Stories in Non-Daniel Clowes Titles  

What follows is a list of stories and strips (no attempt is made to define the difference) by DC (or ones he co-created) 
that have been published outside of his
comic books and collections. Some of these first appeared in E, LL, ANLL
and that fact is indicated in the list; many, however, never appeared there. Stories that have not been published in either a
DC comic book or collection are identified (UC), for uncollected. For two lists that include only the uncollected stories, please see
here.

[A] means DC did the art only; in some cases, the writer [W:] is identified; if DC only inked, colored, or lettered the story, that
fact is indicated. If DC colored the strip, that entry has 'clr.' Other strips may be color, but that fact is not indicated if DC is not the colorist.

Work by DC in Cracked Magazine is given its own section below because the number of stories is considerable. 

For a key to abbreviations, go here. For information on places DC stories have appeared, see this alphabetical list

'The Last Time I Saw Irving,' which appears in Love & Rockets 13 (9/85), is the first DC story from an established
publisher (Fantagraphics). This section of the bibliography does not include translations (see
Translations).

Art and Stories in Cracked Magazine:

DC did freelance work for Cracked from 1985-1989. His work was reprinted throughout the mid-late 1980s and may have been reprinted
as late as 1993 (see DC interview in Don't Touch Me 6). The last reprint I have found is dated 8/91 (Cracked Monster Party 13).
DC's first work is dated 11/85; the first Uggly Family story is dated Winter 86; DC's last non-reprint publication is dated
7/89, only months before Eightball 1 appeared. DC's pseudonyms for the Uggly Family stories are 'Stosh Gillespie,' 'Stash Gillespie,' and
possibly 'Slim Llewellyn' (see Cracked 219). Most Uggly Family stories are written by 'Eel O' Brian' (pseudonym for Mort Todd / Michael Del Femine).  
Some work was done under 'Dan Clowes': Cracked 216, 218, 220; Cracked Digest 4; DC's name is on cover of Collectors' Edition 83 and Digest 4. In
Extra-Special Cracked 9 the editor says that 'Stosh Gillespie and Eel O'Brian are pseudonyms for two comics pro's [sic] whose work has appeared in
DC comics, Fantagraphics Books and yes, even Cracked!'  In a profile of Stosh Gillespie in Cracked 226, the editor says that he 'contributes to Lloyd
Llewellyn'; in Cracked Collectors' Edition 75, he says that 'Stosh Gillespie is actually Dan Clowes.' 

Many Uggly Family episodes have the same title (The Uggly Family) but are actually different stories, so I have provided a very brief description
of the story in {}. All stories are black and white except where indicated clr, for color. None of these appear in a DC collection. 
The only Cracked story to be reprinted outside of a Cracked-related title is Let the Punishment Fit the Crime [Cracked 220 (7/86)], which
appears in Different Beat Comics (Fantagraphics 1994), a publication tied to a promotional campaign. 

The Cracked worked is listed and alphabetically/chronologically by title and by first appearance or reprint status.
