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!

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.

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.

This book is a shameless grab for cash that pisses all over what little respect internet culture has left. Do not listen to this author! He claims that he did this "before any big mean conglomerate" could charge "triple the price". Well guess what? 100 dollars or 50 cents the money from this book is still going into YOUR POCKET containing content WHICH YOU DID NOT MAKE. Same goes for your other back-end argument. It's admirable that you spent hundreds of hours alone designing this book, but it doesn't change the fact that it contains plagiarized work by anonymous users that you are profiting off of. Would it make a difference if a team of 20 spent 4 hours making this book? No, because they are still PLAGIARIZING. The fact that this is VOLUME 2 means you should be ashamed of yourself, and I hope you are banned from publishing another book unless it is 100% original material.

That being said, I am urging whoever is reading this not to buy this book or give this guy a single cent. If you love 4chan, Reddit, Rage Comics or whatever, you are better off supporting them by enjoying and sharing them with others instead of packing them into a "book" and selling it for personal gain.

Like the Erlking in Goethe's famous poem, the maleficence of This 'Book''s ideals can sometimes be imperceptible. The purpose of this letter is therefore to expose the jackbooted nature of This 'Book''s beliefs and let you draw your own conclusions about This 'Book''s motives. First and foremost, it's easy to tell if This 'Book' is lying. If its lips are moving, it's lying. In public, This 'Book' vehemently inveighs against corruption and sin. But when nobody's looking, This 'Book' never fails to drive us into a state of apoplexy. This 'Book' is known for walking into crowded rooms and telling everyone there that anyone who resists it deserves to be crushed. Try, if you can, to concoct a statement better calculated to show how exploitative This 'Book' is. You can't do it. Not only that, but that fact is simply inescapable to any thinking man or woman. "Thinking" is the key word in the previous sentence.

To Hell with This 'Book'! In general, This 'Book' dances to the tune of sneaky nativism. Sure, there are exceptions, but it wants us to emulate the White Queen from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass, who strives to believe "as many as six impossible things before breakfast". Then again, even the White Queen would have trouble believing that This 'Book''s activities are on the up-and-up. I prefer to believe things that my experience tells me are true, such as that This 'Book''s primary goal is to discredit and intimidate the opposition. All of its other objectives are secondary to this one supreme purpose. That's why you must always remember that whenever I turn around I see This 'Book' leaving behind a wake of frightful reaction. To deny such a truth would be to deny the evidence of our own senses.
