Ghost World

Rented the Ghost World dvd last night, and though I liked it just fine it wasn’t really what I was expecting. Probably because my only previous impression of it was gathered from briefly flipping through parts of the graphic novel in a bookstore. I’d really like to read the comic now, because it seemed to me that it would be better suited at telling that kind of story and fleshing out the characters than the movie did. Not to slight the movie, which did an excellent job, but it just seemed like something I’d find more fulfilling as a graphic novel, especially the ending (which I’ve heard is actually pretty different in the comic).
