Praise for Daniel Clowes:
“Daniel Clowes writes either the funniest sad comics or the saddest funny comics in the world.” -- Sam Thielman, The Guardian
“...Eightball [was] perhaps the most important American alternative comic to emerge from the twentieth century. ... As the home of Clowes’s first six award-winning graphic novels ― comics that helped garner him a 2011 Pen Center Award for Outstanding Body of Work in Graphic Literature ― Eightball earned a place in the pantheon of Great American Comics.” -- Ken Parille, The Comics Journal
“...560 pages of comic brilliance. The series’ oddballs are not unlike people we might encounter. But they could only exist in Clowes’ wonderfully strange and wonderfully human world.” -- John McMurtrie, SF Gate
Patience is a 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 original graphic novel 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.
Patience is a 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.
Ghost World has become a cultural and generational touchstone, and continues to enthrall and inspire readers over a decade after its original release as a graphic novel.
Before he rose to fame as a filmmaker and the author of the best-selling 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.
