This is even filthier than his others, which is why it owns. Dirty and sexual humor are great guilty pleasures of mine and have been since I was a teenager, so if you're like me, go out and read this book.

B Kliban was a genius of cartoon art. Aside from practically single-handedly inventing the absurdist cat cartoon genre, his other books from the late 70s all advanced the cause of avant-garde cartooning, and are all stil well worth seeking out today.

This guy is visionary. Life-changing. Porcupine-whacking.

Got this and the Cat book at a used book store in Menlo Park. Actually my son found them, and was cracking up reading through them. The cartoons in the two books are sort of a proto-Far Side, so I can see why he liked them so much.

Whack Your Porcupine and Other Drawings by B. Kliban (Workman Publishing Co. 1977)(741.5073). Before Gary Larsen dreamed up the comic "The Far Side", the standard for comic strip lunacy was set by B. Kliban. This is one of his best collections, and it is laugh-out-loud funny! My rating: 7.5/10, finished 1977.

Oh well, at the risk of being like everybody else in the world (since I'm sure EVERYONE will agree w/ me), this is a very, very funny bk. I hope that some day I'm standing around at a cocktail party, drinking Mai Tais, & that B. Kliban appears & we start talking about sports or motor mechanics.
