Hopefully you can still enjoy this comic even if you aren’t aware of this horrible publishing trend. Cultural Histories are worthwhile when they address useful topics like the History of African-American Resistance or theater. But recently the trend has jumped the shark–unless you are someone who wants to read a 350 page book on the Cultural History of Salt, Impotence, Farting, Crying, Fear, Popeye, Virgins, and the Penis.
Also, check out Jen Sorensen’s cartoon this week. Being trained in graphic design, I nearly vomited when I saw the anti-terrorism logo the government made. It looks like the secretary at the office drew it on a napkin. Note to the CIA: I will redesign this logo completely free so terrorists do not laugh at us.
