MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week: Teeny-Tiny Edition

If you want to suggest a trade paperback, you need to send an email to podcast@majorspoilers.com. That suggestion will go into the hopper and at least once a month, we’ll pick a number of suggestions for you to vote on, and at the end of the polling period, the book with the most votes will get the Major Spoilers Podcast treatment.

DISCUSSION:
GHOST WORLD
Dan Clowes
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. Originally serialized in the pages of the seminal comic book Eightball throughout the mid-1990s, this quasi-autobiographical story (the name of one of the protagonists is famously an anagram of the author’s name) follows the adventures of two teenage girls, Enid and Becky, two best friends facing the prospect of growing up, and more importantly, apart. Daniel Clowes is one of the most respected cartoonists of his generation, and Ghost World is his magnum opus. Adapted into a major motion picture directed by Terry Zwigoff (director of the acclaimed documentary Crumb), which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.

    There are almost 2,000 copies of the Ghost World graphic novel in libraries worldwide. You can always go to WorldCat.org to see what libraries have of just about anything. It will show what copies are near you, and if there’s not one in your local library, chances are they can request it through Interlibrary Loan from another one.
