I shouldn't laugh, but...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Perry Bible Fellowship Almanack (Hardcover)
Bizarre, frequently disturbing and often just plain silly, Perry Bible Fellowship is an online comic strip boasting gorgeous artwork and a unique sense of humour. It's not a million miles from The Far Side, but with a jet-black streak that somehow manages to elicit sympathy for the characters even while you're laughing.
Despite the colourful drawings and alluring cover this is not a book for kids.
The Perry Bible Fellowship Almanack is far superior to previous PBF publication 'The Trial of Colonel Sweeto' as it doesn't just have all the comics found in that edition, but every strip ever published, plus extras including an interview with the creator and comics that have never previously been available.
This alone should be enough to tempt any PBF fan, but it's also worth noting that this gorgeous hardback is the kind of thing you'll be happy to have on display in the living room. They could have packed two or more strips together, but each comic is enlarged and given its own page. The book is surprisingly big, the paper from good quality stock and it has a reassuring weight to it, which make its relatively low price a pleasant surprise.
If you've never experienced PBF before and enjoy dark, absurd humour then you're in for a treat. Don't read it online first, just buy this book.
