Clowes and Zwigoff's Ghost Worlds


This website seeks to explore the differences and similarities between a comic book, namely Daniel Clowes's Ghost World, a comic that ran in serial form between 1993 and 1997 in the Eightball series and compiled into a trade paperback in 1997, and Terry Zwigoff's film adaptation of the comic, released to widespread critical acclaim in 2001. In order to conduct this analysis, a brief background of comics adaptation and a similarly brief exploration of the two mediums, comics and film, will be offered as a contextual springboard for the rest of the website.
