Yesterday saw the debut of the latest New York Times comic strip, LOW MOON by Jason! Huzzah! And it's a decaffeinated Western, no less.
Here's the first look at the forthcoming Ghost World Special Edition cover by Daniel Clowes. This jpg won't do the book justice: it's a deluxe hardcover with silver ink and spot varnish and perhaps some slight tweaking still to come by Mr. Clowes. The book is going to be amazing, in the vein of the impeccable Palestine Special Edition, though with even more uncollected material than that book. Weighing in at nearly 300 pages, it includes the original classic graphic novel, the Academy Award-nominated screenplay, and almost 50 pages of supplementary material never before collected, including several new strips created for the book, a new introduction and annotations to the graphic novel by Clowes, as well as a comprehensive retrospective of every piece of GW artwork and merchandise related to the book and film.
We'll preview more soon; expect book to be in stores by early summer.
