Here's my basic unadulterated comic book presentation: Looking at all
the weird, chic, hip, geeky, trashy, badly drawn, cliche ridden comic
book projects out there, my goal in this audacious book runs counter to
the ultimate fanboy's fancy: knowledge. The Book on Comedy is
everything you ever wanted to know about
comedy in general... and possibly even more. What is comedy? What
makes something funny? How many different types of poop can there
POSSIBLY be? These intriguing questions are answered in a comic (no pun
intended) book defining humor's many styles and devices.
explaining what comedy is, a majority of the book functions as kind of
an encyclopedia of comedic styles and devices. This is not a joke book,
this is not a how to be funny book, I won't even proclaim that it's
funny. What this book does provide is knowledge and understanding of
comedy. In the end, you'll feel like you'll have a better theoretical
understanding why things are funny and how it works.
The rewards are what's really making this a unique limited time offer
as the book is already completed. It took me six months of unpaid
nonstop labor to draw. It consists of 338 pages, black and white,
standard comic book dimensions. I made this as a labor of love (for
fame and fortune... things I'll never get) in 2008. It has been self
published but never corporately published. I don't feel like it has
gotten the attention it deserved so I'm kickstarting to get more of it
out there. I don't think I'll ever make a book like this again. Thanks
for reading and thank you for your support.
