Críticas:

Some two decades on, [these comics] are a fascinating time capsule from another age. Clowes strove to capture the America he saw around him -- he drew a place riddled with obsessive slackers, kitsch Americana, caustic femme fatales, sweaty ratfinks, exhausting culture snobs, and magnificently, pointlessly belligerent nerds. The series is as relevant a snap shot of America's 90s Generation X as the music of Kurt Cobain, the writing of Douglas Coupland and the films of Kevin Smith. Eightball defined the zeitgeist, and in doing so, redefined the place of the comic book in popular culture. --Ian McQuaid"

...Clowes is the Man. And as if to nail that title down, we now have a two-volume hardcover edition of The Complete Eightball 1 18, which originally ran from 1989 2004. It s an early but by no means immature work, establishing Clowes as perhaps the best exemplar extant of the underground-comic sensibility of the late 20th century.... Eightball is not just a record of one obsessive s tussle with the comics medium, but a kind of history of that medium as it comes to maturity. --Roger Downey"

...Eightball... [was a] stunningly smart and innovative comic that did what almost no other comic seemed able to do at the time: enter the culture of people who didn't like comics. Eightball became one of the essential comedic touchstones of 1990s culture... the gorgeous new The Complete Eightball collection... attends the 25th anniversary of [Clowes's] masterpiece... --Sean Nelson"

With an acrid storytelling voice and a clean, spare drawing style, Mr. Clowes used Eightball... to skewer pop culture, spin surrealistic horrors and sympathetically portray youth adrift. --Ben Sisario"

Clowes offset cynicism with sympathy as he cast an outsider s eye on members of society some might classify as the dregs. As the anthology developed, Clowes proved himself a master of the short story in comics form --Jake Austen"

For a minute, forget there's anything significant about The Complete Eightball. Forget that it contains the seminal works of one of the greatest artists in modern comics, unexpurgated for the first time since they were penned in the '90s. ... Instead, considerThe Complete Eightballas an object. What an object it is! A shiny, slick, candy-colored brick...The overall effect is visually luscious and existentially disconcerting.--Etelka Lehoczky"

...560 pages of comic brilliance. The series oddballs are not unlike people we might encounter. But they could only exist in Clowes wonderfully strange and wonderfully human world.--John McMurtrie"

Daniel Cloweswrites either the funniest sad comics or the saddest funny comics in the world.--Sam Thielman"

When I first encountered these acerbic, grotesque, empathetic stories, they were part of a ''''comic book'''' that eviscerated the medium. The feeble, self-deluded, and desperate were Clowes''''s early targets, but his worldview soon became less misanthropic and more painfully observant. Now elevated to a deluxe slipcased pair of hardcovers..., these famed stories ''''Ghost World, '''' ''''Art School Confidential, '''' and ''''Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron'''' among them can be enjoyed in the context of Clowes''''s development into a master cartoonist.--Heidi MacDonald"

Daniel Clowes is widely considered a one-man embodiment of nineties cool.--Francoise Mouly and Mina Kaneko"

There s no doubt that this is one of the finest comic releases of the year. Clowes has a unique voice, and this is simply brilliant work, wickedly funny and flawlessly presented. Save up for this; it s unmissable.--Pete Redrup"

This is a masterwork in its ability to stay with stories, telling them over years, or simply telling a fantastic story that touches on something in the reader s core. The stories within vary so much there s bound to be a gem in here that will capture your imagination.--David Brooke"

Eightballis considered one of the most influential titles of all time, and with the loving care this reprint has received, it s easy to see why. --David Gutowski"

This is almost certainly one of the half-dozen must-haves of the year, the comic-book formatted issues of one of the great series of all time, featuring the work of Daniel Clowes. The packaging is super thoughtful and thought out, and of course the comics are great.--Tom Spurgeon

Great art, great writing, inventive stories, and very disturbing nightmares Do I need to describe the indescribable to you? Suffice to say his stories have everything you could possibly want from comic books and a lot of things you don t. So much misanthropic joy! ...I can t imagine what sitting down with all of those issues compiled into one book could do to your brain probably good things. If you like surrealism, humor, self-hatred, and living in the world with nothing making sense, then this is the book for you! If you don t like those things, you might like it even more.--Sonia Harris"

[T]he 18 issues collected in these two hardcover volumes offer a comprehensive portrait of a cartoonist working through creative and personal frustrations to develop his signature voice and style.--Oliver Sava"

Reseña del editor:

Before he rose to fame as a filmmaker and the author of the best-selling graphic novels Ghost World, David Boring, Ice Haven, and The Death Ray, Daniel Clowes made his name from 1989 to 1997 by producing 18 issues of the beloved comic book series Eightball, which is still widely considered to be one of the greatest and most influential comic book titles of all time. Now, for the 25th Anniversary of Eightball, Fantagraphics is collecting these long out-of-print issues in a slipcased set of two hardcover volumes, reproducing each issue in facsimile form exactly as they were originally published. Included are over 450 pages of vintage Clowes, including such seminal serialized graphic novels/strips/rants as “Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron,” “Ghost World,” “Pussey,” “I Hate You Deeply,” “Sexual Frustration,” “Ugly Girls,” “Why I Hate Christians,” “Message to the People of the Future,” “Paranoid,” “My Suicide,” “Chicago,” “Art School Confidential,” “On Sports,” “Zubrick and Pogeybait,” “Hippypants and Peace-Bear,” “Grip Glutz,” “The Sensual Santa,” “Feldman,” and so many more.
