Originally a serial comic, Ghost World is among the earliest graphic novels to be marketed and sold through conventional bookstores. ARTnews recognized Clowes as one of only a handful of artists to successfully navigate the boundary between fine art and comics. In 2012, the Oakland Museum of California will present “Modern Cartoonist: The Art of Daniel Clowes,” the first major survey devoted to his work.
