Clowes' "Death Ray" to be a movie
Once again, I pulled this news item from the ICV2 website. Looks like Jack Black's production company is getting set to do a film adaptation of one of the greatest single-issue comics ever... Daniel Clowes' "Death Ray" story from EIGHTBALL #23. Previous adaptations of Clowes' works include Ghost World and Art School Confidential, both great non-mainstream films. (You've seen them, right? Right?)
I was blown away (heh) by this story... it's absolutely compelling and really highlights what comic book storytelling can be... a unique voice best portrayed by this specific artform - comics.
The movie should be interesting.
