5.0 out of 5 stars Great to have a hard copy of one of my favourite web comics, 7 Jan 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Perry Bible Fellowship: Trial of Colonel Sweeto and Other Stories (Hardcover)
In some ways this is a very quick review - go to the perry bible fellowship website and if you enjoy the strips I highly recommend buying the book and if you don't like them, don't buy it. That doesn't do the book much justice though...

I'm not sure how other people have come across the Perry Bible Fellowship, I noticed these strange cartoons in various different signatures across the internet and decided to finally find out where they were coming from. I landed on a goldmine when I found the website with its weekly updates, the comics are usually rather strange and often set in completely bizarre universes rarely connected to each other. Most of them I find hilarious and even though I've read through each of the strips on the site many times they still make me laugh. I also enjoy the fact that the comics have very little do with anything in the real world, no political commentary, no connections to headlines just something quite different.

As for the book itself, as another reviewer has pointed out you're essentially getting a hard copy of most of the strips on the website so you do know exactly what you're getting. If you read through the strips on the site and never go back to them then this book is probably not going to be worth the money. Personally as I enjoy reading through the strips from time to time, I'm pleased with the book. The hardcover gives it a quality feel and the print quality is excellent, the web versions of the comics look detailed but on paper I appreciate the effort moreso that has gone into creating them.

An easy five stars for me and I'm pleased to be able to pick this up in the UK (thought I was going to have to order it from the US), I've already read through the entire book as soon as it arrived as has my brother and I plan to read through it many more times.
