Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Thought-provoking and original humor

More About the Author

Marc Johns grew up in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada, in the small town of North Hatley, where he had plenty of time to draw. He received his Bachelors of Arts with Honours in Fine Arts from Bishop's University. He draws almost daily, and has been for as long as he can remember.

In October of 2006, Johns began sharing his artwork online, posting new work on a regular basis. His humorous, witty, and thought-provoking drawings were quickly embraced, and earned him a fast-growing community of fans around the world. The rapidly expanding exposure has led to appearances in books and gallery exhibitions, features in magazines, commissions for the likes of National Geographic, Newsweek, Wired, and Tommy Hilfiger, and a generous amount of attention on blogs. Johns continues to share his prolific output online.

He lives in Victoria, Canada with his wife, two boys, and a drawer full of pens.

Though this is not a collection of comics in the tradition of Far Side or Bizarro, there is a lot of humor in this book. Great illustrations and hand inked sayings, with a wonderful style. I don't buy many illustrated books, but I'm glad I took a gamble on this one. Not really for kids (nothing really offensive in it though), but I think most fans of either above mentioned comics will like this book.

I came across Marc Johns work through random chance while surfing the internet. I immediately fell in love with his dry humor and creativity. His drawings are very simple, yet carry deep rooted messages. I highly suggest this as a coffee table book!
