    Amazing!

    All I have to say is that this is the best book I've ever looked at. And it made me stop and think..."Hey, dolphins really are worse than nazis."

    A Perfect Work to Offend Everyone!!

    This book has it all in the way of alternative comics. Taboos are broken in every possible way botched abortions, rape, incest, drug abuse, necrophilia, child rape, crude sexual humor, and drug abuse are used to full effect. If you offend easily, don't look at this book. Open minded readers are fully welcome.
