Ghost World

The Heroic Girls team tackles Ghost World, a darkly subversive coming of age comedy that pulls at your heartstrings with its themes of the loss of childhood, friendship and sense of belonging.

Originally serialized in the pages of the seminal comic book “Eightball” throughout the mid-1990s, this quasi-autobiographical story (the name of one of the protagonists is famously an anagram of the author’s name) follows the adventures of two teenage girls, Enid and Becky, two best friends facing the prospect of growing up, and more importantly, apart.
