The 50 Best Comic Book Movies

Ghost World

Director: Terry Zwigoff
Year: 2001
Dan Clowes has one of the most subversive and sharp senses of humor in comics, and when Ghost World sticks to the source (originally serialized in the classic series Eightball), it's sarcastic, dark, and hilarious. Co-starring Scarlett Johansson back when she was actually trying to act, this movie goes off the rails a bit at the end and turns into a sad-guy-listens-to-old-jazz thing that doesn't make a lot of sense. Bonus: Researching this involved a Scarlett Johansson Google search.
