|New from||Used from|
"There are no duds whatsoever in this collection, every cartoon made uslaugh - some for ages. We quickly became that annoying person who keepscalling everyone over to look at something when they're trying to work."Look at this one though!" "OK, seriously, this is the best one." "LOOKIT'S YOU IN BEAR FORM" and so on. We have no friends left, but nor dohalf the people in the cartoons, which made us feel better." - Holly Brockwell, Gadgette.com
"Moving on, Jim Benton is a madman. His comics are a brilliant breath of fresh air in a webcomics smoking lounge, but he's still a madmannonetheless." - Cameron Hatheway, whysoblu.com
"...this cartoon collection for "People and Advanced Bears" is silly, witty, and laugh-out-loud fun." - Erica Sadun
From the Back Cover
"Jim Benton has my number. Page after page made me laugh out loud. It's all twisted and hilarious. What more could you possibly want from a book?" -R.L. Stine, author of the Goosebumps series
"Jim Benton's comics are not always funny; sometimes they're moving. But they're not always moving; sometimes they are really deep. But they're not always deep; sometimes they're caustic. But they are not always caustic; sometimes they're just funny. Anyway, they are good. Always REALLY good." -Boulet, French comic book creator and cartoonist

I then discovered his twitter and reddit account in addition to his print books.
He is so talented in many ways.
I love his sense of humor and love his illustration.
This book has 94 pages and full color.
I love the fact that this book came out before the holiday gift exchange season.
It's a great gift under $10 ($12.99 on its cover but mine was way cheaper) that is guaranteed to make people smile.
I didn't receive this copy from anyone but I purchased with my own money :-)
From the title cartoon, where a wizard summons a lemon instead of a demon thanks to cursive writing, to a man and a woman getting ready for a night out. She transforms into a beauty, he into a chimpanzee. There are comics about art and animals and parenting. There are jokes about God and medical humor.
Some of it is irreverent and a bit gross at times. Some of it is touching and feels like how the world is. I laughed or smiled at all of it. I'm glad I got introduced to this artist through this collection.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
Okay, so I am not really sure how to review a book of comic sketches. I do know that this was laugh out loud funny. It was pretty dark in an hilarious morbid way. I guess I really like that. There were a few I didn't quite get, but that is probably my own ignorance. This book was a riot though. Just don't give it to anyone who is too uptight. Or maybe do, and laugh at them get all offended! Lol!
So, I'm sorry, Jim.
But also, I'm thank you, Jim. I audibly laughed at very single page in this sublime collection and I can't ever recall that happening since I read Dianetics.
Got my copy today and can't stop smiling.
