Format: Hardcover
The uniquely quirky genius of Mad's Al Jaffee, the master of the Fold-In and Snappy Answers to Stupid questions, is reborn in this long, slim, beautifully designed collection of vertical sight gags. Laughter builds as you turn each page. Suitable for adults and smart kids who love to laugh. [...], it looks like a million. The introduction by Steven Colbert kicks off the humor and makes Tall Tales an immediate collectors'item.

Format: Hardcover
I had no idea this book existed, but a friend who knew I like comics gave it to me as a gift. This stuff is GREAT! The same sense of humor that gave us the crazy back covers on Mad magazine which when folded revelaed hidden pictures. Similar in nature to Sergio Aragones' drawings in the margins. I love this book.

Format: Hardcover
Unique perspective, and I am just not talking about the vertical format give these comics charm and timelessness.
