Editorial Reviews

Review

“…Michael Kupperman’s Mark Twain’s Autobiography 1910-2010 is very much of a piece with the cartoonist’s gleefully absurdistTales Designed To Thrizzle series…. Kupperman’s working method seems to be just to let his mind wander, making stream-of-consciousness associations that fuse into comedy.” (Noel Murray - The A.V. Club)

Mark Twain’s Autobiography 1910-2010 is both hilarious and very strange. The book exudes a unique mood of giddy amazement... Aside from his debt to Twain, Kupperman belongs to the tradition of erudite humor that runs from Robert Benchley to Monty Python.” (Jeet Heer - The National Post)

“Part prose, part two color comic, this beautiful hardcover is a fanciful romp through history the way I wish it really was. I can hardly wait for the next hundred years to pass so we can get the next installment.” (David Harper - Multiversity Comics)

If you're a fan of any of Michael Kupperman's earlier works like Snake and Bacon's Cartoon Cabaret or Tales Designed to Thrizzle you'll be happy to hear that this book continues his trend of creating some of the most hilarious and original absurdist humor around. You'll follow Mark Twain's further adventures including his WWI tour of duty, writing copy for an ad agency and spending time living among the ants with his pal Albert Einstein. Highly recommended.

It is great to read the true story that the media doesn't want you to know about! If you are a fan of other lidblowing history like The Erotic Adventures of William Howard Taft or any of the Koch Boys' Ripping Yarns series, you will love this book!

Mark Twain emerges from history, and the alleged shroud of death, to pass 100 years of experiences on to accopmlished writer and world champion pretzel bender, Michael Kupperman. This shocking expose' is poignant, post-prophetic, and a slew of other adjectives that start with the letter "P". In all seriousness, this man is one of the most brilliant comedic minds of our time. Check out Twain as well as his Snake n' Bacon Cartoon Cabaret and Tales Designed to Thrizzle Vol. 1 and 2...I make you a promise, they will knock you clear out of the solar system. Wave to Voyager 2 on your way out, chump!

I'm not one to throw the word genius around casually, so I told my genius children to go to their genius-painted room and leave me in my genius chair to ponder the genius that is Michael Kupperman and his genius tome. It is pure genius mixed with enough humor and art drawings to attract an audience of mammals, reptiles, insects, extinct animals and even humans. The genius of Michael K. is that he was there, ready and willing, to accept this document from the long-thought dead Mark Twain and had the courage to publish the adventures of our white-suited saint of sentences as he traversed the 20th century. If there's a funnier book of stories, comics and illustrations about Mark Twain's journey through the last 100 years of history I'd like to see it.
