* AdaptationDisplacement: At the time, the film adaptation overshadowed the graphic novel, and the comic became more famous for having been made into a film (people were still working out that non-superhero comics even existed). Since then the graphic novel has become an artform equally as visible as the prose novel, and Ghost World remains a defining work in the medium. The film Ghost World has in hindsight become a minor (but nonetheless highly regarded) work in the 90s indie boom, and more famous for its link to the novel than vice-versa.

* AdaptationDisplacement: At the time, the film adaptation overshadowed the graphic novel. This may be changing as the film fades from memory, given the classic status of the comic.
