To end this year, we are going to read the book Ghost World by Daniel Clowes. This was originally serialized in issues #11 through #18 (June 1993 to March 1997) of Clowes’s comic book series Eightball. It was also adapted to film in 2001 starring Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson.

Ghost World follows the day-to-day lives of best friends Enid Coleslaw and Rebecca Doppelmeyer, two cynical, pseudo-intellectual and intermittently witty teenage girls recently graduated from high school in the early 1990s. They spend their days wandering aimlessly around their unnamed American town, criticizing popular culture and the people they encounter while wondering what they will do for the rest of their days. As the comic progresses and Enid and Rebecca make the transition into adulthood, the two develop tensions and drift apart.

We will have our usual order of food if anyone is interested so bring money for that and also bring your usual donation for the Madlab itself.

Hope to see you there:)
