Patience is the first all new, original graphic novel from Daniel Clowes (Ghost World) in over a half-decade, and also the biggest and most ambitious book yet in a storied career that includes multiple Eisner and Harvey Awards, a PEN Award, and an Academy Award nomination.

Patience is an indescribable psychedelic science-fiction love story, veering with uncanny precision from violent destruction to deeply personal tenderness in a way that is both quintessentially “Clowesian,” and utterly unique in the author’s body of work. This 180-page, full-color story affords Clowes the opportunity to draw some of the most exuberant and breathtaking pages of his life, and to tell his most suspenseful, surprising and affecting story yet.

Fantagraphics and Clowes helped usher in today’s golden age of literary graphic novels, as evidenced by the just-released Complete Eightball 1–18, which collects the historic comic book series (1989-2004) that originally serialized Clowes classics such as Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron and Ghost World, the latter of which is the best-selling book in Fantagraphics’ history, with 20 editions since its debut in 1997.

Praise for Patience:

“Clowes plumbs the depths of science fiction in this intriguingly bizarre love story…Another strong entry in an already stunning body of work, and one that will surely be hailed as one of the best releases of 2016.”

– Publisher’s Weekly (Starred review)

“Daniel Clowes’s new graphic novel is a time-travel thriller filtered through his own furiously warped sensibility. … Nobody draws reality curdling around its edges like Clowes… and Jack’s all-devouring quest for vengeance mutates his story from a sci-fi whodunit to psychedelic psychological horror.”

– Playboy
