Chapter One. Chapter Two. Chapter Three. Chapter Four. Chapter Five. Chapter Six. Minor characters[ edit ] Beyond Enid and Rebecca, there are many minor and recurring characters in the comic strip: Josh, a soft-spoken employee at a self-service convenience store.

Both Enid and Rebecca are infatuated with him at different points in the story. Melorra, an overachieving , perky and popular classmate of Enid and Rebecca who seems to unexpectedly appear out of the blue wherever Enid and Rebecca may be.

Bob Skeetes, an astrologer that early in the book is referred to as the "creepy Don Knotts guy". Oomi, Rebecca's fragile old grandmother, with whom Rebecca lives. Norman, an old man who waits on a bench for a bus that never comes. Enid's somewhat effeminate father and his girlfriend Carol, who resurfaces from Enid's past.

Allen, or "Weird Al", the waiter at the fake s diner called Hubba Hubba the name is changed to Wowsville in the film. John Ellis, an acquaintance of Enid and Becky's, who often associates with them despite their dislike of him.

John Ellis is obsessed with stereotypically "morbid" and "offensive" things, such as Nazis , serial killers , child pornography , guns, circus freaks , torture, snuff films , and so forth. He is referred to as having a zine called Mayhem which runs stories on these topics. Johnny Apeshit, a former punk rocker and heroin addict turned would-be businessman, who is famous among the girls for spray painting the word " anarchy " on Enid's dad's car.

Enid tells Naomi the story of her first sexual experience and suggests that the two have a casual friendship. Allen Weinstein, the boy with whom Enid had her first sexual experience.

They may not actually be satanic, but rather appear that way in Enid's imagination probably due to the fact that the male of the relationship bears a resemblance to Anton LaVey. Enid makes fun of their use of an umbrella in broad daylight an umbrella can often be used as a sunshade. History[ edit ] Ghost World was first conceived in the early s by Daniel Clowes.

Clowes began writing Ghost World on September 9, , and stated that he created the first chapter without any plans to continue it. Clowes also credits as having drawn some inspiration from the film The World of Henry Orient , in which two curious young girls stalk a middle-aged man who is having an affair. Many readers have tried to interpret where the title Ghost World comes from; Clowes has said it comes from something he saw scrawled on a building in his Chicago neighborhood. The series was a major departure for Clowes, who had previously populated Eightball with considerably more outlandish material.

Clowes has said in interviews that he chose two teenage girls for his protagonists partly because he could use them to express his more cynical opinions without readers taking the characters as author surrogates. Art work and illustration of Ghost World[ edit ] Clowes has said he chose the pale blue coloring for the book because he wanted to reflect the experience of walking home in the twilight , when every house has a television on and the living rooms are bathed in a ghostly blue light.

Differences between the comic book version and the graphic novel[ edit ] The comics as they originally appeared in Eightball employed only two colors; the early chapters were in black and dark blue, then black and a lighter shade of blue later on, and black and light green for the final two chapters. The graphic novel reprint uses this light green and black color scheme throughout. There is one inadvertent exception: in Eightball 16, a printing error led to the entire chapter being published in an orange tone instead of a blue one.

The character design also changed significantly during the original run of the story, with characters' faces becoming cleaner and less detailed, indicative of a shift in Clowes's changing aesthetic in all his comics, eschewing the minute facial details that had long been one of his trademarks, for more simplified designs. The character of John Ellis, for example, had significant shading and cross-hatching on his face in the original comics, where in the book he has a simpler, uncluttered design.

Another striking example is a panel on the second page of the first chapter that shows Rebecca reading a magazine. In the original comic, her eyes and chin are shaded in, her hair reaches her shoulders, and she appears to be scowling. In the graphic novel, this panel was redrawn, softening and lightening Rebecca's features.

Enid's appearance was also reworked in this panel, and in several others in the first chapter of the book. The graphic novel includes five new drawings on the copyright, table of contents, acknowledgments, and other prefatory pages. These new drawings are tableaux of events in the characters' lives that take place prior to the story, including their high school graduation, and a graveyard visit, presumably either for Rebecca's parents who are never seen or mentioned in the story, though the girl lives with her grandmother or Enid's mother who is similarly absent.

The graduation scene, which shows the two girls in caps and gowns, and Enid giving the finger , was recreated in the film version. As with Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron , the chapters of the story were given names in the novel, and a table of contents was added to reflect this.

Film adaptation[ edit ] The book was made into a movie , Ghost World , directed by Terry Zwigoff also known for his award-winning documentary about underground cartoonist Robert Crumb.Enid's somewhat effeminate father and his girlfriend Carol, who resurfaces from Enid's past.

University Press of Mississippi. Ghost World takes place in an unnamed suburban town filled with shopping malls , fast food restaurants, and urban sprawl. Rap group Anomolies called LaBeouf out on Instagram, claiming that his flow comes from their song "Perfectionist," which was written in Media, Infrastructure, and Urban Culture in Nigeria. Onstage, the band sings a series of film songs in Hindi and pop ballads in Cantonese.

This is the same stop she and Rebecca had watched Norman, an old man wearing a formal black suit in the heat of the day, wait day after day for a bus.

Full color illustrations throughout.
