In the News: WBEZ posts MCAChicago interview and more...


WBEZ Chicago radio posted this interview with Daniel Clowes that was conducted by curator Susan Miller at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago on June 28, 2013.

During the interview they cover a lot of ground including: starting out in comics, the beginnings of Eightball, a tribute to his publisher and friend Kim Thompson who recently and unexpectedly passed, the motivations behind creating Enid and Rebecca from Ghost World , what it's like having a retrospective exhibition at the MCA Chicago (the city Clowes grew up in), working in Comics vs. Film, and much more... (Also, listen for the very funny unexpected cameo by comedian and actor Patton Oswalt towards the end.)

And here's a few other recent links to articles tied into the Modern Cartoonist exhibition currently up at the MCA Chicago:

Chicago Magazine
Chicago Tribune (mural)
Chicago Tribune (exhibition) 
New City

The Death-Ray T-shirt, and New Prints in the Shop.


The new danielclowes.com webshop was just launched and there you can find some new items for sale. We have the last of The Death-Ray T-shirts from Presspop, Japan (about a dozen left and otherwise sold-out*) and a deluxe limited edition of the Chicago Views prints made exclusive for our website.
