Review:

Dan Clowes described the story in Ghost World as the examination of "the lives of two recent high school graduates from the advantaged perch of a constant and (mostly) undetectable eavesdropper, with the shaky detachment of a scientist who has grown fond of the prize microbes in his petri dish". From this perch comes a revelation about adolescence that is both subtle and coolly beautiful. Critics have pointed out Clowes's cynicism and vicious social commentary, but if you concentrate on those aspects, you'll miss the exquisite whole that Clowes has captured. Each chapter ends with a melancholia that builds towards the amazing, detached, ghost-like ending. -- Poppy Andress

Review:

The appeal of Daniel Clowes' breakout graphic novel lies not from what could be predictable plotting, but from its engaging character work. It is the relationship between outsider teens Enid and Rebecca that holds readers in its hilariously cynical sway from panel one.

Ranked #6 of The 20 Best Graphic Novels of the Decade (2009).

Ranked #10 of "The 25 Greatest Gen X Books of All Time" (2009).

The most readable comic of the year.--"Best of 2000"
