Format: Paperback
I'm always heavily reserved when a piece of media seems extremely exploitative. Things that capitalize on the public domain creative of other people, for instance. This book goes one step farther, and exploits the creativity of people already by exploited by the internet at all. The images contained in this book were created by at most ten people, and none of those people are credited because they are anonymous. The styling of their illustrations being used in short 4 panel comics was popularized on Reddit. It is so skilless an art that there is even a simple engine for generating them. That's right, these 4 panel comics that are just plagiarized comics that were copy and pasted are in fact too difficult for Reddit to create on their own, and must be generated. You should never judge a book or person by its cover, but trust me, if someone you know owns this book they're not worth being friends with anymore.

I don't understand how anyone could attempt to cash-in one something an anonymous internet community created (and everyone is sick of by now, anyway).
Don't buy this, don't support this!

Format: Paperback
Terrible book with terrible jokes ripping off 4chan and Reddit, the majority of these jokes could be written by a 12-15 year old and take 3 minutes worth of effort, not to mention the terrible art style which is charming when done by unpaid forum browsers but by a professional writer? Its disgraceful.

Format: Paperback
This book takes the worst of the internet and condenses it down into a single comprehensive text on how to be unfunny.

You might like it if you are ten. Or a Redditor.

Format: Paperback
Clear cash grab using dead jokes created by other people. Not to mention that rage comics are unfunny garbage anyway.

I wouldn't use this rag to clean up excrement. Do not buy.

10 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Cilly on November 13, 2011
Format: Paperback
These comics might be the most amusing thing you've ever seen--but the author has collected them without the creators' permission. These are anonymous comics that have been drawn and posted on the Internet, to amuse other people for a minute or two. Apparently the author just thought, "Hey, free book material!" and shuffled all 400 off to a self-publishing place.

It's your right to buy this book if you want to, of course, but if I were you I wouldn't. For one thing, anyone interested in these comics has probably already seen them; they're not hard to find. For another, there might be legal problems if some of the artists come forward and challenge the author's right to use their work. You could find yourself out the purchase price, with little chance of either receiving the book or a refund.
