    Smart and hilarious

    I just recently started reading Candorville in the Dallas Morning News and since they only carry it on Sundays I was stoked to find this book containing the weekday comics as well as Sundays I never saw. What I like about Candorville is how it comments on social and political issues without being preachy about it. The Susan Garcia character is probably the most realistic portrayal of the Latinas I know who are getting ahead in the world but are still down to earth (and I don't mind that she's gorgeous, too). The cartoons in this book are insightful and funny, from the ones dealing with politics to the ones dealing with blind dates and the all-too-real and painful anxieties the main character feels about constantly having his manuscripts rejected by the New Yorker. This cartoon is the real deal. Can't wait until the next one comes out. Since the Morning News only carries it on Sundays and I don't like reading comics on a computer monitor, the book's the only place I'll be seeing the weekday installments. I recommend it for anyone who likes cartoons that are smart, accessible and funny.

    Ughhhh. Worst comic I have ever read. Well, I suppose one might say I don't actually read it. Why? Someone else may ask? Because it is awful. Thank you for your time. Maybe I was a bit more negative towards the book/comic than I should have been. My apologies, thank you.
