Daniel Clowes appears at the Parkway Central Library in conversation with Sam Briger on Thursday, March 3, 2016 at 7:30 PM to speak about his new graphic novel PATIENCE!
Celebrated graphic novelist and Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Daniel Clowes is the multiple Harvey, Ignatz, and Eisner Award-winning creator of the alternative comic Eightball. His graphic novel Ghost World was adapted into an acclaimed film directed by Terry Zwigoff and starring Thora Birch. Called “the country’s premier underground cartoonist” (Newsweek) and “a bona-fide cult hero” (The New Yorker), he is a frequent cover artist for The New Yorker. His new graphic novel is a psychedelic science-fiction love story, veering from violent destruction to deeply personal tenderness.

Daniel Clowes’ beloved comics and graphic novels have reached millions of fans right where they live, and beyond: from the stultifying suburban sprawl of Ghost World to the bleak-yet-uplifting Mister Wonderful, he’s delved into the lives of strivers and cynics, turning up their darkest thoughts and their most generous impulses, often in the same panel. He returns to the page with Patience, a gorgeous trip into sci-fi psychedelia, unlike anything he’s done before, yet simultaneously and unmistakably “Clowesian.”
Join Daniel Clowes in conversation with Nicole Rudick, managing editor of the Paris Review, for a celebration of the release of Patience on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at 7:00 PM!

Comments Off on IL – Modern Cartoonist Signing
Daniel Clowes and Alvin Buenaventura sign at Quimby’s in Chicago this Thursday May 17, 2012 at 7:00pm.
About the book:
Throughout his twenty-five-year career, Daniel Clowes has always been ahead of artistic and cultural movements. In the late 1980s and 1990s his groundbreaking comic-book series Eightball defined the indie aesthetic of alternative comics, with wit, venom, and even a little sympathy. His breakthrough success, Ghost World, convinced mainstream readers of comics’ literary potential. In the new millennium, with works such as Ice Haven, Wilson, Mister Wonderful, and The Death-Ray, Clowes has redefined the graphic novel as an art form.
Now, for the first time, the award-winning, New York Times bestselling graphic novelist, cartoonist, and screenwriter opens his archives. The Art of Daniel Clowes: Modern Cartoonist, the first monograph on one of America’s most innovative cartoonists, collects Clowes’s best-known work alongside seldom-seen illustrations, personal photos and memorabilia, behind-the-scenes drawings and sketchbook pages, and unpublished comics and original art. This lavishly illustrated celebration of Clowes’s work, edited by Alvin Buenaventura, designed by Jonathan Bennett, also features essays by noted contributors such as Chip Kidd and Chris Ware.
