The first in series. I'm gonna post a page from my 'con' sketchbook approximately every day until I'm done (it'll take a few months). I hope this doesn't seem too self-serving, I'm really thinking some of you will enjoy these. And this way if my house ever burns down they will live on. Here's the very first, by Daniel Clowes:
Our pal Rebecca Rosen from Drawn & Quarterly sent us these pictures from a mall in Bizarro World (a.k.a. Hong Kong). If there are any more Flog readers out there in Hong Kong, send more pictures! Rebecca took all she could: "Sorry I didn't get a better shot of the panel display....That last kind of blurry shot? That's when the security guard began loudly reprimanding me in Cantonese for illegally taking pictures in a mall."
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.
Daniel Clowes's "Modern Cartoonist" essay caused quite a stir when it originally appeared as a bound-in booklet accompanying Eightball #18 in 1997; now we have archived it for your reading pleasure here on the Fantagraphics.com website.
