Frankie, Dennis, and Johnny review Ghost World, as written and illustrated by Daniel Clowes. In this episode of the comic book podcast we discuss the the complex relationship of Enid, Rebecca, & Josh; why we feel this book could be a companion piece to Shortcomings; Frances’s brief flirtation with Hot Topic; the meaning of the title “Ghost World”; why you never tell your parents, even as an adult, that you ever went to Tijuana; what may have become of Enid Coleslaw; and the art and storytelling of Ghost World.
