's Son-In-Law.

• Dennis the Menace cartoonist Marcus Hamilton is a thankful man

• Bob Levin's blog is always worth reading.
