I certainly did. You pay for service (4). I looked at the first page, noticed the Sonic Youth reference that makes it great already.

mmm, i have to think....

R.K. Rowling - Harry Potter (i am always three years behind on everybody)
J. Cale - What's Welsh for Zen? (autobiography)
P. Roth - ???
James Joyce - Dubliners
?? - An introduction to the Brain (scientific book about neuroscience, good stuff, I can really recommend this)

And I like books/articles about culture theory and cultural behavior, and things like that.

'like a velvet glove cast in iron' is not the way to go if you have only ever read Ghost World by Daniel Clowes, trust me, you are better off checking out 'David Boring', it is a better one to get next, then 'ice haven'.

'Like a velvet glove cast in iron' is very very very odd, and not really anything like Ghost World, nothing Daniel Clowes ever wrote before or after Ghost world is anything like ghost world.

trust me get David Boring!

David Boring is kinda odd, quite confusing but still has that sad seculded feeling you get from Ghost World. after reading 'Like a velvet glove' all i could think was what the hell aws he on when he wrote this, its is completely screwed. 'ice haven' has that nice ghost world feel to it too, but nothing Clowes has done has topped Ghost World in my opinion.

It is also definately definately worth checking out Adrian Tomine's comics, he has a drwing style exactly the same as Clowes'es, i cant tell them apart, but Tomine's work is alot more truthfull and sad. It mainly focuses on teenagers and young adults from the same generation (generation X) as enid and rebecca's in ghost world. so if you are searching for something similar to Ghost World then i suggest not something by Clowes but by Tomine.

good comics by Adrian Tomine are-
Summerblonde
The Optic Nerve series - there are 10, you cant find them on amazon, but you will be able to get them individually on ebay. And "32 storys:the complete Optic Nerve series" is not in fact the optic nerve series but rough drawings and serieses that did not make it into the actual proper series.

I read Ice Haven in the store. It was great, I'll probably buy it after I get his other works. Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron seemed really interesting to me due to the fact that it was strange/messed up. I'll go with David Boring as my next purchase if you so wish though. I'm a bit tight on the green so that's why I'm not buying them all at once like I would like to.

It's J.K. Rowling, and the "three years" part is more like a decade.

I don't know what will be left for me to do after Book 7 comes out. It's like I won't have anything to live for. I love Harry Potter.

i just saved up for a while then bought them all at once from amazon, you wont find them cheaper than on amazon.
i still dont have all of them though, i need to get '20th centuary 8 ball' and 'caricature' then i have the whole Daniel Clowes collection.
although there are a few very rare ones out there like 'Orgy bound' which is about 300.00 on amazon. don't think i will be getting that one anytime soon.

It's pretty cool. Nothing too heavy, just a good fun read. Interesting to look at the variety of examples people gave Thurston to include in the book. People did cool things with cassette covers, too, sort of collage artsy covers.

I've actually made a couple mix tapes based on a couple of the example compilations in the book. The book has inspired me to start making mix tapes (yes, as in cassette, not CDR) again. There's something about having a side A and a side B that's very satisfying.

umjammer atomsk, i found some good pages from Adrian Tomines Optic Nerve series so that you can see what its like. i also just read an interview with him and he said that he send his comics to Danile Clowes before he prints them to get his imput.
