Dan Clowes

Roight then! Here is another underground comic making it to the big screen, Dan Clowes's, Art School Confidential. The second movie of Clowes that is again directed by Terry Zwigoff, who did Ghost World. This movie is based on a 4 page comic Dan did in his infamous EIGHTBALL comic. If you have never read any of his stuff then you are missing out on one of comix royal ambassadors. Ice Haven is his latest graphic novel that shows Dan has still got the touch of pushing the medium within the confines of it's cartoony past. So, go watch the trailer but more importantly pick up one of his comics! Clowes, Seth, Chris Ware and Charles Burnes and many others should be tattooed onto the long arm for all to see.
