“Dan Clowes! I really identified with the girls in Ghost World. They made me feel like I wasn’t so alone.”
“Yeah, yeah, whatever. Do you know anyone who works at Batman? Because I really want to draw Batman. I’m awesome at utility belts. Check these out… This is where the Batman keeps his money in case he has to take the bus.”
It’s been eight years since Lisa Simpson got to meet Dan Clowes (”Husbands and Knives”, Season 19, episode 7, airdate November 18, 2007) and tell him:
“I really identified with the girls in Ghost World. They made me feel like I wasn’t so alone.”
We totally feel the same way <3
A summary for those who haven’t seen the episode: Comic Book Guy goes out of business because an alternative comic book store opens across the street, providing a better and cooler service to the kids of Springfield. The Simpsons attend an in-store signing with Maus author Art Spiegelman,Watchmen author and notorious recluse Alan Moore, and Daniel Clowes, creator of Ghost World.
