Description

Twentieth Century Eightball collects the very best humor strips from Eightball, written and drawn between 1988 and 1996.

Included within are such seminal strips as ‘I Hate You Deeply,’ ‘Sexual Frustration,’ ‘Ugly Girls,’ ‘Why I Hate Christians,’ ‘Message to the People of the Future,’ ‘Paranoid,’ ‘My Suicide,’ ‘Chicago,’ and over three dozen more. Also included is Clowes’ hilariously Freudian deconstruction of professional athletes, ‘On Sports,’ which caused a stir in San Antonio when reprinted in the city’s most popular weekly paper, prompting an advertising boycott and demands for the paper to be destroyed by local sports fans. Further on display is Clowes’ absurdist sense of humor, from strips like ‘Zubrick and Pogeybait’ and ‘Hippypants and Peace-Bear’ to ‘Grip Glutz,’ ‘The Sensual Santa,’ and ‘Feldman.’ Noted comics historian Roger Sabin, author of Phaidon’s Comics, Comix and Graphic Novels, calls Eightball a ‘corrosively satirical vision of an America cracking apart, and confirms Clowes as a worthy successor to the underground greats of the 1960s.’ With over 40 pages in color Twentieth Century Eightball is sure to be one of Clowes’ most popular books for years to come.
