Frauenfelder interviews Clowes onstage at the 2014 Launch Event at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood, about the release of The Art Of The Modern Cartoonist: Daniel Clowes, creating the Eightball comics and the spinoff Ghost World series. Clowes tells Frauenfelder how he became interested in comics when he was young:

We didn’t have a TV set, didn’t have video games…we just had books, and my brother left me this huge stack of comic books [when] he decided he’d go out and meet girls…My mom would say, Go play in your room, go read your comic books. They were [comics] from 1955-65, Marvel comics, DC comics…I remember reading those before I could read
