Tatsuya Ishida's daily strip has become one of the world's most-read and longest-running webcomics. Drawing on wide-ranging influences--most notably Bill Watterson's remarkable Calvin and Hobbes--Sinfest xplores religion, advertising, sex, and politics in a way calls "both brutally funny and devastatingly on-target."

No matter how many times I've read (or re-read) these strips, they still make me burst out laughing! I follow the new strips online, but it can't be compared to holding the actual, physical volume in my hands. Sinfest is rude, crude, and definitely full of 'tude' but it is also extremely witty, fresh, and outright funny.[return][return]Anyone who's read the strips online has no reason not to have these giggles at their fingertips :)

I'm a big fan of Sinfest. Ishida's art is fantastic, and the comics are usually spot on. Most will at least put a smile on your face, but only a few are laugh-out-loud funny. It was fun to go through and read all these older strips again.

Found this title on a blog called "Flashlight Worthy" in their Best Graphic Novels of 2009 list. It's a completely un-politically correct comic strip. Very funny if you're not easily offended! Definitely adult material.

I love Sinfest, but this first volume really illustrates how rough the ideas and characters were in the beginning. I still loved it, but it definitely gives more insight into the history of the characters.
While there are a few things in this strip that don't work for me, what does work more than make up for it. I love God's hand puppets (and the other religious figures that appear) and the strips with the dog and cat. Lots of fun.

My favourite comic strip (web and print). It's so great to have it in book form! I hope they continue publishing them.
Heart Explosion!

Volume 1 - compilation of webcomic strips covering religion, sex, politics and pop culture. Extremely irreverent, often spot-on, and very funny. LOVE IT!
