Sometimes sensless, always tender, Comics fot a Strange World always delivers a twist of the every-day life and the (strange) ways to respond to it. A great book to relax and laugh. :)

Description


"One of the funniest books I've read this year."
—Boing Boing

Absurd comics for our absurd times, from the artist behind the wildly popular webcomic Poorly Drawn Lines.

In his follow up to the New York Times bestselling Poorly Drawn Lines, beloved webcomic artist Reza Farazmand returns with a new collection of comics that hilariously skewers our modern age. Comics for a Strange World takes readers through time, space, and alternate realities, reuniting fans with favorite characters and presenting them with even more bizarre scenarios. A child is arrested for plagiarism. A squirrel adapts to human society by purchasing a cell phone—and a gun. And an old man shares memories of the Internet with his granddaughter (“A vast network of millions of idiots. Together, the idiots created endless shitty ideas. It was a true renaissance of shit.”). In the world of Poorly Drawn Lines, nothing is too weird or too outlandish for parody.

Featuring 50% brand new content alongside some of the most popular comics of the past year, Comics for a Strange World is the perfect antidote to life’s absurdities.

About the Author


Reza Farazmand lives and draws in San Francisco. He started putting his comics on the Internet in college at poorlydrawnlines.com, and was soon surprised to learn that this activity could make for an actual career. His work has since been featured in and around such places as television sets, websites, magazines, and now this book. When he's not writing or drawing, Reza enjoys drinking coffee and looking at things on screens. He is generally a pretty good guy.
