Ghost World is based on one of the most acclaimed graphic novels ever about the adventures of two recent high school graduates by comic book artist Daniel Clowes, who also wrote the screenplay (which received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay).Starring Thora Birch, Scarlett Johannson and Steve Buscemi.

Over the past 15 or 20 years, comic book artists and writers like Mr. Clowes, Harvey Pekar, the Hernandez brothers and R. Crumb (the subject of Mr. Zwigoff's wonderful 1995 documentary) have explored the tedium and mystery of contemporary American life with more wit and insight than most novelists or filmmakers. –A.O. Scott
