The film departs from its source material in a number of ways.
* Enid and Rebecca's surnames, Coleslaw and Doppelmeyer, are omitted.
* The character of Seymour is entirely absent from the novel, and the sequence involving the prank call and the personal ads involves an unnamed older man who bears little resemblance to Seymour, and is only seen for a few panels.
* The summer art school scenes are not in the comic, and are based on another Clowes comic, Art School Confidential (but mostly original with the film).
* The comic featured a story in which Enid is applying to a prestigious college, which causes a rift to form between her and Becky. This subplot is absent from the film.
* The tall magazine store employee who sells videotapes to Enid early in the film is actually an amalgam of two characters from the comics, John Ellis and Johnny Apeshit.
* The character of Bob Skeets, an astrologer and psychic, is dropped from the film entirely. The satanists are also given more focus in the comic.
* In the comic Becky lives with her grandmother, a character who does not appear in the film.
* The comic does not feature the subplot involving Enid and Becky trying to find an apartment.
