it was amazing
bookshelves: absurdity, graphica, naughtyness

People, people, people. Here's one I HIGHLY recommend. This comic strip writer/illustrator is a true artist. Brilliant, clever ideas abound in language and images. Wildly imaginative, deeply funny (and/or disturbing). Some strips are so subtle I had to stare at them for awhile to get the joke. But it's there, people. Oh, it's there. And he gets real too. It's not often enough where you get to see serious topics like death and sex teased in a comic strip. I tell you, I've read this through twice and checked out newer strips online and I think about them over and over. For me, this is on my list with Peanuts and Calvin & Hobbes and the Far Side. I jest you not.

I've been reading it online for a long time - I've been meaning to get my hands on this collection but forget about books that the library doesn't have. Maybe I should fill out a purchase request...

Will Worry not! The library does have this wonderful book. Order one today!
