Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

For more than 20 years, various cartoonists have jostled for the title of "spiritual heir to Gary Larson," the famously weird creator of the groundbreaking strip The Far Side. Web cartoonist Gurewitch is a solid contender for the title. His preferred subject matter certainly tracks Larson: murderous mimes, vengeful T. Rexes and adulterous rolls of coins all make appearances. Gurewitch also enjoys subverting a number of hackneyed cartoon tropes, including cuckolded husbands, mischievous voyeurs and confused Grim Reapers. But it is his exquisite sense of timing that sets him apart as a budding comic genius. Gurewitch has mastered the "soaker," the joke that stays with the reader for several minutes before finally sinking in, making it all the funnier as a result. As hard as the soaker is to pull off consistently, Gurewitch's timing and supreme confidence in refusing to telegraph punch lines, allows him to hit the mark almost every time. It's particularly instructive to read the appendix "Lost Strips" to see the still funny but broader strips that did not make the cut. He alternates between a number of art styles-all gorgeous; his selection is always in service to the joke. Subtle, sly and deeply, deeply weird, The Perry Bible Fellowship is one of the best comics out there. (Apr.)

    Amazingly creative

    This set of comic strips is unbelievably creative. The concepts, the art, and the execution of each humorous idea are intimidatingly well done. I would never have thought that I could say "The timely of that comic strip was great," but here I am thinking that about these. Just amazing work.

    Now, I didn't give this book 5 stars because the book itself, the binding, paper, and ink is the worst job of putting a book together I've ever seen. I've literally never seen a book with errors like this one. I didn't return mine to see if others were better (it's not like a collector's item to me), but the one I received had awful, dried up glue holding the spine together (that crumbled apart instantly), one of the pages looks like the reverse side because the ink bled through the paper somehow, and some of the pages look like the printing process didn't line up right (some colors don't match properly).

    Maybe those three unrelated errors were unique to the book I ordered, but be fair warned.
