Here’s a glimpse at Daniel Clowes’ new graphic novel, Wilson:
…which I saw at Boing Boing, which also linked to an interview with Clowes in Mother Jones. Should be interesting! You probably know Clowes from Ghost World (perhaps the adaptation starring Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson and Steve Buscemi more so than the source material) or the not so great Art School Confidential feature film (both directed by Terry Zwigoff), but his other graphic novels are all pretty interesting. Like A Velvet Glove Cast In Iron is pure mind blowing weird, but interesting, and I’d give my highest possible recommendation to David Boring, which is both strange and compellingly readable. And… frighteningly delicious. It’d easily be in my top ten (non superhero) comics of all time, and I’m glad that Time magazine agrees with me.
