If you arrived at Fantagraphics Bookstore moments after Daniel Clowes was seated for his signing in April, you missed your chance to pick up an advance copy of The Complete Eightball. All 30 copies of the handsome slipcase volume were snatched up within minutes. We finally have them back in stock. Relive your misspent youth, or discover the appeal of these deranged comix if you were too young to fully appreciate them when first released. We still have a sizable selection of original Eightball comic books as well as collections from the series like Ghost World, Caricature, and Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, among others. Come enjoy the enduring magic of Eightball. Our sources say yes!
