Overview

Comic Book Guy's Book of Pop Culture is an all–new book from the ongoing series: The Simpsons Library of Wisdom.

Allow the portly proprietor of 'The Android's Dungeon and Baseball Card Shop' to guide you through the ins and outs, the fast food takeouts, online dates, things he hates, Wonder Woman dreams, internet schemes, chick flicks, Kung Fu kicks, gaming freaks, fan boy geeks, comic books, condescending looks, Tolkien's Middle Earth, his own middle girth, and every other aspect of pop culture from his own expertly acerbic point of view.

Comic Book Guy's Book of Pop Culture – it's the worst, we mean . the best book ever!

In The Simpsons Library of Wisdom, Matt Groening, the creator of 'The Simpsons', offers an ongoing series of portable and quotable books that will eliminate the need for all religions and philosophies, exalt man's role in the universe and make the world a better place ... sort of. No other television show in history has commented so freely and so humorously on modern times, and there seems to be no end in sight for the sharp satire and pointed parody that 'The Simpsons' serves up every night of the week all around the world.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Comic Book Guy has an I.Q. of 170; eats constantly; lives with his parents; and dispenses insults and comic books with equal abandon. At the Mensa Society meeting, he causes the sarcasm meter to explode, but in the privacy of his own book, his wicked wit reigns supreme.

    Very well done book in perspective of one of the most underrated characters

    This entry into the Simpsons Library of Wisdom, COMIC BOOKS GUY'S BOOK OF POP CULTURE, is an excellent book for any serious fan of the show. Comic Book Guy, the nameless owner of the Android's Dungeon and Baseball Card Shop, has made many appearances throughout the series' history, but is one character that less frequent viewers tend to forget. He is one of the best on the show, however, and his sarcasm and wits make him very entertaining whenever he comes up in an episode. For a surprisingly low price of $10, you get a hardcover, very well done book that measures about 7' x 6' and roughly 100 pages thick. That may not sound like very much, but it is very high quality work and the layout of illustration and text is quite appropriate. This is a book similar to Bart Simpson's Guide to Life, but instead of discussing all aspects of life, it's on a smaller scale and more focused on a particular character's views and opinions. Therefore, this is not a book that is in any particular order. It consists entirely of CBG's views and opinions on all things nerdy. Some choice pages include: The 12 Types of Fantasy Gamers, CBG's Guide to the Internet, The Amazing World of Collectible Food, Romance [Where No Fanboy Has Gone Before!], and reoccuring/variant pages of CBG's t-shirts for particular situations and CBG's Places To Be (with descriptions of every landmark.) Overall, this book is fantastic. It's not so long that it becomes tedious yet it's very intriguing and the dimensions make it smaller than your average book and durable enough for travel. The price can't be beat and the quality is just superb. I'd recommend this book to any serious Simpsons fan, or maybe just one who is a bit geeky or sarcastic. Very good read!
