A very good price for this graphic novel by Dan Clowes, one of the masters of the artform in my opinion. The next cheapest seems to be around a fiver.

Play.com are also selling After Dark by Haruki Murakami for the same price if anyone is interested.

Score. Hot stuff.

Ordered, We3 for £2.79 as well. link

This is 80 pages. There's another version with 144 pages, so this doesn't look like the complete collection. A shame, I'd have snapped it up otherwise.

I think that's the screen-play that you speak of. This is the only version I am aware of.

I concur with dgriz, there is a special edition available which combines both the movie screenplay and the graphic novel, but this is the complete story.

This is a fantastic graphic novel. Snap it up at this price.

As above - this is the full graphic novel. The movie took the story and extrapolated on it, but this is the original.

Great, thanks for the replies. I've now ordered. I loved the movie so can't wait for this

I was having a clearout last week and found this in the cupboard, was going to take it to the charity shop as I still haven't read it.

Great great deal. This book should be given out to teenagers in schools. They'd learn a lot more about life than from reading Macbeth. Great book.

gone up to £4.99

I would like to read your explanation on this point! Thora Birch's character is hardly a match for Lady Macbeth. Steve Buscemi is no power hungry would-be monarch willing to betray his friend, who is subsequently haunted by his ghost!

Macbeth has themes of obsession, vengeance and destiny which have endured for five centuries. Somehow I don't think Ghost World will endure another twenty years.

I did enjoy the Ghost World film.
