Overview

The Laugh-Out-Loud Cats Sell Out by Adam Koford

Adam Koford's The Laugh-Out-Loud Cats Sell Out is a hilarious and charming mash-up of LOLcats (those ubiquitous online photos of cats, captioned humorously and ungrammatically) with the stylings of early 20th-century American comics, such as Walt Kelly's Pogo and George Herriman's Krazy Kat. These single-panel comic strips, drawn on "vintage" off-white paper and purportedly created around 1912 by Koford's great-grandfather, Aloysius "Gorilla" Koford, allow familiar jokes, plus references to Proust, Star Wars, Lovecraft, classical mythology, and everything in between, to transcend their origins in a fresh, inventive way.

The Laugh-Out-Loud Cats Sell Out presents the very best of Koford's online archives, alongside 30 new comics produced exclusively for this collection. An introduction by bestselling author and Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, whose "700 Hoboes" project inspired Koford to create The Laugh-Out- Loud Cats, frames the strips for both the longtime fan and the LOLinitiate.

A. Koford has crafted a gem with this book. 50% old school comics humor, 50% pop commentary, and 50% nonsensical wonderfulness. (That's 150%!!!) Pip and Kitteh have something to offer everyone, from the casual reader to the comic book geek. Once you immerse yourself in the whimsical world of these hobo felines, you'll never be the same! Beautifully printed and bound, cleverly laid out, with a few little treats along the way to keep you guessing. Highly recommended.
